The Grief Small Group (Thursday)
Join us for a Healing Place Event
We all have had some traumatic experience(s) somewhere in our growth that tend to run our lives. The emotions that we deem too scary or embarrassing don't just go away. Some people try to forget about them through behaviors that make things worse. It is called "pain killing". We all can attest to the destructive impact of drugs or alcohol as "pain killing" but what about, overeating, gambling, or shopping therapy.
The Healing Place is committed to your wholeness and wellbeing, offering several life-changing small group opportunities through an online platform. Our online small groups allow us to provide a safe and sacred space for healing to people across the world using Zoom.
With the advances of technology, you will be able to participate regardless of where you reside or the time zone you live in. You will be amazed at how the Holy Spirit will meet you and your group in a wonderful encounter of love and grace.
Our small groups are facilitated by caregivers trained in formational prayer and our spiritual direction group is led by a trained spiritual director. We invited you to register today for one of the small groups we will offer beginning the first week of March 2021!
the registration fee for this group is $35.00. The participation fee is $25.00 per week. Payment options include Check, Credit Card, and Cash App.
