The Topics:

These Health professionals along with their families gather each year to be refreshed and have fellowship with each other and to receive new insights and tools to apply to their ministry in Healthcare.

They believe that every one of us has experienced trauma in the course of our lives whether it is in childhood or in the framework of their Medical Practices. These traumas can deeply impact them and affect their relationship with their patients

The weekend will provide help for them to get help themselves

and give them new tools to deal with traumas and resolve them in better ways in their Medical practices on a daily basis.

They are looking forward to seeing one another and learning how to experience a life characterized by resolving trauma and experiencing freedom and healing.

They have invited a Christian Psychologist, Dr. Reinhard Pichler, to speak on the effects of Trauma on Doctors and Healthcare Professionals and how they can be reconciled to God in this process.

Our part is to speak on practical ways to resolve trauma on the journey to healing and wholeness.  We will speak on the topics of invisible influences affecting us, how to overcome the “Victim Spirit and Mindset”, the effects of spiritual, emotional and physical trauma and becoming synchronized in our hearts to Jesus Christ through “Immanuel Moments” and the “Heart Sync Model of Ministry”.

Seminar On Quantum Healing With Essential Oils in Wiener Neustadt With Dr. Sharnael Wolverton From Swiftfire Ministries:

Dr. Sharnael Wolverton, ND

Dr. Sharnael Wolverton, Doctor of Naturopathy, from Denham Springs, Louisiana will give a Seminar in Wiener Neustadt, Austria, on “The Healing Property of Essential Oils and Quantumenergetics.”

The Seminar will be held on Friday, May 15th from 5:00 PM – 9:00 PM at the Erloesungskirche, Brunnerstrasse 5-7, 2700 Wiener Neustadt, Austria.

As a college student Sharnael studied Bible and theology and had many spiritual experiences. She pursued her interest in healing through Bible and experience. According to modern research the historical record of using essential oils is justified as we explore their chemical makeup and people use them personally.

In modern times naturopathy has rediscovered the ancient art of applying these oils. They show evidence of cleansing for body and soul, of restoration of bodily functions and the brain, and of energizing spirit and soul. Dr. Wolverton remains in contact with the results of scientific research and has many experience with their use in naturopathic methods. Even animals profit by application of the essential oils.

We look forward to how God will reach people, who know the Lord already and those, who He is calling to be healed by His love, grace and truth. We look forward to all God has planned for this Seminar Evening.
