The 3rd ALA Conference on Light & Health was a great success earlier this month. Held at the Shangri-La in Cairns city centre, the event was truly a tropical retreat. For those travelling from wintery southern states, and also for our international speakers and guests, Far North Queensland was exactly the right choice.
Presentations covered a wide range of topics, with a keynote lecture given by Rasmus Gaupp-Berghausen from Austria, and the Closing Presentation by Dr Susan Jamieson from Hong Kong. Other speakers included Moira Aberdeen and Janice Hill (New Zealand), Jan van der Est (the Netherlands), Vanessa Cisneros (USA) and speakers from Australia: Tricia Sharkey and Vicki Engeham, and Billie Diamond – and her friends! And not forgetting Wilma Guldenaar, who led our group in Qigong each morning. A huge THANK YOU to everyone who joined us, from near and far (and farther!) in making the conference the success that it was!
We hosted approximately 70 attendees from Australia and New Zealand (which is our ALA base) and also a number of international guests (presenters and exhibitors). We were thrilled that so many local folk from Cairns and surrounding areas were able to join us. Word is certainly spreading about the potential light and colour to heal and how they can contribute to health and well being. It was noted that for half the attendees at the event, it was their first ALA conference! We’re sure it won’t be their last 😉
