John of God at Omega in October

johnofgod.jpgThe Omega Institute in Rhinebeck, New York, has announced that the famous Brazilian healer John of God is coming to conduct workshops October 1-4. The first day is already sold out. This will be his only visit to the U.S. in 2007.
John of God was the subject of an ABC special several years ago. The network’s online write-up here doesn’t conclude JofG was fake or insincere, but the producers clearly struggled with buying into his mysterious methods. As I recall, the show was a bizarre mix of gushing testimonials in no way undermined by reports that John owns an impressive Brazilian cattle ranch, despite the fact he charges no fees.
As to his abilities, John himself is modest. He is only a vehicle for God’s divine love and healing power, he says. He dispenses special herbs to his clients, and performs “psychic” surgery when necessary (that involves no knives). Some of his manual procedures are performed up the nose where he may somehow be influencing the pituitary gland.
I’ve met people who swear John of God changed their lives and resolved major health issues. By profiling five people who’ve sought his healing assistance, ABC’s producers revealed he has a surprisingly good track record.
Whatever’s the case, I’m confident that Omega’s workshops will be hugely popular, memorable events. If you’ve ever considered traveling to Brazil to see him in action, you might consider this New York venture an easier way to go.
Do you know anyone who has met with him? I’d love to hear your stories.

Hi Amy,
For several years my teacher shamanic practitioner Sandra Ingerman took her Medicine for the Earth groups down to John of God. One of my friends was healed of breast cancer. If you want to talk to someone my best friend went on one of those retreats. And too Ron Roth’s ministries also is connected to John of God.
