Deepening Your Healing/Energetic Presence Through Prayer
January 29-31, 2021 - Virtual
As we sit amidst the swirling energies of the Coronavirus, it might be a good time to do a virtual workshop. From a healing presence perspective, something has changed and it's not magic. It is energy and our attuning to the deep creative knowing deep inside to come to life we will deeply explore using our energetic self as the prayer.
A prayer is typically viewed as a solemn request for help or expression of gratitude addressed to God, Spirit, or an object of worship. It can also be as simple as an earnest hope or wish such as "I'll say a prayer for him or her." These are all forms of doing by saying the request often found in the various forms of religious prayers. A more formal process of prayer is to invoke, intercede, or devote1.
All three of these prayers can create moments of a clear intention and the absolute power of being fully present. If praying from fear or pain, one’s yearning can dilute the intent unless it is clearly owned as part of the prayer. Often, fear underlies these prayers.
Neville Goddard (1948) shifts the understanding of prayers to a state of being. He notes “the ceremonies that are customarily used in prayer are mere superstitions and have been invented to give prayer an air of solemnity. They attribute the results obtained to the ceremonies and mistake the spoken letter for the spirit.” In such cases, it is not the prayers that are deceiving, it is the practice of doing the prayers without being the prayers. The essence of prayer is faith; but faith must be permeated with presence. Presence is the active quality which most prayers do not possess. Prayers are effective when one is being the prayer as if it has already been answered. Prayers work because of the heartfelt expressions of the prayer are sent into the universe. Yet, we remain attached to the belief that some higher power must intervene without recognizing that we must open the door for such higher energies by accepting our own Being.
What to expect
In this workshop, we will explore prayer as a means of being, including how to use meditation stones to focus your healing presence.
Who Should Come?
All interested in deepening your understanding and practice of prayers.
What to Bring
This is at your home virtual workshop, so make yourself comfy. We will meditate, so, have any rocks or crystals that support your meditations. A journal notebook is encouraged.
We will be virtual. So, if you have not done a virtual workshop, often called webinars, here’s some helpful information. Prior to our workshop, go to https://Zoom.com and open a free account and install it on your computer. Make sure your computer has a camera. It is helpful but not needed that you have a headset with a microphone on it (like your cell phone headset). It cancels noise at home.

The workshop will be done in four segments of 3, maybe 4 hours, with frequent breaks as you remind me of the need. The tentative schedule is as follows:
- Friday 12-4PM CST (1-5 PM EST)
- Saturday 9-12 and 1-5PM CST (10-1 and 2-6PM EST)
- Sunday 9-1 CST (10-2 EST)
Each segment will have a guided meditation, some teaching, an exercise, and processing. This structure has worked well for me and shortly after we get comfortable, you will find that it can be and interesting and insightful experience.
The fee for the workshop is $345. This includes materials shipped to your home. Class size is limited to 21.
For those that attend or pay and cannot attend, we will provide access to the recorded sessions the week following the workshop.

1Most prayers have a cross-over between invocation, intercession, and devotion to one degree or another. The Lord’s Prayer invokes, asks for intercession, and closes with devotion.
