By: V Capaldi Barely back in one piece and still on an emotional high that will take me at least a month to recover from. The 2nd Annual Dr. Terry Wahls in-person Symposium just ended and I am speechless. Simply finding it hard to socialize, idealize and realize all that happened in the last 6 days. My body has demanded so much attention since I am home my post may seem jumbled and all over the place since my person has had little time to process. #damnit
The 1st thing I want to say that was the most amazing outcome was to have the entire Wahls Family present for the symposium! Mind blowing they all participated in a BIG ASS way and how much this elevated the bonds, learning and experience of the Wahls Warrior community and how deep it goes.
A huge highlight was to officially meet Zach Wahls. He has been a hero of mine long before I realized his mother was Dr. Wahls. Zach opened and MC'd with the level of professionalism, heart and soul the WORLD has grown to love. His presence is warm, welcome and commanding just like his mothers. Zach added a huge element to the entire event that was magical.
Zebby whose art is beyond words in my limited vocabulary. She is a young lady who portrays a large dose of self expression, is complex, captivating and beautiful. In addition Zebby held a key role facilitating testimonials of those like me who have been given the gift of hope and healing from The Wahls Protocol.
Last, but not least Dr Wahls wife, Jackie shared with much vulnerability her life as a partner of Dr. Wahls and MS. The bond that was witnessed by each person in the room between these two was deeper than anything I have ever felt or experienced and I am sure I do not stand alone in this feeling. At one point Jackie shared, to a tear filled room, how she fell in love with Terry's "eye's and heart and that MS did not change that." Amazing, amazing, amazing.
We were also gifted with another panel discussion that included couples dealing with both life threatening sickness and disease. Both of these couples gave us full access to their personal lives and how they manifested their healing outcome. Tears of sorrow, joy and determination where shared by everyone and after all of this I knew each of us had forever changed and become one.
When you live with disease being vulnerable in community is
never really experienced and these events brought me personally to a place of emotion
that lifted my soul to a higher level.
This years event was about twice the size of last and if offered triple the punch. A day longer and larger community brought lots of energy and was felt by everyone. As of today all indications show this outcome to almost be universal with about 1/3 already signed up for next year.
To be disabled, alone and often isolated in my struggles there is great strength in knowing that I will once again see my FAMILY in wellness and knowing when. The Dr. Wahls Symposiums are a life line and intergral part of my wellness plan and this year solidified this reality.
I recommend you all start now saving and plan to attend next year.
This is a must for the warrior in all of us!
