Beads of Healing: Using Prayer Beads to Heal from Pain and Trauma

Sat Noon | Healing Arts

Kristen E. Vincent

We all have pain in our lives, to one degree or another. In addition to healing the body and mind, healing from pain and trauma must include healing our spirit. We may have questions for God, feelings we need to share with God, and a story we need God to hear. Prayer beads can offer a safe space in which to speak our truth and begin to heal our spirit. Join us as we consider the steps towards spiritual healing and wholeness using this ancient prayer practice.
