Exploring and Experiencing Our Spiritual Nature, a Journey to Wholeness, will provide and opportunity to expand your awareness as it invites you to go within to explore and experience Spirit. Whether you are in a healing profession or not, you are invited. This retreat will be facilitated by Wanda Barboza, Certified Healing Touch Practitioner, Reiki Master, and Certified Energy Medicine Practitioner/Specialist.
Often, those who are lead to various healing professions (social workers, energy-based complementary therapists, massage therapists, nurses, care-givers, etc.), have questions and wonder about the spiritual nature of what we do, or the many spiritual experiences stemming from that work. We often desire words to express what happens. We want to be able to discern and voice what our hearts know, but our minds resist, not only to ourselves, but also to others. We need to nurture our own spirit and the deeply spiritual aspects of what we do.
With that in mind, the purpose of this retreat is two-fold:
- explore our spiritual nature in an open space, discussing our thoughts, beliefs and experiences in a non-judgmental, loving atmosphere where there is no right or wrong
- experience our spiritual nature through prayer, guided meditation, vocalizing thoughts, song, movement, visualization, and energy-based techniques

I have been practicing energy-based complementary therapies since 1995. I am formally trained in healing Touch, Reiki, and Transform Your Life Through Energy Medicine. I live in Limerick, Maine. In addition to a private practice, I teach workshops and classes bringing knowledge, experience, and compassion to each student and client journey to wholeness. I specialize in helping them achieve spiritual balance as they empower themselves and transform their own lives. A primary focus is on healing the spirit and teadching self-caer with emphasis on physical, mental, emotional and spiritual wholeness. Stress, surgery, chronic illnesses, life threatening illnesses, grief and loss, depression, anxiety, trauma and disaster are just some of the conditions of life that can be aided.
The mission of my practice is to facilitate self-healing for all who seek, assistance; to educate communities on the benefits of these complementary energy-based therapies; and to teach those who seek to expand their knowledge of energy-based therapy.
My practice acknowledges that all people have the ability to self-heal and that energy-based complementary therapies can facilitate that healing. Energy-based therapy is useful in combination with traditional western medicine as part of an effective health care program for those with health conditions. It enhances a sense of well-being in those who have good health.
My education also includes and A.A. and A.S. degree. I am a member of Healing Touch International Inc. and The Reiki Alliance.
