Podcast--"spiritual" and other aspects of abuse
« on: February 03, 2018, 09:08:01 AM »
I recently ran across a wide-ranging but provocative and insgithful podcast discussion on "spiritual abuse" at the following link:

http://www.theliturgists.com/podcast/2017/5/16/spiritual-trauma

Parts of this can be triggering, and there is a warning upfront for this. But I think it's worth trying to get through those parts as they often surround some highly relevant portions of the discussion.

Okay--it's 2 hours long, but unlike lots of discussions, this one has good flow and was packed with info that would be difficult to condense into soundbites. And it turns out it includes good general info about trauma, not just in the 'spiritual' sense. As a trauma therapist explains, "all trauma can have a spiritual component as they affect our overall outlook on life."
"...we make our descent into the darkness then wait for some new kind of wisdom to take root." --Valerie Andrews
