Healing Pathway
Phase One Training Program at Islington United
Register Now: Course - May 4 & 5, 2018


Healing Pathway Phase One Training Program will be hosted by Islington United Church as all-day sessions on Friday, May 4 and Saturday, May 5, 2018. You may obtain the brochure and registration form for this course by clicking here.

The Healing Pathway Training Program enables people to develop the gifts and skills of healing within the Christian tradition, and fosters the development of healing ministries in their local congregation and for self-care. Practitioners are trained to be a heart-centred, loving presence, and to use techniques in an intentional manner to facilitate and support the healing process of an individual, for physical, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual well-being. Healing sessions do not always involve physical contact between the practitioner and the receiver; the practitioner may simply work in the bio-energy field around the body. Healing Pathway training has four phases. Each phase is a prerequisite to the next.

Every year there are a number of training workshops throughout Ontario that offer practitioners of Healing Pathway an opportunity to be in community with others and to hone their Healing Pathway practice. Visit the Upcoming Courses Page to find workshops near you by clicking here.

The Healing Pathway Program is
 an energy-based approach to healing,
sanctioned by the United Church of Canada.

So although it is a year away it is time to get looking at calendars.
