A New Order of Healing:
"Healing Through Pain" at 7:00 pm

Pain is a natural signal, a beacon from our body telling us something is amiss. What lies underneath our pain is fodder for healing. Settling into and allowing our pain expression helps us to unravel it and begin the true healing process. Through our connection with our discomfort we begin the process of transformation.
