“It was very informative and inspirational and yes, the most amazing thing happened to me. As I sat down I immediately made a connection with him. I just started crying while I made shukr to Allah for sending this person on my path and I could feel the heat of healing going right through my whole being. It was overwhelming.” These were the words of one of the participants after leaving a workshop with Patrick San Francesco, global master energy healer, earlier this month.The workshop took place at the Freedom Park Community Hall and was hosted by Nead Community Development.Joanie Fredericks, Nead founder, says they have been touched by the warm responses.“Patrick has fallen in love with our community and will be back with us in July. Make sure that you attend the next workshop. You will experience that everything we are talking about is real,” says Fredericks.Fredericks had a personal experience with San Fransesco in July last year and was excited about the opportunity to host him again.“I was sceptical but I went and it was great,” she says.He had helped her heal a pain in her leg that she had not linked to his assistance but made a personal experience of healing after that, which gave her the profound faith in abilities of divine power. It is this that leads to the healing and not laying on of hands, she says.“It is about faith and belief,” she says.Several local healers also attended the event. San Fransesco hails from India and started his journey at the age of four when he prayed for his dying brother to be healed.
