Worldwide Healing Meditation
Whether you are part of a community event, or simply honoring Healing Touch on this day, consider joining with thousands of Healing Touch providers around the globe in a world healing meditation.
We start by grounding and centering ourselves and connecting with our own heart. Then we expand this heart centered energy to fill and hold all beings on this planet in a space of wholeness and healing. We end by releasing the outcome and disconnecting. Add your own inspiration, images, and content to this meditation to make it sacred or meaningful for you. Official meditation time is noon (your time) on March 6th, but you can participate at any time on that day.
Community Building Event for Healing Touch Providers
This is a great opportunity to connect with other Healing Touch providers in your area. Below is a list of ideas that can enhance your event. Choose those that match the size and type of group you are expecting.
- Invite all Healing Touch providers that you know of in your community. Look on our website for Certified Healing Touch Practitioners that you might not be aware of.
- Offer food, social time, and a time for sharing as a group.
