EnLIGHTenment Series — The Wounded Healer: Thoughts on Contemplative Healing — Wednesday, July 31, 2024, 5:30pm — 8:30pm

The Wounded Healer: Thoughts on Contemplative Healing

The Wounded Healer archetype is a concept coined by Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung. It suggests that healers, often those who have experienced trauma themselves, possess unique curative power for others. 

Acknowledging there is a Wounded Healer in all of us, we will review contemplative teachings that explore the concept of trauma healing and spiritual wholeness as seen through James Finley’s seven step process.  And finally look to aspects of contemplative action and offering support to others in need of healing as wounded healers in our world.  

This event will also be available on zoom. The zoom information will be emailed out two days before the event to the zoom attendees.

About the Presenter

Terry Endres entered 12-step recovery in October 2002.  In 2005, he was introduced to Centering Prayer through the St. Louis 12-step Centering Prayer retreats and books by Thomas Keating and other mystical teachers.  His twice daily, 20-minute sitting practice began in November 2014.  

Terry recently completed Richard Rohr’s two-year Living School program is excited to deepen his understanding of the wisdom of the vast world of mystical teachings and 12-step recovery.  And to pass on enthusiasm to others as part of the Living School’s charge to practice contemplation AND action.
