Seminars & Workshops

Heart Tones™ Offers Three Life-Empowering Seminars/Workshops presented by Gloria Thomas Anderson, PhD, LMSW

Advance Care Planning & Healthcare Decision-Making on End-of-Life Issues

This interactive seminar equips participants with needful information to take control of their own lives in healthcare decision-making matters. Did you know that African-Americans have the highest chronic illness rates and mortality rates in the U.S., although they only make up 13% of the total population? Many people of color do not trust in the healthcare system due to historical disparities and unfair treatment. The Let’s Talk About It workshop provides an opportunity to explore various options in individual and family advance care planning. The African American Spiritual and Ethical Guide to End-of-Life Care booklet is also included as a resource for participants in this workshop. The booklet has a free sample Healthcare Directive inside and helpful information to begin the process. This is an excellent educational event for faith-based organizations and churches. The workshop can also be customized to provide outreach training for professionals who work with African American communities, such as hospices, social service agencies, and healthcare providers.

Five (5) Healing Steps for the Grieving Heart

Everyone experiences loss in life. Whenever someone or something you love is no longer present in your life, you will grieve. No two people grieve exactly the same. This interactive workshop provides personal action steps one can take to begin and further their healing journey. Every meaningful loss changes us in some way that impacts our physical, mental, social, and spiritual self. The workshop’s spiritually directed focus includes Scriptural passages and healing prayer. Following the five (5) G.R.A.C.E. personal action steps can be a helpful and encouraging supportive resource for grieving seasons in life. A personal, companion workbook/journal is also available for participants to use at their own pace.

Seven (7) Principles to Know to Discover and Uncover Your God-given Purpose

Many women find themselves examining their lives by asking the question, “Why am I here?” Discovering and uncovering God’s ordained purpose can help to answer that question. Regardless of the titles you wear—wife, mother, daughter, employee, friend, significant other—these, or any other labels, do not necessarily define who you are. This self-empowering workshop covers seven (7) important principles you will want to know as you realize and walk in your divine purpose. A copy of the Passion for Your Purpose book and 7 Principles Purpose Planning Guide are included as a bonus for each participant who wants to go deeper using Scriptures to guide their purpose journey. This is an excellent workshop for personal growth and development. Great for women’s conferences and faith-based events.
