This is the first in a series of healing retreats led by John Blair.  John honors the wisdom of Christianity and Buddhism.  Drawing from his experience as a Counselor, Priest, and Artist, he weaves these strands of tradition together to support inner healing and freedom.

What to expect

This workshop will focus around identifying, acknowledging, and admitting that many of us have been hurt by institutional religion.  These wounds have deeply impacted and challenged our faith as spiritual people.  This workshop will provide the tools to begin healing from the wounds many of us have carried for far too long and often, in silence and by ourselves.  This workshop will include singing, contemplative prayer, a formal presentation on healing and a healing ceremony.  Please come dressed comfortably, with an intention to begin the healing process, and a willingness to allow the Spirit to lead you into a place of wholeness and recovery.John Blair bio
