About John Patrick Gatton, Poet, Author, Storyteller, MariEl Healing Practitioner
My first poem written was titled "Imagine." Somehow, that description of our daughter Cindy's arrival in Heaven inspired me to continue writing.
After having cancer and experiencing MariEl Healing through a wonderful woman of healing named Patrice Cheviot, I became a MariEl healing prayer practitioner. MariEl healing flows from Jesus through Mary. More than twenty years later I have prayed with hundreds of people with cancer, and with their families.
From those prayer experiences, and based on a business career of creating and delivering executive development workshops, I created workshop experiences for people with cancer. Currently, I deliver workshops for people who are searching for deeper peace and emotional freedom through their own relationship with God. These workshops have been given at the American Cancer Society, at churches, and the Upper Room, a Catholic Spiritual Development Center.
When I write, I make a spiritual connection to the person whose stories are being told. This creates the feeling within the stories that they are being written through me. In the years since our daughter Cynthia Jean's passing, many of my stories are about our spiritual connections and our relationship with God. This year WestBow Press will publish my fourth book.
With the masterful musician, Paul Jost, I also narrated a CD containing nineteen original stories. The lush background music combined with the stories arouses the healing spirit within the listener. Video is John Patrick reading his daughter Cindy's poem about entering Heaven:
