Pot of Gold:

Laughter, Love, & Light

Global Healing Event
Friday, March 15 & Saturday, March 16 on Zoom

CLM's popular Global Healing Event returns to Zoom on March 15-16!

Join presenters Padre Paul Funfsinn, Rev. Robert Bearden, Rev. Dana Duryea, Rev. Renee Plendl, Monk Thomas Hildebrand, and Rev. Miriam Karell for powerful talks that will reconnect you with God as you prepare for the Easter and spring seasons! This event will take a whimsical, light-hearted look at the importance of pursuing God's desires for us (the real "pot of gold") instead of worldly offerings. Monk George Lopez, Monk Ryan Rigoli, and Rev. Angelika Schafer will provide live worship music, and the CLM team will provide healing prayer during Friday night's session as well as during Saturday's breakout rooms. Friday night will be led by Rev. Miriam Karell, Monk George Lopez, and Monk Ryan Rigoli.

Join the Zoom 15 minutes before the start time each day for prayers, announcements, and to set space for the retreat. Friday's prayers will be provided by Rosemarie "Sis" Ansell, and Saturday's prayers will be provided by Rev. Susan Wallace.

What others have said...

  • "The last East of Heaven weekend in New Jersey was a moving, heart-filling, life changing event this past weekend. Thank you! Thank you!"

  • "I feel my personal connection with God so strongly again. I feel him flowing through me and in me and as me and as the world and everyone else. My heart is open to God again and I am in a flow of his love. When I pause and revel in His presence I find myself smiling and laughing for no reason. At the retreat I was able to sing again like my young self, ecstatically praising Him and loving him. My body was moved by Him and I wanted to cry from joy many times."

  • "It was an incredible 2 days! You probably don’t remember, with everyone leaving at the time, but I shared with you that it had a profound effect on me. I have indeed been able to return to “stillness” and sit with the Divine… MUCH more easily than prior to the Retreat and also really have internalized Jesus… much closer … a true friend. Thank you, thank you!"

  • "The first night of the retreat you talked about being broken in order to be rebuilt by the Holy Spirit. Both my brother and I were amongst the first to be called up to receive a blessing.  Somehow we ended up standing next to each other, both of us in a bit of a daze and neither of us knowing what to expect.  I remember holding onto his hand, my eyes closed. When you came to me, you said something like,  "Let go of his hand.  We come as individuals, not to carry our family.  Surrender, let it be."  I began sobbing and shaking, because some of my biggest fears are around separation, responsibility for my loved ones and potentially losing them as I continue on my spiritual path.  When you asked me to let go, I fell to the floor in tears and couldn't move my body for quite some time. After the retreat, upon returning home I noticed that my "normal" triggers weren't lighting me up.  I was also aware of an increase in the flow of love between myself, my children and my husband.  Today Divine Presence is with me at work.  I learned that God is good, that he is everywhere and that he truly wants what is best for each of us."

  • "I experienced a feeling of Love for God and Self that was stronger than anything else/all secondary relationships, and this Love is getting stronger.  It was the first time I experienced such a palpable feeling that had such strength, knowingness and grace with it, that I know that I am fully supported in my journey of living centered in my relationship with God. I love witnessing how God works in such playful and unexpected ways, yet always hearing us as we are learning to better hear Him/Her.  I learned that just being Me is enough, and that is my service."
