At a one-day seminar, Creating Healthy Enlightened Relationships, to be held May 13 at the Radisson Suites in Tucson, four enlightened spiritual teachers will share their personal stories, insights and expertise to teach participants how to navigate common challenges in their relationships with skill and heartfulness, and make healthy choices that empower and bring out the best in themselves and their relationships.

Alex Hermosillo, an internationally known healer and founder of Mastery of Energy Healing, will detail how the relationships in his life challenged him and his spirit. Hermosillo will describe the ego-based attitudes that many deal with, explain how and why our life experiences, emotions and thoughts can nurture or cause adverse effects in them and how to release past non-nurturing painful experiences through a simple yet powerful group healing and meditation in which participants will experience peace, gratitude, love and harmony. Hermosillo states, “A relationship with yourself may be the most important relationship you will ever have.”

Michael Traub, MBA, MSW, has worked as a relationship specialist and psychotherapist for more than 37 years assisting people in successfully creating and maintaining relationships. Traub will help participants identify common patterns where relationships struggle and what to do about it, provide skillful, practical tools for better communication, explain why we have strong reactions to what our partner does and says, share how to talk about upsets and describe how to make and keep skillful agreements. Traub says, "When intimate partners become aware of their patterns and reasons for reactivity and choose to use a powerful, solution-focused interaction model, they will experience transformation of their relationship."

Nadine Gofonia, a director of coaching effectiveness, has been a classroom teacher and school principal. With her personal and professional experiences as an educator and nurturer, Gofonia will provide participants with helpful insights and practical tools for mindfulness, freeing ourselves from distractions, fears and worries, allowing for positive intentions and self-awareness. Daily prayer work and meditations develop happier, more meaningful relationships, giving children the freedom to learn from their obstacles and challenges.

Gofonia says, “Each relationship is a gift, reminding me that the best gift I can give to myself, my children and others is to choose joy, gratitude, forgiveness and greeting each daily experience with compassion and love.” 

Amy LaLicata is a filmmaker, musician, publisher and founder of RainbowLight Creations, as well as co-founder of Mastery of Energy Healing with Alex Hermosillo. Through her diverse experiences in business and the creative and healing arts, LaLicata bridges down-to-earth practicality with spirituality. Participants will learn common challenges that many face with their parents and siblings (including in adulthood); how to have an independent voice through heartful, skillful communication; become an effective catalyst for positive change in the family dynamic; deal with feelings of disappointment, anger and grief; and find forgiveness and higher purpose in their relationship with family members.
