Caregiver Resources - Spirituality & Faith
Listed below you will find helpful spirituality & faith resources for caregivers.
Soul Injury is dedicated to creating a movement that acknowledges and responds to the Soul Injury that often occurs with trauma, as well as the weariness of the soul that sometimes occurs in caring for those who have been traumatized. Through our development of ceremonial workshops, resource materials, and facilitator training they are able to help traumatized people and their families re-own and re-home scattered pieces of themselves so wholeness can be restored. Their goal is to help traumatized people love, forgive, and trust themselves to navigate in the world again by disarming their heart while cultivating personal intimacy with fractured aspects of their own self. The Soul Injury program focuses on traumatized populations; the Soul Restoration program focuses on self-care for caregivers.
Soul Injury and Soul Restoration ceremonial workshops respond to wounds generated by unmourned grief and unforgiven guilt that occurs during trauma, abuse, and neglect. The goal of the workshop is to help traumatized people learn how to love, forgive, and trust themselves to navigate in the world again by disarming their heart while cultivating personal intimacy with scattered aspects of their own self. The Soul Injury program focuses on traumatized populations; the Soul Restoration program focuses on self-care for caregivers. Both ceremonial workshops are 3-dimensional providing education for the mind, safety for the heart, and courage to develop a new relationship with the pain in their soul. Children receive “Soul Buddy” dolls to help them give voice to the pain and anger they might experience due to the soul injury in the family.
Being a caregiver can be tiring and stressful, making self-care especially important. There are four condensed sessions that will help you learn a set of portable and spiritually based skills that can assist you in managing negative thoughts and feelings. Using a mantram can help you manage life’s daily hassles and live in the present. These meditation based tools for emotional regulation are easy to implement in a busy routine and should be exercised frequently. Removing doubt about mantram is the first step for this self-care practice.
