I’m not sure about you, but these days it is difficult for me to be gentle… it is hard to live...
Helena de la Paz is a gifted guide. Her unique life experience has given her a profound sense of compassion for her fellow human beings. She sees the divine within everyone and treats every person with dignity and respect. She goes beyond the superficial and connects with diverse people on a deeper level. She has shown me how you can take ownership of your life while at the same time accepting and healing your fears, flaws and weaknesses. Healing through love isn't just a catchphrase- it's what she does! Helena's gentleness and strength are contagious. Her words and example have touched my life and changed the way I relate to myself and others. If you're struggling with doubt, self-criticism, or any painful experience, I would absolutely recommend having a talk with Helena.

Helena came into my life just when I needed a support connection. She is genuine through and through- both deeply caring and skilled. She was never judgmental, always completely present, always prepared. I'm grateful for our time together and look forward to continuing.

I had the privilege of being part of a support group that Helena led. I was continually impressed by Helena's ability to foster an atmosphere that encouraged heartfelt meaningful sharing. She struck a wonderful balance between leading the group through stractured exercises and creating spaces for reflection and meditation. Throughout the group sessions, Helena was very warm and welcoming, which helped us feel comfortable talking about our struggles and hopes. Her calming presence and skillful facilitation created a genuine sense of community that was healing and even inspirational.

Helena is a "compassionate warrior" pursuing a vision of love, inclusion, and healing community. Under her leadership our group was able to develop an extraordinary strong bond and sense of cohesion within a very short period of time. The atmosphere of acceptance and compassion in the group setting promotes a level of openness and sharing that is profoundly healing.
Helena has a calming, centering effect on individuals as well as groups. She actively leads when needed and quietly leads when that is needed as well. When she identifies passions and talents in others she lets them explore those as well. My experience with Love Is Healer and Helena has been extraordinary.

Helena’s “Love is Healer” is an insightful, well-thought out description of how everything in our lives was created "with, by, through and because of Love". The answer to our personal struggles and humanity’s struggles lies in the complete understanding of Love’s primacy in this world. This understanding allows us the freedom to see that all things are possible. Freedom in Love.
Helena’s bringing together of diverse faith traditions (as seen in quotes from biblical scripture to existential thought and eastern faiths) shows her courage and understanding of ideas that do indeed have value outside of our western conception of what is true.
Further, her desire for social justice is her desire to see the value in all individuals, regardless of creed, culture or socioeconomic status. She writes, “When you give that water bottle to someone in need, look them in the eyes.”
These sparks of hope based on Love are interspersed throughout this abbreviated text and I look forward to reading more of her works.
