In this moving documentary, Michelle follows the journey of two of her friends - Lya Shaked from Melbourne who has terminal cancer and Fred Porter from USA who has HIV - on a healing odyssey to Brazil to see controversial spiritual healer Joao Texeira de Faria. Also known as John of God, he has been attributed to many miracles that science cannot explain and for the past 30 years, thousands of people from all over the world have been flocking to his remote village in Brazil in search of cures for illnesses for which Western medicine offers little hope.

The film follows Lya and Fred through the various healing processes at the healing centre consisting of meditation, prayer and procedures known as invisible spiritual operations. Energy is said to be the healing currency

With compelling cinematography and a poetic visual style, A Quest To Heal Beyond The Physical reveals how healing is so much more than simply curing the physical body. It can be a self-empowering journey that begins from within, encompassing our mind, body and soul. The film inspires us to consider a healing of the future that integrates both western medicine and spirituality.
