Wellness Center

The Farm of Peace Wellness Center


Opening in January 2018, the Farm of Peace Wellness Center offers support for healing of mind, body and spirit through a range of modalities that are complementary to standard medical practices.

Healing modalities include acupuncture, spiritual healing, couples and family counseling, stretching classes, writing from the heart, cupping, lymphatic drainage, conflict coaching and reconciliation.

The Center is a resource for anyone experiencing stress, health issues or relationship challenges, or who is seeking to improve wellness and live a more fulfilling life. It supports efforts to adopt more healthy lifestyles, without requiring any particular faith tradition or belief system.  The programs can be helpful for many chronic conditions, for dealing with life crises or trauma, or recovering from addictions.

Healing sessions typically take an hour for individuals or up to two hours for couples or groups, and are reserved by phone.  Payment is by heart donation at the time of treatment, to allow us to sustain the Center’s services while ensuring access for all. (Some modalities may have a minimum fee amount.)

Wellness Weekends are offered monthly, beginning Friday at 2 p.m. through noon on Saturday, with payment by heart donation and a minimum room charge of $30 per person.

Writing From the Heart with Jamila Davies – Friday afternoons; Saturday mornings during Overnight Wellness Program
Writing From the Heart is a tool of self-discovery and self-knowledge and a doorway to a deeper understanding of who you are. Jamila’s deepest desire is to help you open to the beauty and love you carry inside your own heart so that you may live in the fullness of the life God intended for you.

Integrative Mediation and Reconciliation with Dr. John Abd al-Qadir Davies – Thursday afternoons.
Sessions are for couples, families, friends, co-workers or groups who are willing to work through issues or patterns that are creating conflict, stress or separation between them. The goal is to create a renewed sense of connection, understanding, trust, love, or intimacy, or to redefine the relationship as may be needed. The mediator provides support and coaching as needed to open up communication and deepen connection, allowing for a more authentic, mutually empowering and appreciative relationship with each other.

Spiritual Healing and Coaching with Dr. John Abd al-Qadir Davies – Thursday and Friday afternoons.
Spiritual healing and coaching is for anyone experiencing stress, health issues or relationship problems, or anyone seeking to improve wellness, live a more fulfilling life, or deepen their connection with the Divine. This process is complementary to standard medical approaches to healing and is supportive of efforts to adopt more healthy lifestyles, or to recover from trauma, crises or addictions.

Spiritual Healing with Mary Morris – Friday Afternoons
Spiritual healing with Mary is an introspective and collaborative journey. Together, Mary and her client identify the source of challenges and, through meditative prayer, the heart is healed and the soul is uplifted.

Electro-Sound Lymphatic Drainage with Na’ima Bastress – Friday Afternoons
The lymph system is crucial to the body’s ability to ward off disease and to heal from injuries. The lymphatic system depends on physical activity to propel lymph through its vessels. This  state-of-the-art electro-sound lymphatic drainage technology decongests the lymph system and stimulates lymph flow painlessly and effortlessly in a gentle and soothing manner.

Acupuncture with Robert Jamil Bastress – Friday Afternoons
Acupuncture promotes natural healing. It can enhance recuperative power and immunity, support physical and emotional health, and improve overall function and well-being. It is a safe, painless and effective way to treat a wide variety of medical issues.

Cupping with Robert Jamil Bastress – Friday Afternoons
Cupping* is a method of healing used in many traditional cultures.  By heating glass cups or using plastic cups with suction the practitioner is able to remove toxins and relieve stagnation.  This improves circulation to the desired areas of the body and supports the healing response.

Stretching for Unity with Matt Nur Belmont – Monday and Friday at 8 a.m.; Friday at 6 p.m.
