Fr. Bill will use Scripture, stories (personal and otherwise), poetry, mantras, and music to provide four talks and facilitate discussions on Inner Healing. Topics will include:
- A discussion of inner healing – getting to a space of gratefulness and peace even though experiencing physical, emotional, and spiritual crosses.
- Dealing with afflictive feelings (fear, shame, guilt, anger, resentment, etc.)
- Prayer and meditation, including a short experience of Body/Breath Prayer-which is an integration of centering prayer and an Anthony De Mello, S. J. exercise.
