Healing with Divine Energy

with Mary Kretzmann, Director of the Ananda Healing                                Prayer Ministry, and Kent White
Friday, October 5th-Sunday, October 7th, 2018
Wisdom House Retreat Center, Litchfield, CT

What is wholeness? How can we accept
the events of our lives? How can we be at peace? When things are going well, we
may fear that some day our good fortune will end, one way or another . . . . And when we have faced a deep loss, we may have trouble connecting with God’s love for us . . . .
This deeply healing retreat will help you to deal with emotional losses and grief as well as physical illnesses. The program will include:
     ● Effective yogic healing and prayer methods of Yogananda
     ● Techniques for increasing your energy and vitality
     ● Affirmations for changing self-limiting attitudes
     ● Sound and music to adjust physical, mental, and spiritual imbalances that
        lead to disease.

On her teaching trip to New Zealand in March of 2017, Mary found new ways to help her students sense divine healing energy by attuning to the divine light within them. In this seminar we will practice both giving and receiving divine healing energy.

Mary will be assisted by a fellow healer on the Ananda path, Kent White. Mary and Kent have taught Yogananda’s healing techniques together for many years. Kent brings a powerful presence to the healing circles, and he also leads an intriguing demonstration on the power of the aura, and the t​​hings that may increase our magnetism or undermine it.

The retreat will conclude with Sunday Service followed by lunch.

Mary Kretzmann has served as the director of the Ananda Healing Prayer Ministry for nearly 30 years, which has furnished her with a unique opportunity to guide many around the world in techniques such as healing prayers and affirmations, visualizations, partial fasting, and more. Her work over these years has also included a number of “laying on of hands” healing sessions, drawn from the teachings of the great spiritual master Paramhansa Yogananda and of Jesus Christ.  Mary is the author of the recently published A Healer’s Handbook: Channeling the Light of Yogananda and Christ.

Kent White met Swami Kriyananda on March 7, 1976, after the Sunday service he gave at the Meditation Retreat. He moved to Ananda Village with his family in 1979. He was made the director of the then-new healing prayer ministry a few months later and showed a deep attunement to the healing techniques of Paramhansa Yogananda. Kent was ordained as an Ananda minister during that time period. In the early 1990’s he transferred the directorship of the Healing Prayer Ministry to Mary Kretzmann, but he continued to play an important role in co-teaching some healing seminars with mary as well as praying deeply for some emergency prayer concerns, as well as some larger concerns for Ananda in general. Kent participated in two of Ananda’s pilgrimages to the Holy Land, as well as making numerous visits to Ananda Italy. Kent also moved to India for 18 months at Swami Kriyananda’s request to help with the Ananda solar energy project that was starting at that time. During all of this time, he continued to serve through offering healing prayers. He brings this wealth of knowledge, experience and attunement to his healing prayers and spiritual life.
