Are you Healing, Healed or Healer? - panel

San Miguel is a community filled with healers and healing methods. The effect and intent within the idea "being whole"or "healthy" is multidimensional. Healing — What is it? How does it happen? Where? When? Who gets to heal and who gets healed? What heals?Are there even deeper, more effective ways healing can happen? Are there spiritual dimensions that can be explored? A two-hour introductory panel discussion is designed to pose questions and gauge interest in this topic. We are all of the same source, and we all see "it" a bit differently. Join us for shared discovery and new insights.

Panel Participants

Laura R. Torres is titled in Cultural Sciences by the University of the Cloister of Sor Juana Inez de la Cruz in Mexico City. In private consultations she uses her extensive academic tools — philosophy, hermeneutics, epistemology — in conjunction with her work as an Aj'quij, a Mayan spiritual guide — a counter and interpreter of Mayan sacred time. She applies ancient wisdom to find meaning in modern life.
Bishop William O. Gregg is the current parish rector at St. Paul's Anglican Church in San Miguel de Allende. An interesting and diverse theologian, he studied at the Episcopal Divinity School in Cambridge, MA, and has a doctorate in theology from Notre Dame. He served as Bishop of Eastern Oregon, and came to San Miguel after retiring as Assistant Bishop of North Carolina.

Susan J. Cobb, C. S., was in the public healing practice of Christian Science in Texas and California for twenty years. She was a member of the public speakers bureau for The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, and was a chaplain in California jails and prisons. She is author of the spiritual memoir Virgin Territory: How I Found My Inner Guadalupe.

Monitor - Mary Jane Miller is a 40-year resident artist and teacher in San Miguel, best known for the icons she creates, including the iconostasis "Dialogue for World Peace," representing 5,000 years of spirituality and human history spanning seven continents. Her enthusiasm is as vibrant as the colors she paints with when she shares what she has learned from 25 years of Byzantine studies about worship, meditation, and creating sacred images and spaces.

The meeting is free and open to the public, but advance reservations are a good idea.
