From a spiritual psychological perspective becoming healthy and whole includes cultivating a connection to the spiritual self or divine aspect of oneself. This point of view is the essence of many intercultural holistic systems, i.e. that the spiritual dimension is a part, if not the heart and center of one’s being. It is also the cornerstone of the 12-step addiction recovery philosophy.
With the objective of psychological health in mind our work together can offer the opportunity to reflect on your relationship with spirituality in whatever ways that is authentically present. This exploration may include experiences with religious or spiritual community, higher power, meditation practices, as well as sacred medicine, ritual, ceremony, and prayer.
Sometimes as old religious and cultural conditioning (especially if it was unhelpful or even injurious) begins to give way to a clearer understanding of oneself, the question of spirituality emerges as a necessary and valid point of inquiry.
