Recently, I had the opportunity to be one of the 17 experts from around the world presenting at the Global Online H.E.A.L. Summit (

It takes vision and passion to organize such an impactful global event and I had the pleasure to get to know the organizers, Verna Bowen and Tom Teague.

I met Verna when I joined her H.E.A.L. Facebook group and we connected right away. I loved her energy and vision. Verna did an amazing job featuring me as a new member and I was so touched by her write-up that I offered to take her though The Passion Test.

After our Skype meeting, Verna shared that The Passion Test cemented what she already felt in her heart about what is most important to her in her life’s mission – to “inspire thousands in their greatness.”

Verna’s big vision and heartfelt mission are contagious!

Ulrike: What inspired you to organize the HEAL summit?

Verna: It is my passion and mission to promote those who work to bring light, healing, and inspiration to our global society. I founded a Facebook group called H.E.A.L. – Holistic Entrepreneurs and Lightworkers about a year ago, and I wanted to showcase the amazing members and their outstanding services to the world. I had the assistance of an incredible co-organizer, Tom Teague, “Choice Digital Strategies,” who is trained, enthusiastic, and talented in web design and webcasting. Together, with 16 presenters from our group, we just made it happen!

Ulrike: I am sure it was very interesting, what are some of the things you learned?

Verna: Some highlights that stood out for me personally from our presenters:

1. Light Touch Therapies can heal major illnesses, and minor issues can be healed almost instantaneously!
2. The Passion Test is transforming not just personal lives, but business morale and productivity world-wide.
3. We have three brains – the head, heart, and gut – and the secret is to pay attention to all three. By doing so, we are better informed in decision-making and creating the life we truly want.
4. There is a practical, efficient process for holistic practitioners to get our message out into the world via an online system that takes our visitors on a no-hassle customer journey.
5. “Conscious Businesses” thrive via three main steps – the first one being the recognition that our clients are typically someone just like us!

Ulrike: Share with us a highlight – a pearl of this amazing event.

Verna: There were many pearls, but the biggest take-away for me was the peripheral advantage that these presenters offer each of us – an opportunity to connect and engage in possible joint ventures and ongoing collaboration for bringing healing to the world. It opens up doors for you and I to get involved and use our services in a bigger way.
