and a breakthrough in
was one of the Group
Leaders in the last Velocity seminar in
Charlotte, those people that
were special partners of our seminar leader, Doug McVadon. It is the
partnership that sees to it that the rest of us in the seminar actually
have the support that we need as we work through our own humanity and
still have the promise of the seminar be fulfilled.
Our last session of the Velocity
seminar happened to be on the horrific September 11, 2001. Even though
Shelli and Roger had to drive one and half hours each way to get to the
seminar and back, they were there and contributed to others throughout
Finding the time I didn't have.
Hi, I am
Shelli Cannon-Hill. I am a wife, mother and Family Practice physician.
My husband, Roger, is also a Family Practice physician, and we have two
wonderful daughters, Stephanie and Shannon, who are 7 and 5 years old.
This year I started practicing part time so I could devote more time to
my family before they grow up. This has been much more enjoyable, but a
lot more busy (if that were possible). In my "free" time I
enjoy biking, outdoor activities and reading.
My husband and I took the Landmark Forum in February of 2001. We have
also participated together in the Advanced Course and the Velocity
Seminar. My brother and sister-in-law were the ones that introduced us
to Landmark. It took them 3 years to convince me to take
Landmark Forum. I was curious about the program, but could not see how I
could work in a seminar of three days and one evening into my schedule.
The hours seemed so long.
Now that I have done the course I can not
believe I waited so long! The relationships in my life are so much
deeper. I realized through the Landmark Forum that I was keeping most of
the people in my life at a distance and that cost me having rewarding
relationships and friendships. Since the Landmark Forum I have the
possibility of being intimate in my relationships. I now see my family,
friends and colleagues in a whole new way; it is very satisfying.
In the other Landmark
Education courses that I have taken I have found a new
confidence in being with people. It is easy to share my experiences with
other people both in the courses I am taking and with the people I come
into contact with everyday. The people I have met in the Landmark
courses are amazing people. I have found a support system that is
I am committed to making this education available to all of my friends
and all the people in my work place. In the future I may not have to
travel one and half hours to a Landmark seminar.
