Mississippi Flooding: Dr. Laurie Pappas Offers Real Hope In The Midst Of Tragedy

Press release from: Dr. Laurie Pappas

Natural catastrophies take a serious toll on those of who must suffer through them - serious injury, the death of loved ones, loss of homes and possessions, businesses destroyed, the displacment of families, financial ruin, the cost of rebuilding - the list goes on and on. These challenges can easily overwhelm even the strongest of us. Yet, amidst this chaos, there is another way of looking at such events. Dr. Laurie Pappas offers a different perspective in her recent release,'The Loving Heart'.

"These events," stated Dr. Pappas, "have, once again, brought despair to human beings who urgently need a way to cope with the adversity that life can bring. Viewing a situation in terms of its opportunities rather than its agonies can help anyone, anywhere to deal with hardship. What if there was actually a grander purpose in all crises? What if disasters such as this could make us stronger and wiser? What if we could learn something profound or useful from our experience? I believe that it is the nature of the Universe in which we live to challenge us to improve ourselves and discover hidden pockets of knowledge and power that we didn’t even know we possessed. If we open to this possibility, not only can we navigate rough waters more easily, but we can also develop amazing new versions of ourselves – ones more masterful and empowered, self-aware and compassionate."

Dr. Pappas presents her approach in 'The Loving Heart: Navigating the Journey from Conflict to Peace'. The book is supplemented by a workbook entitled 'The Loving Heart Companion'. Dr. Pappas has included over 30 years of observation and wisdom gained from personal experiences, as well as working with students, clients, family members and colleagues. She now offers a series of teleclasses dealing with the subjects contained within her written works.

“Teleclasses,” continued Dr. Pappas, “on such subjects as forgiveness, surrender and the Mirroring Principle, help us to mend the fearful, anxious and angry states of mind that accompany us each day. The concepts taught help us to uproot any disturbing thoughts we may have, and replace them with calm, peaceful ones, freeing us to extend hopeful, caring thoughts into regions of the world that so critically need our nonviolent, harmonic energy.”

Dr. Pappas offers phone and in-person spiritual and metaphysical counseling, in addition to life coaching, classes, workshops, speaking engagements and teleclasses. Her teleclass schedule for Spring 2011 is as follows (all times EST):

Thurs. June 2 8 Secrets to Beating the Blues 12:00-1:15

Wed. June 8 Developing The Knack of Loving Ourselves 12:00-1:15

Dr. Pappas is a recipient of the 2005 International Peace Prize, Key of Success Award, and Woman of the Year Award, bestowed by the United Cultural Convention of the United States of America for outstanding personal achievements to the good of society as a whole.
