Let’s talk spiritual trauma! What is that you say? We’ll you’ll just have to listen to find out. But here’s a little preview. Imagine you feel lost in the after years of Catholic inspired guilt, and have little use for “God” as defined by a parent.
Better yet, maybe you’ve spent your whole life, filled with wild thoughts, and not the type of thoughts that lead to a well-ordered and joyful life.
Starting to get the drift? In some fashion, we’ve all been there. Trampled by the big question, “Is this all there is?” Truth is, yes, no, maybe. And that’s why finding your path out of spiritual trauma is so important, regardless of where the road leads you.
Today, my our guest on The Coming out Lounge is Darren Main, author, yoga and meditation instructor, and gay man and father. He’s also a highly sought after workshop facilitator and internationally know podcaster. During our journey with Darren today we’re going to ask the big questions, so buckle up and get ready to get your spirituality on!
- Weapons of compassion or weapons life long trauma
- Trusting your body to do things it’s never done gives you much more opportunity to explore
- Life is about practicing for the real world on a daily basis
- Demanding and exercising compassion is a practice
- The word FAGGOT has no power over me
