St. Andrew’s Healing Touch Group
A healing ministry within the Christian community is an experience of love and compassion for those who are in need of healing of any kind. Just as Jesus healed, so did his apostles, his disciples, and the whole early church. In considering a healing ministry, churches are responding not only to Christ’s mandate to teach and heal, but also to the many needs for healing in their church community.
Healing Touch is a modern day, energy-based therapeutic approach to healing. It uses touch to influence the energy system thus affecting the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual health and healing of the individual. The source of healing energy is from God, and is a gift of the Spirit. When we use touch from the heart, God can use us to serve as a conduit pouring God’s compassionate energies where they are most needed. The goal in Healing Touch is to restore harmony, balance, and wholeness in body, mind, and spirit, enabling the person to heal. Healing Touch complements traditional approaches to health and healing, it is not a substitute for them.
St. Andrew’s Healing Touch Group was commissioned in 2000, after the members had completed Levels I and II in the Naramata Centre Healing Pathway program. Several members have since attended advanced courses provided by Healing Touch Program.
The group meets on the first and third Monday night of every month, except in the summertime, when we do not have scheduled sessions. Anyone is welcome; a one hour session offers a nurturing and loving experience of God’s healing on all levels. Sessions are held in a created sacred space with music and privacy.
To book an appointment, or find out more, please telephone Pat Crozier at 403-782-7243.
