John of God

is recognized throughout the world for his paranormal healing ability. This dedicated medium has spent 43 years healing thousands of people weekly as the channel for over 30 different entities that perform spiritual healing. His work is free of charge and no one is ever turned away. People come from all over the world for healing at his center, the Casa de Dom Inácio. They are from all walks of life, with all conceivable ailments, many of which have been declared terminal or incurable. Scientific study and documentation of the results of John of God’s work place the cure rate at a remarkable 85%.

The spirit entities that channel through him perform visible and invisible surgeries. The majority of people receive invisible surgery, during which the helping spirits energetically change physical conditions and bring about miraculous corrections on mental, emotional and spiritual levels as well. Visible surgeries are done with a scalpel or knife without anesthesia or antiseptic yet no one has ever had infection or complications from his work.

When John of God channels the helping spirits they completely incorporate, taking over his body and mind. One by one, the people who visit him pass before him and are scanned by the spirit entities who perform the necessary healing. For some, the effect is immediate, for others healing unfolds over time and for others, additional visits are required. The love and divine energy that flows through John of God touches everyone who visits him and makes the Casa a sacred space that is uplifting and transformational.

Healing Quests is the opportunity to visit John of God for your healing, facilitated by experienced group leader Heather Cumming, Shamanic practitioner and Reiki Master. Heather grew up in Central Brazil near Abadiânia, and is fluent in Portuguese. Her knowledge of the land and its people combined with her knowledge of spiritual healing and energy medicine make her an ideal trip leader. All aspects of your stay are managed by her, including translation when you are before medium John. The comfort and ease, and the knowledge that you are guided and cared for create security and support that allows you to focus completely on your own healing.

“I do not cure anybody. God heals, and in his infinite goodness permits the Entities to heal and console my brothers. I am merely an instrument in God’s divine hands.” - João Teixeira de Faria

"The spirits chose well; a man, not of cultivated society or extreme intellect, but one of exceptional courage, perseverance and, above all, an unswerving dedication to his life's mission, who makes no preferential judgment of color, class, wealth, religion or position. This is a man worthy of his common title 'John of God'." - Robert Pellegrino-Estrich The Miracle Man.

Some of the principle Entities:
There are 33 Entities who work through Medium João. Some of the Entities have chosen not to reveal their identity but are frequent visitors nonetheless. During incorporation the Entity carries with him his own personality from the past life and is recognized in João’s mannerisms and behavior. Sometimes João in-Entity will discard his glasses and scientists have recorded that the colors of his eyes change to match the color that the particular Entity had when alive. Patients receiving healing energy from the Entities will often be moved to tears.

Dom Inácio de Loyola 1491-1556 - St. Ignatius of Loyola is the principle Entity after whom the Casa is named. When João incorporates the entity of Dom Inácio many miracles happen. He works calmly for many hours, a testimony of his unlimited compassion, kindness and patience.
“For those who believe, no proof is necessary. For those who disbelieve, no amount of proof is sufficient.” - St. Ignatius of Loyola

Dr Augusto de Almeida is one of the most frequent Entities at the Casa de Dom Inácio. He is reported to have been in the military, a rubber tapper and a doctor in previous incarnations. When Dr Augusto incorporates he is recognized for his strong personality and his somewhat authoritarian manner. He is known to be extremely kind and is deeply loved by all.
“My phalange comprises not of ten, nor a hundred but thousands of Helping Spirits. I am the one who reaches to the very depths of the abyss to save a soul.” - Dr. Augusto de Almeida.

Dr Oswaldo Cruz 1872 - 1917. Medical doctor, founder of Medicina Experimental Brasileira, is credited for eradicating the yellow fever epidemic in Brazil. He is a direct and forthright in his interactions while at the same time extremely kind, and compassionate. He has the most beautiful eyes, which seemingly pour out unconditional love to all in his view – a very powerful and moving experience. He will often request that wristwatches be removed as it disturbs his current.

Dr. José Valdivino - There is a photograph in the surgery room of the Casa where one can see the Entity so fully incorporated that João’s physical body is almost completely replaced by Dr. José Valdivino. Very little is known about this Entity who when asked replied simply that he was a protector of families. During his healings he is extremely gentle, compassionate and loving. He possesses energy that is especially powerful for curing paraplegics. With a touch of his hand and a command for them to walk, or move the afflicted limb, many miraculous healings have been recorded.
