Guest rooms and cottages are available for those who want to be part of this unique and specific collected consciousness at Questhaven during all or part of the Christmas Retreat (2 night minimum, please).
A healthy person possesses a radiant magnetic aureole—one that has scintillating colors emanating from every vehicle of individuality. Radiations move in an upward direction in undulating rhythms, with the vital heart center the organ of their rising movements.
Join us for our Wednesday Night Advent Services as we Enter the Healing Light during the Coming Power Tides of Christmas.
7:30 p.m. Evening Devotional Services in the Church of the Holy Quest:
As Christmas approaches through the Advent season, we have an opportunity to draw even closer to our Lord Emmanuel, the Living Christ. His nativity is really the unfolding of our nativity through Him. Our Lord brings His influence upon our continual rebirth and transformation. Wednesday evening classes are devotional ceremonies that help us reflect on the myriad of ways that our lives are lifted and changed through our connection to Him. Sunday services will include an Advent candle lighting ceremony and topics to bring awareness to His living influence upon our lives. This advent we will concentrate on the opportunity for healing.
