The Art of Healing
We tend to think of healing as two distinct things: Emotional Healing and Physical Healing. If we take a moment to contemplate the actual steps of healing we come to recognize that they are one in the same. At its core, healing is an experiential, energy-requiring process in which we carve out a healing space and foster relationships that help us navigate the original trauma, repair, rehabilitate, and learn and course-correct away from the burden of the trauma toward health and thriving! This healing process should result in (and from!) a sense of wholeness, integration, balance and transformation.
Our understanding of physical trauma and the path to healing is well understood and formalized. Our emotional healing tends to be more conceptual, if not ignored completely. How often have you heard "time heals all wounds?" Here's a news flash- IT DOESN'T!
