4: Entry Gate to the Casa Dom Inacio established in 1979. The Casa operates as a non-denominational temple and Spritual holspital. Everyone receives God's love and healing and there is no charge for the services.
6: Main Hall - everyone gathers here at 8:00am and again at 2:00pm to join the current or get in line to see the entity. There may be 500-600 people on Casa days waiting to see JMedium Joao. | The day begins with prayer and the lines are called from the main hall stage. Most of the communication is in Portuguese with French, German, Spanish and a little English mixed in.
7: Heather Cumming is our guide and Medium Joao's primary support person. She owns the hotel where the group stays and takes each member of her group to see the entity. She provides the translation between English and Portuguese .
8: Medium Joao performs physical surgeries on the Main Stage when incorporated. The group is reminded repeatedly that God does the healing. | It is possible to recognize the different entities that incorporate as Medium Joao's physicality changes as the entities change.
9: Medium Joao occasionally took the microphone before conducting a surgery to explain what he was about to do and how all healing is done by God.
10: Crystal beds are apart of the healing protocol. One reclines on the bed and the crystals are aligned with the chakras. A colored light is pulsed through the crystal to help bring energetic balance to the body.
11: Blessed Soup is served to everyone attending a Casa day - free of charge. Hundreds of people receive the meal prepared in the on-site commercial kitchen.
12: The overlook provides a beautiful setting for mediation and appreciation of the spectacular setting of the Casa.
