Foundations of Trauma-Supporting Spiritual Care is designed to facilitate the contemplative development of a skillful scope of practice for spiritual care providers. The course will:
The Wisdom Traditions tell us that suffering is unavoidable; there are storms and seasons, breaches and betrayals of trust.
“Spirituality” concerns our connection to everything. “Trauma” is our isolation, fragmentation, & disassociation and is what happens inside of us when we suffer without compassionate companionship.
Trauma-Informed Spiritual Direction is a supported journey of the restoration of safe and nurturing connections with our selves, others, Spirit, and the planet.
