About The Soul of Therapy
The Soul of Therapy explores the difficulties people bring to therapy, with a focus on how spiritual growth can be an important part of healing and living a compassionate, radiant life.
Spirituality and mental health are often thought of as two separate tracks in a person's life. This six-part series aims to begin stitching them together, along with therapy, to reveal the critical areas where they influence each other.
Small events create huge disturbances in our relationships. “Old wounds, usually from before we ever met our partner, are like whales that are waiting in the deep to be triggered by events on the surface of life.”
How much should we think about death? What’s too little or too much? “I try to stop figuring out if I believe in life after death and get back to believing in life before death.”
Meditation can assist us with depression by reminding us to tune into a higher energy. “Move back to Source, pick up the larger signal, and live with that energy for a greater portion of our lives.”
You live inside your skin tone, your mental health situation, your flawed family. “Like Johnny and Moira, we don’t need to be stigmatized or made to feel less than fully human when we’re up a creek without a paddle.”
