Awakening through Caritas Consciousness
Cheryl Handy, MS, RN, NEC-BC, HMCT, Caritas Coach®, HeartMath Certified Trainer
To live is to experience pain and suffering and I am deeply grateful for the enlightenment through Unitary Caring Science and Caritas Consciousness that opened space for me to experience a deeper level of wisdom and being. I would like to talk about awakening through Caritas Consciousness that takes you through a higher dimension of human consciousness through cultivating the ontological micro-practices of gratitude, forgiveness, surrendering, and compassion. (Dr. Watson addresses these ontological micro-practices in her book, Caring Science as Sacred Science).
Cheryl T. Handy became the Atlanta VA Healthcare System's first Caritas Coach and the first Caritas Coach in the state of Georgia in October 2010. Cheryl began her career with the VA system in 1983 and retired from the Atlanta VA Healthcare System in 2023 after 40 years of amazing compassionate care and services provided for our nation’s veteran heroes. Cheryl’s passion remains in enlightening others about Caring Science while radiating a Caritas Consciousness, and walking alongside others as they evolve in Caritas Consciousness. She is a Watson Caring Science Institute Faculty with the Caritas Coach Education Program and a board member with Watson Caring Science Institute. Cheryl remains honored and humbled to be a part of a collective community whose mission is to contribute to elevating the consciousness of Nursing, healthcare, and all of humanity through compassion, caring, and lovingkindness.

Poetry - A Perscription for What Ails You
Nurse poet, author, healer and educator Paulina Van will be joining us to talk about the healing power of poetry. She will read poetry and share AI-generated art, using words from her poems. She will share evidence of the healing and relaxing effects of reading or listening to poetry.
Her book Regala Healing is an authentic exploration of the human condition that has been described as "timeless songs to see again, feel again, to live again” and a "hypnotic and engaging journey of self-acceptance, self-love and self-transcendence”.
