Opening to Grace Virtual Retreat

“Life changing—transformative”

Saturday, April 10, 2021
9:00 AM – 3:30 PM

Gestalt Pastoral CareLed by Alexandra MacCracken,
Gestalt Pastoral Care Minister and Trainer

An Opening to Grace Retreat allows you a time to let go, let down, rest, and draw strength from the gathered group (and allow others to pray for your healing). You can expect Alexandra to employ both spiritual and gestalt insights as you work with your body, emotions and spirit for your greater wellness.

Neuroscience now shows that we hold unresolved trauma in our bodies, and if we have compassionate and wise witnesses and guidance we can actually heal and “detoxify” trauma, leading to more personal freedom and joy. Gestalt Pastoral Care (GPC) has now been scientifically validated and proven as an effective way to deal with anxiety, depression, and trauma.

Sounds a little scary? Sign up as an Observer/Intercessor, a sideline role that prays in support for the worker and receives healing, too.

GPC is gentle and respectful, no one has to say or do anything they don’t want to do. Register online HERE for your next step in your wholeness transformation.

Space is limited and participation will be on a first come, first served basis.

  • Participant: $75 - Receives a full session of discovery with Alexandra MacCracken.
  • Observer/Intercessor: $50 - Prays for those working, and receives benefits as well.
