A free seminar on overcoming the pain and hurts of the past and leaving them in the past where they belong, drew an audience of about 1,200 women to the Rainbow Theatre, Finsbury Park, on Saturday 21 February.
The theme was inner healing and the seminar was organised by Godllywood, the UCKG HelpCentre’s women’s group. Flavia Barcelos, who leads Godllywood in the UK said: “The event was amazing! We had a good turn out; and all the women left feeling hopeful for the future. This is why we continue hosting such events to help more and more women overcome the battles within.”
The main speaker was international author and TV personality Nanda Bezerra, and her message was: don’t allow negative thinking to beat you down, instead look to the positives.
Two case studies were used to illustrate the point, telling of people who overcame difficult pasts, involving depression, disappointments and pain, and the audience was impressed with the way they had turned their lives around.
During the two hour seminar the audience received guidance and a valuable set of tools to help them get rid of their own past hurts and pain. Towards the end of the seminar there was an uplifting prayer and many members of the audience said they left feeling light and revived.
For anyone who was still troubled, however, there were a number of mentors in attendance to give free one to one support, and many of the women also benefitted from this.
By way of a follow-up, Godllywood will be running a three-part Inner Healing course that will take place on the last Tuesday of March, April and May at 7pm at all UCKG HelpCentres nationwide.
Women wanting to attend, either for themselves or together with someone they know is in need of overcoming past hurts and disappointments, can locate the nearest HelpCentre via uckgnew.org/addresses or by calling the national 24-hour helpline on 0870 068 2000.
