Paul Harrison (1).JPG

Paul Harrison, California, USA

What they’re saying about Paul: “...gifted...creates a safe and organic space to open up.
Definitely did not feel anything but refreshed, clear headed and able to get relief from high pain
levels.” “...a Systemic Dialoguing expert...asking questions, listening to the answers...storytelling
and painting images...guiding you out of the dark, damp cave we all retreat to in times of fear,
insecurity and sadness.”

Presentation: Finding Your Life in the Carpark of Your Destiny

Sometimes you know exactly what you want, how to do it, how to get there, everything you need
to live your dreams, emotionally spiritually and physically. So you pop into the local mall to find
and get your stuff. My job is to help you to relocate the car in the car-park because nothing is more frustrating than knowing where you want to go and thinking you’ve lost the ability to get there. 9 times out of 10 all you need is someone to point you in the right direction to your vehicle of life with all the resources that you’ve put in the trunk. The Willow System was developed to do just that … supply simple tips like where to find your car in the carpark because without the vehicle, the road would feel longer, harder and take too much time.

Val Joy.JPG

Val Joy, California, USA

Some 8 years ago, Valerie left behind a life marked by allergies and pain to begin a healing
journey. With a seemingly chance introduction to the Willow System, she stopped searching and
began learning. Unlike anything she had experienced, its multi-level, non-linear and
individualized approach was deep, effective and efficient. Struck by the opportunity to meld the
techniques with her own passion for supporting and helping people, Val now creates fluid
movement in people Body, Mind and Soul. It changed her life when everyone was telling her
she couldn’t...and can absolutely change yours.

Presentation: Creating Fluid Movement, Body, Mind, and Soul

Meet the WSB and AYM, two Willow System modalities that begin with the body, restoring it to its natural integrity because “when your body can do it, you can do whatever your aspirations are.” Experience how Willow System’s “as well as” and circular approach, combination of western and eastern medical science literally connects you with you again, laying the groundwork for physical and spiritual fitness and creating the reality of your dreams.

Fred Clarke alvarez.jpg

Fred Clark Alvarez, Peru

Fred is a sound healer. He has been studying and working with Peruvian ancestral medicines
and ancient Pre-Hispanic sounds since 2003. This journey started in 1998 through his work with
Wachuma, a sacred power medicine from Peru. He has been working with this medicine with
ancient Peruvian sounds as a profound transformative tool to empower people, to reconnect
again with ourselves, to heal our mind, heart and body. All these years he has been traveling
and living in the jungle and Andes of Peru, learning different healing techniques and meeting
medicine people. Visiting and learning from different ancient temples, mountains, jungles, birds,
lakes and seas to integrate the relation between nature and sounds as healing keys in our
paths. My focus is on accessing and utilizing the healing power of different ancestral sounds
and instruments in ceremonies, rituals and individual therapies for wellness, mediation and
holistic health. The power of sound and music heals in many ways.

Anna Lisa Lloyd.jpg

Anna Lisa Lloyd, Wales

After realizing that there was more to life than just working, I felt something bigger than
myself calling so I decided to do a Vipassana. A year later my body was gyrating,
moving into yoga poses, doing mudras and advanced Taichi with no prior experience. I
felt a loving energy enter my body which filled me with optimism and the ability to move
and unblock subtle energies through healing work. 4 years on and I’ve had huge
releases, massive realizations and magical miracles and synchronicities happen. With
my dream to join HTH in California being one of those very miracles.
