Dan Cleary: Living with Pain ~ Loving Your Crazy Cousin

Pain serves us and saves us and yet at times it seems to try to destroy us. What if… painful signals announcing nothing we don’t already know, were like our crazy cousin Earl? What if… we were to better understand our relationship and find unconditional love?

Chronic pain happens. It is simply what is. How do we live satisfying lives when chronic pain comes to visit? Join Dan Cleary and discover ways to shift the relationship with painful signals in your own life and the life of your client. Dan came to hypnosis with chronic pain and discovered ways of shifting the perception of painful signals, recapture a sense of control in life and celebrate the everyday nothings that are everything to us all.
