Trinity Lutheran Church
Healing Touch Spiritual Ministry Classes
“Introduction to Healing Ministry” and “Introduction to Judeo-Christian Anointing”
The Institute of Spiritual Healing and Aromatherapy (ISHA) is located in Knoxville, TN.
ISHA is a provider of continuing education for Nurses, Massage Therapists and Aromatherapists.
Their vision is to help restore healing to Christianity and to the world by providing educational programming to enable students to integrate the spiritual and scriptural aspects of healing ministry, prayer, the laying-on of hands and anointing with essential oils in their faith communities or in their ministry/service settings. And to provide education to enable students to establish private practices in hands-on healing and/or aromatherapy.
ISHA will be offering two healing touch spiritual ministry classes at Trinity Lutheran Church, 213 North Pennsylvania Ave., Mason City:
“Introduction to Judeo-Christian Anointing” will be held at Trinity on Friday, September 30, 2016 from 8:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. This introduction to Judeo-Christian Anointing is a one-day course that explores anointing in our Judeo-Christian story and how we lost it through history. Nine essential oils traditionally used at the time of Christ are introduced for spiritual and physical healing. Anointing with healing oil is then combined with the laying-on of hands and other simple healing techniques to give participants experience in healing and anointing for ministry settings.
“Introduction to Healing Ministry” is a one-day course to be held at Trinity on Saturday, October 1, 2016 from 8:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. The course details the history of healing in Christianity with the opportunity to experience the laying-on of hands. The roles of prayer and belief and developing a healing presence are presented along with guided meditations. This is an inspiring day for all.
