Reply to "ACES and religious upbringing"

Post-traumatic growth research tells us that spiritual healing is an essential part of physical and emotional healing -- they are intertwined and feed each other, not separate.  However, in my experience, because traumatic religious abuse is part of my ACEs,  I had to turn to other spiritual traditions than the one I grew up with in order to find healing.  

I love the quote someone shared: "Religion can be a resource or a roadblock."  And spirituality is an essential part of healing.
