Individual Healing Session with Jorge Hachumak ~ Peruvian Healer

Tuesday, July 25 through Thursday, July 27;  Open to Close each day

The private healing sessions include the laying on of hands to specific parts of the body. The client is asked to close their eyes and focus within, but no specific thoughts need to be held or no conscious effort is needed from the client. Hachumak makes a dialogue with the deep part of the person’s consciousness, and bringing the healing forces with whom he keeps a connection, the force of life directs itself to what is needed by the client. This can have a clearing effect of past pains and darkness and reconnects the client’s inner self with the healing force of life. This is not just a release of old patterns but a true reconstruction of the inner world of the client in a more healthy way. Sessions $250 for 1 ½ hours.  Call 231-941-5805 to schedule your appointment.
