Spiritual Dimensions of War, Wounding and Healing

June 13, 2011

For as long as societies have had warriors, they have experienced the wounding to mind, body, heart and soul that we now call Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).  PTSD is a new name for an ancient condition, made overwhelmingly more pervasive and destructive by the conditions of modern technological warfare. Together we will understand how modern war wounds the soul and war’s moral and spiritual dimensions. This afternoon session with Dr. Edward Tick explored the essential conditions necessary for the spiritual healing of troops and veterans and how best to serve their spiritual distress both in the combat zone and upon return. Held at the Abode of the Message in New Lebanon, New York on December 13, 2009.
