Summer Class and Healing Wednesdays

Cancelled until further notice. 

For the second year, the Oak Park Church of Religious Science is offering eight weeks of Healing Wednesdays this summer. 

Join us for a whole afternoon of Healing: from noon to 1pm., Rev. Vilma Torres will be available for spiritual mind treatments, enjoy your sack lunch from 1pm to 1:30pm, then from 1:30pm to 3pm Janice Newman will teach a new workshop called "Emotional Healing". This is Part 2 of the "Permanent Healing" course that was taught last summer.

Janice will explain the interconnectedness between your physical state and what your emotional, psychological, and spiritual health reveals. How unresolved emotional and psychological issues can affect your physical health. How feelings and thoughts are linked to specific parts of the body, and how you can take steps to heal your body with your mind.

Janice will be using the book: "Your Body Speaks Your Mind", by Deb Shapiro. Understand your body's "language of symptoms" and increase your potential for healing. The book will be available at our bookstore.

Please join us for an afternoon of fun and camaraderie while healing mind and body. This program is open for all to attend at any time.
