National Speaker Helps Participants Learn About Soul Injury
Symposium helps participants learn about restoring their soul by grieving loss
ZANESVILLE, OH (Nov. 9, 2018) Genesis Hospice Care recently held a free symposium to help community members learn about soul injury. A soul injury can result from the death of a loved one, loss of personal health, bullying, abuse, accidents, natural disasters and other losses. “The symposium helped participants learn about restoring their soul by grieving loss, forgiving self and others, and cultivating self-compassion,” said Victoria Kumorowski, JD, LLM, MJS, DMin, director, Genesis Spiritual Care. “Acknowledging and addressing a soul injury can possibly help prevent destructive behaviors to self. This was a timely presentation to help veterans and other members of our community learn about soul restoration.”
The speaker was Deborah Grassman, MSN, ARNP, founder of Opus Peace, and a mental health nurse whose 30-year career at the Department of Veterans Affairs included the role of director of Hospice and caring for more than 10,000 dying veterans.
