Healing Spirituality

A healthy mind in a healthy body needs a healthy spiritual life to be a perfect union

At the deepest level all healing is spiritual, because it involves all dimensions of our interior humanity, both that which is known and that which remains a mystery. While various medical practices and therapies help people who need such specific treatment and guidance, most people find today that going on a retreat and taking time out to relax and explore their feelings helps solve personal or work problems and re-balances the body, mind and spirit. There are retreats specially designed as “healing”. These may be based on traditional religious practices or use any number of ancient and modern therapies to achieve relaxation and insight. The goal is to find a unity of self and from there a sense of unity with all life.
