How God Changes You Brain for Healing & Joy is an event that utilizes a model called Gestalt Pastoral Care (GPC) which is a synthesis of Gestalt theory and practice that integrates Christian healing principles. The process is experiential in nature. In this two-option event, the facilitators will incorporate cutting edge research in neuroscience and body therapies that aid healing in an integrated, holistic manner—incorporating mind, body and soul.
OPTION 1 (Thursday Only): If you are curious about the underpinnings of this model and want to further your understanding of how your brain works, the impact of trauma and desire to experience a small taste of the model, but, don’t have the time to commit to the entire long-weekend, then this option is for you.
