Our Story

  • 1995

    The Vision

    William Bezmen, Judith Grant, Patricia Madigan Stringham and Samantha Gray conceptualized a center where people could experience a truly integrative approach to healing and wellness. The vision unfolded during countless hours of meditation, collaboration and prayer. It was during this time that they “saw” a place where many would experience personal growth and discover their own inner wisdom and beauty. The first Logo was created and our mission statement put into action.

    Powerful Concepts Realized

    In April, William, Patricia and Judith first opened Pathways to Health in Nesconset, NY and the vision became a reality. In that first year they jointly created over 12 empowering classes and certification courses. Spirit Journey became the foundation class and AN-RA energy based healing was introduced. Pathways Of Love & Light ( a healing multi-faith ministry est. 1993 by William Bezmen ) also grew and they began an ordination tract with their first ministers, Patricia Stringham, Ed Stringham and Judith Grant. The Celebration Of Light began that year honoring the Light in every Faith. It has continue to be celebrated every year on the second Friday of December. On the second Friday of every month, open AN-RA healings were held and are still held today in order to be of service to the community at no cost, consistently for over 24 years.

    A Community Grows

    The student and client base grew along with the ministry. William, Patricia and Judith continued to create 15 new classes and services. Many students became certified in AN-RA healing, Intuitive Counseling, and Clinical Hypnotherapy. Inner Child Healing and Past Life Regression were being well attended. Added to their classes was mediation for children and the Pathways family expanded with students who became teachers. It was the year that they began and still continue to have, an annual Healers Retreat in the Fall where the AN-RA healers would get away and learn new healing techniques. The one on one client base continued to grow and lives continued to change.

  • 1998

    Expansion & New Challenges

    There was an expansion of services so they began to look for another location. Patricia was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma during this time and into 1999 she continued to teach and create classes throughout her chemotherapy, multiple fractures, and bone marrow transplant. She lived upstate by Rochester, NY but still made her way to Long Island every month and was a source of great love and inspiration.


  • 1999

    A New Home, A New Angel

    Pathways was guided to a new location in Mt.Sinai, NY and converted a home on 3 acres as the healing center. More teachers were certified and ministers were ordained during that year. Pathways Healers retreat was held in the beginning of October and Patricia taught what was to be her last class with all of the healers surrounding her in love. They moved Pathways into that location on October 31st, 1999. On December 10th, 1999 Patricia Madigan Stringham transitioned into the Light with her husband, children and William and Judith at her side. She never was able to come to the new location but her teachings and love are with the center and it’s mission always.

    Publishing Our Message

    Pathways To Health had become home to so many clients and students at the Mt. Sinai, NY location. The house and grounds were beautiful and gave rise to a peaceful and sacred space of education, treatments and healings. In 2002, Ed Stringham, William and Judith along with others created a book of transcribed messages that had been channeled through the years. The book, Magdalene’s Timeless Testament, was published. The introduction and forward tells the story of what brought them together in 1995.

    2000 - 2003

  • 2003 - 2018

    A Chain Reaction of Healers

    Since Pathways was first opened, thousands of healings and love had been given and received. With a dream fulfilled and countless students, now teachers and healers began spreading love and light in their own practices and communities. Over 20 ministers had been ordained during these years and monthly Sunday Spiritual Services began on the first Sunday of each month. Added to the Pathways familiy were the canine “healers”. Lancelot, Samson, Avatar and LaKotah and had brought their unconditional love to Pathways. During these years a Sweat Lodge was built in honor of Native American tradition. It was used for 4 years until an ice storm leveled it. In that same area a labyrinth was constructed and is still in use today.

  • 2018 - 2019

    New Integrative Approaches to Healing

    Once again, following inner guidance, another arm of Pathways To Health began. Neurofeedback was launched in September of 2018 and this division was renamed Neuropathways to reflect the foundation. It is able to help adolescents and adults with ADD/ADHD, PTSD, anxiety, depression, OCD, insomnia, Post Concussion Syndrome, migraines, improve memory and much more. Added to the staff are highly educated techs and counselors to care for all clients as Pathways continues to offer therapy, classes, certifications and overall self empowerment they had visioned. Other services like acupuncture also add to a variety of healing modalities.

    2018 - 2019

  • 2019 - Current

    A New, Expanded Location

    Having outgrown the Mt.Sinai, NY location, Pathways To Health will have a new home in Miller Place with the capacity for more services and the ability to continue to provide care and education for those seeking to heal or expand their gifts and potential.  Although the location is changed, the vision and dream of William, Patricia and Judith will continue to unfold. The basic foundation classes and principles will always be in place and the goal is to create that same sacred space where so many have found peace, healing and transformation.
