Spa of Colonial Williamsburg hosts "Truth Heals" self-improvement workshop at Woodlands Conference Center March 27

The Spa of Colonial Williamsburg hosts health and wellness author Deborah King Friday, March 27 at 6 p.m. at the Williamsburg Woodlands Conference Center, 119 Visitor Center Drive in Williamsburg. King will lead a healing and self-improvement workshop and guide audience members to an intensified level of awareness of their own truths. King will also sign copies of her book, “Truth Heals: What You Hide Can Hurt You” in which she probes the powerful impact the truth has on the emotional and physical well being of people facing the issues encountered in modern life.

King examines the theory that denial or suppression of the truth manifests as ill health, dysfunctional relationships or financial problems. As a young attorney and hotel developer, King suffered from numerous emotional and medical problems, culminating with cancer in her twenties. Her amazing recovery led her to leave the corporate world for the alternative medical field, where she studied ancient and modern healing systems and ultimately developed a powerful energy healing technique of her own.

King is an attorney and television commentator who has appeared on CNN and Fox News and hosts her own radio program. She addresses issues of physical disease, relationships, aging, addiction, depression, weight control, violence and other issues of contemporary society.

The Spa of Colonial Williamsburg has hosted several health and wellness classes in keeping with its philosophy that wellness is a continuum that must be nurtured. Cost for the workshop is $10 per person, or $15 per couple, including friends who attend together, and is payable at the door the day of the event. Call 757-220-7720 for reservation or more information.
