Creating Abundance in an Impoverished World
We are proud to have Prabha Dwabha coming from India as a guest speaker. Through partial proceeds from our event, we will send young women to Rishikesh, India to work in Ramana’s Garden Orphanage and learn firsthand the importance of work for the empowerment of women worldwide.
Director of Ramana’s Garden, Rishikesh, India, Prabha formed Ramana’s Garden as a Home for Destitute Children as a result of her spiritual practice on the banks of the River Ganga.
She has created a small grassroots Rural Development Assistance Project dedicated to the Empowerment of Women and Children living in remote mountains, below poverty-lines, in the villages of the Garhwal, Uttaranchal, and Rishikesh, India.
Prabhavati Dwabha has been working in this area for the last 19 years and is happy to have provided assistance to more than 1,800 children in 68 villages and medical assistance to the entire village communities of 12,000.
In 1994 – after living in India for 20 years –she was keenly aware of the many children who were living at risk of death, starvation, abuse, child labor, and child prostitution and this was increasing daily. Prabha felt that the only solution to the vicious cycle of poverty and abuse that was entrapping thousands of women and children was to provide them with a loving home, proper nutrition, quality education, and vocational training. Her first attempts to help were made through governmental agencies and she found it was impossible to get the funds directly to the people in need. It was then that she started her campaign to seek the help of others.
Prabha’s vision is that every child regardless of caste, creed, or social-economic background will have the right to quality education, proper nutrition, and primary healthcare. It is her primary intention to help in the abolishment of the caste system though providing the highest levels of education possible free of cost to the lowest castes in India. It is her further intention to empower women through literacy and vocational training so that they can generate their own income and thereby gain power in their own households and communities…

Dr. Sue Morter
Dr. Sue Morter has been speaking, teaching and training for the past 20 years both nationwide and abroad on the concepts of user-friendly Quantum Physics, Bio-Energetic, and their application to evolving Human Consciousness. She illuminates how old belief systems that were established early on in our lives often contribute to habits and dynamics that interfere with our lives today. By understanding the relationship between human energy fields, our conscious thoughts, and our subconscious memory, audiences begin to see how change is a natural flow and a Universal Law. She shows us how we self-sabotage but more importantly, how we can end this cycle and become again, who we really are.
Dr. Sue also shares concepts of removing interference in the nervous system through a technique developed by her father; Dr M.T. Morter, Jr. called Bio-Energetic Synchronization Technique (B.E.S.T.). Living the very ideas she speaks of, she has never taken a prescription medication for an ailment of any kind and loves sharing the revitalizing viewpoint that we are whole and complete as we are and need only to learn how to utilize the innate and natural abilities to heal and to manifest our lives as we desire. As part of her mission to spread this message of conscious healing, she founded and heads Morter Health Center, a multi-doctor wellness center and chiropractic clinic in Carmel, Indiana, since 1986.
Dr. Sue has been called "today's messenger with tomorrow's message" and is known for her high impact energy, coupled with extraordinarily deep, guided mediations which end with an unforgettable, movement oriented and tribal integrative finale. Big fun for big transformation.
