Spiritual Care Services
Spiritual care consists of connectedness, consolation, and coping...
One key aspect of holistic health is connectedness. A sense of attunement comes with connecting. Connections can be made with oneself, others, nature, and that which is transcendent and/or sacred. Connection can ease feelings of loneliness and isolation in times of crisis. And as with many healthcare teams, spiritual care at The Lotus Center is available to help facilitate connections.
Consolation is a type of comfort or solace. It is an outcome that results from having a health care team respect and be aware of the many aspects of spirituality one might want to incorporate into their therapeutic relationship. When individuals face crisis, often times spiritual beliefs, and practices have been found to be a major source of consolation. For some, the consolation that comes through spirituality can bring an inner sense of wellbeing as well as feelings of empowerment.
It is important to note that our psychedelic clinical chaplain, Jude Higgins, is non-denominational and defines spirituality broadly—that which gives our lives meaning and purpose.
Coping can be a welcomed consequence of incorporating spiritual or transpersonal resources into personally transformative work. Spirituality’s role in helping people find meaning in life has been demonstrated often in many peer-reviewed studies, but what if people have trouble identifying transpersonal resources? Spiritual care at Lotus can help with that. Your psychedelic clinical chaplain can facilitate an exploration into this area in a way that is gentle, non-judgmental, and open. In fact, spiritual care at The Lotus Center can assist with identifying many coping skills and techniques that are patient specific.
