Welcome to Gestalt Pastoral Care
Gestalt Pastoral Care rests on the belief that God's grace is constantly at work in each person. Although we can't predict just how you will be healed, you can expect to be touched in body, mind, spirit, emotions and social/relational context in a process unique to you alone.
Gestalt Pastoral Care is rooted in the Christian ministry of healing, and integrates Gestalt growth work, spiritual companioning and prayer for healing.
We are greatly enriched by the wide diversity of theology and worship styles of our participants. All retreats and training programs of Gestalt Pastoral Care are open and inclusive.
