A 4-hour online, interactive, real-time experience of inner healing. Centered on the diamond within, our Imago Dei, we will explore and apply concepts, tools, and processes found to facilitate inner healing and transformation.

This half-day experiential addresses the underlying premises and processes of inner healing. Additionally, participants have the opportunity to identify and heal their shame. The emphasis will be on participation as well as learning tools to apply to real life.

The experiential is open to anyone interested in receiving inner healing and those curious about the Imago Dei approach, along with practitioners interested in continuing their Inner Healing education with the 8-week course and future courses. The half-day experiential workshop can also help a practitioner discern a call to inner healing.

Deeply rooted in and dedicated to Trinitarian principles, the ministry’s purpose is to help people everywhere engage in a Christ-centered healing process that transforms relationships with God, self, and others. Her greatest passion is to accompany people in the journey of discovering who they are in their Imago Dei (image of God).
With training as a counselor, spiritual director, and in the work of inner healing prayer, Katie combines the three disciplines to help guide people through the layers of false self and shame in order to bring about the integration of the whole person.
