The Upper Room
There are two very special places at Carmel Temple. One is The Upper Room and the other is Blue-White Healing Light near the rear of the Sanctuary.
The Upper Room is reserved exclusively for quiet meditation. Many have sought answers, gained insight, and enjoyed the very special energy present.
Any visitor to Carmel Temple may visit the Upper Room, with the only request being that you do not talk, in order that the energy not be disturbed.
The Blue-White Healing Light
The second special place at Carmel Temple is beneath the Blue-White Healing Light, near the rear of the Sanctuary. Each Wednesday night we have a special healing meditation there.
We also have a short healing time there after the Sunday service. Each person who attends is invited to sit in one of the chairs under the light. We ask everyone else present to project healing energy to those in the chairs by visualizing them in their perfection.
The Crystal Prayer Request Bowl
The Crystal Prayer Request Bowl is used to collect prayer requests sent to Carmel Temple. It is placed under the Blue-White Healing Light at the beginning of healing sessions in the Sanctuary. The prayer requests then receive the energy and prayers of those present. We encourage you to place into the bowl the name (even the initials will do) of the person, persons, or situations that need prayer or healing energy. This procedure has been very effective and that bowl has an excellent reputation! We encourage you to use it. When the bowl is full, those prayer requests are gathered and placed in the walls of The Upper Room, where they continue to receive the powerful energy of that special place. This loving practice has been used since Carmel’s beginning.
Construction of the Carmel Temple Labyrinth completed in 2001
by Thomas L. Roach (1935-2001)
Carmel Temple has an outdoor labyrinth, located on the east side of the Annex, across the street from Carmel's Sanctuary. It is based on the famous labyrinth at the Chartres Cathedral in France. Here is a night picture of the well-lit labyrinth, taken from the rear, looking toward the arched front entrance.
