Spiritual Direction/Retreat Director

Spiritual Direction is a meaningful way for persons of any tradition to tend to their spiritual care. A spiritual director supports and encourages one to draw closer to their source of divine. When:
*Discerning through difficult decisions
*Sharing losses , disappointments, and inner confusion.
*When your restlessness calls you to search for something deeper
*Spiritual Direction is non judging and confidential.
Retreats:
*Women have the great honor of nurturing family, friends, work, and community. So when it is time to nourish their spirit, women's retreats are one venue that can assist them to reflect, restore, and renew their body, mind, and spirit, with other women in friendship.
*Each retreat has specific goals:
*Going deeper for who we really are.
*Chakras the center of our energetic compass for health and wellness.
*Quiet and reflective time to journal, discovering your creative prayer path.

Healing Touch (HT) and HT Spiritual Ministry

Healing Touch was founded by Janet Mentgen RN, in 1989 and is now an international program.
*Healing touch is compassionate energy therapy in which practitioners use their hands in a loving and intentional way. The touch is light and gentle and sometimes near the body but not stationary. Healing touch helps to clear, balance, and energize the human energy system. This system supports healing of the body, mind, and spirit.
*Healing touch spiritual ministry founded by Linda Smith RN, uses healing touch techniques along with prayer, anointing with oils taught through our Judeo/Christian traditions.
