The Healing Place Center for Counseling and Spiritual Formation is dedicated to equipping Christian caregivers to help broken people find freedom and wholeness in Christ.  Training is provided at many level integrating Formational Prayer, Christian Counseling and Transformational Spiritual Direction.  The annual Formational Prayer Seminars are the main events that attract professional counselors, clergy, pastoral care providers, Christian educators and lay caregivers. 

The four-day basic seminar training in formational prayer is conducted the first week in November each year by the founder of the Formational Prayer Model, Dr. Terry Wardle of Ashland Theological Seminar.  This basic level training is followed by a two-day intensive level training on issues related to attachment by Dr. Neal Siler.  Additional one-day seminars and speakers forums are held in January and July on specific topics.  Please refer to our Events Page for information on upcoming training opportunities.  Please note our staff is also available to conduct formational prayer seminars and training events in your location.  Contact us by e-mail at to share your training needs.


"Countless people, both Christians and non-Christians alike, battle deep emotional pain as a result of wounds from the past.  The struggle is often so intense that it significantly debilitates people, compromising the level of well-being and joy that Christ intended for their lives.  The Father of comfort and compassion cares about these individuals and has mad provision for their healing through Jesus Christ."
