S05 E15: Healing the Whole Person: Interview with Dr. Bob Schuchts

About This Episode

Today on the Abiding Together Podcast, Sister Miriam, Michelle and Heather have another heart to heart conversation with our good friend Dr. Bob Schuchts. Dr. Bob is a family and marriage counsellor for 40 years and founder of JPII Healing Center.

Dr. Bob shares about the 7 universal wounds in the human person that affect how we relate to others, ourselves, and God. He teaches about how those present themselves in our lives and how we can begin the healing journey that leads to freedom. 

You can find more about Dr. Bob’s ministry here. Dr. Bob’s book, Be Healed, is available along with all his other books at jpiihealingcenter.org/shop.
