Spring drew on…and a greenness grew over those brown beds, which, freshening daily, suggested the thought that Hope traversed them at night, and left each morning brighter traces of her steps.”
— Charlotte Brontë

Calling all ISD Energy Healers and Prayer Warriors

A message from Jo Ann Wormuth:
Our thoughts have great power. When we focus those thoughts in a group consciousness with a singular intention, miracles will happen.
As Director of the ISD Healing Program, I am seeking volunteers to come together as a family with a daily healing and prayer.
We will set an intention to transmute COVID 19 worldwide, pray for the well-being of our dear Mother Earth, and send healing to our friends and family members.
Each day at 5 PM EST, we will pause for about 10 minutes and meditate and pray with the intention of sending healing energy to all.
You do not have to be present each day. Requests for healing or suggestions should be submitted at the below ISD website l ink:
