Best-Selling Author, Peter Bedard, to Speak on Convergence Healing  

Convergence HealingVirginia Beach, Va. – There are some people in life who live in fear of never being able to heal their pain, who often rely on drugs and surgery to survive. Best-selling author, teacher, and hypnotherapist Peter Bedard, MA, CHT, has dedicated his life to healing pain holistically-even healing himself of chronic anxiety, arthritis, asthma, fibromyalgia, depression, sciatica, and chronic pain. Using his personal and educational experiences, Peter has helped thousands of people worldwide overcome their health problems through convergence healing. Peter will be at the A.R.E. Bookstore & Gift Shop on May 12, at 7 p.m., to discuss holistic health and convergence healing. After his lecture, he will participate in a meet-and-greet to sign copies of his book Convergence Healing: Healing Pain with Energetic Love, which has been a #1 Bestseller on Amazon in the categories of "Pain Management" and "Mental Health and Spirituality" with a 4.8/5 star rating. This event is free and open to the public.

Peter Bedard holds a MA in Consciousness Studies and has extensive training in hypnotherapy and alternative health. Peter has a thriving one-on-one private practice in Los Angeles where he lives, however he often travels for talks and workshops worldwide. Peter is known for blending both his personal experiences and his knowledge in holistic therapies to engage audiences in informative programs that will change their lives. "Trauma and anxiety are like ghosts. They are memories from your past that think they're still alive and we feel them deeply. They influence every aspect of who we are," Peter says. "The convergence healing process teaches those ghosts to find their way back in history so you can be free again."

The lecture will begin at 7 p.m., and last for approximately one hour, after which Peter will be available for a meet-and-greet and book signing. The A.R.E. Bookstore & Gift Shop holds many free activities every month, including a monthly Psychic Fair, Spiritual Message Circles, and Conscious Community lectures.
