Home for Healing & Wholeness

Nativity Cathedral

Our Mission

Nativity Cathedral’s Home for Healing and Wholeness seeks to awaken the wonders of our spiritual lives and nurture healing, harmony, and hope.

Anglican Prayer Beads

Join us to pray for hope and our shining light! In the 1980’s a group of Episcopalians set out in group contemplative prayer using beads. The experience is similar to the Roman tradition of praying the rosary but unique in that there is a more meditative focus. This type of prayer will deepen and transform your devotions into a richer spiritual experience. Come experience this transformative experience in community with Cathedral companions and friends!

Every Monday at 7 PM

Mindfulness Meditation

Mindfulness Meditation is a practice that focuses on mindfulness of breathing. The technique is to simply bring one’s attention to the experience of breathing in and breathing out. Whenever a distraction occurs and we notice it, we gently bring our attention back to our breath. A meeting is made up of several parts: Sitting Guided Meditation, QiGong; and Sitting Silent Meditation. Join us virtually on Wednesday evenings.

Facilitator: Kevin Siddons, Ed.D has a B.A. in psychology and an Ed.D. in Health Education. Kevin been practicing meditation since 1974, and practicing Thich Nhat Hanh’s Mindfulness Meditation for the last 8 years. In 2015 he became an ordained member of the Plum Village Order of Interbeing.

Group Spiritual Direction for Moms

Moms, join us for an opportunity to gather each month to listen to each other from that sacred inner space where we are free to just show up and honestly name how it is with our soul. Punctuated by times of silence, our time together will offer a place where moms can tend their own spiritual wellbeing.

Facilitator: Marcella Kraybill-Greggo is a mom, a spiritual director, and a member of The Cathedral Church of Nativity. Marcella co-directs the Spiritual Direction Graduate Certificate Program at Moravian Seminary, while also serving as Clinical Director for Moravian’s MA in Clinical Counseling.

Future offerings

Reiki

Reiki  is a Japanese practice and technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing and wholeness.  The word Reiki comes from the Japanese word Rei, meaning “God’s wisdom” and Ki, which is “life force energy”. Reiki is administered by “laying on of hands” and focuses on positive energy with restorative healing effects.

Tai Chi

Rooted in ancient Chinese martial art, the practice of Tai Chi has proven to help manage stress, promote health, and invite one into meditation. Tai Chi practice helps individuals increase flexibility and mobility and can lead to a sense of health and wholeness in mind, body, and spirit.

Candlelight Yoga and Compline

The beauty of a candlelit Cathedral invites you to a time of Meditative Yoga. Yoga allows a stretching of the body and holding in comfortable positions while inviting one to “detox” from the stress of the day. Follow this experience with the beautifully sung prayer office of compline, an invitation to holy peace.
