Robert McIlwain


Labor Day Weekend
Saturday August 30 & Sunday August 31

I will be offering two workshops at Sober in the Sun in Spencer, MA. 

Saturday, August 30, at 2 pm:

Experiencing God's Love and Mercy

       We need only to ask in our hearts to receive God's love and mercy ~ it is given. God is in the breath we breathe. As we seek God's presence, and ask God's intervention with the hardest places in our hearts, we become open to receiving the grace and tenderness of God's love and mercy. Our lives heal profoundly as we seek to live in deepening communion with God in everyday life.

       This workshop will combine talk with meditation, prayer, sharing, and sacred song. Bring your desire to be in love with God, and to ask God to heal the parts of yourself that may have become hardened, critical, disillusioned, or lacking hope - so that through God's love and mercy, you may find softness and forgiveness in your heart, and renewed hope and trust in life.

Sunday, August 31 at 11:30 am:

God's Love and Healing Touch

       God's Love is at the heart of all healing. Every person has the capacity to participate in offering healing to others - through touch, words, gestures, and through being present with another person. This workshop is intended to offer people the opportunity to experience qualities of healing touch with God at the center. It can be an time to discover some of the gifts of your own capacity offer healing touch to others, through the love in your heart and your desire to be of service. It is also a chance to allow another person to offer to you safe, guided, simple touch, with God's Love at the center ~ so that you may experience some quality of healing, awareness, learning, comfort, or peace.

       The workshop will include a talk, meditation, breath/body awareness, guidance in basic principles healing touch, and opportunities to give and to receive healing touch. No experience is necessary - simply bring your willingness to learn, and your desire to give and receive.
