WHO WE ARE
The Soul Restoration ceremonial workshop is a program offered by Opus Peace, a non-profit 501(c)3 organization responding to soul injuries generated by unmourned grief and unforgiven guilt that occurs during trauma, abuse, self-neglect, and serious illness. Our goal is to help soulfully-wounded people love, forgive, and trust themselves to navigate in the world again by disarming their heart while cultivating personal intimacy with fractured aspects of their own self.
WHAT WE DO
We train Soul Injury Affiliates in providing Soul Restoration Ceremonial Workshops. These workshops provide an educational and experiential program for people who have been traumatized, as well as personal and professional caregivers. We create a safe haven so people can re-own and re-home the parts of themselves that may still be carrying unmourned grief or unforgiven guilt. Re-owning is a process of deliberate discovery of hidden parts of ourselves that previously we had only wanted to avoid. The re-homing process opens a nurturing relationship with our disconnected part of self so it can feel safe enough to reintegrate. Participants will experience some level of healing even if they only witness the ceremony without participating in it. The next Facilitator Training course is October 31-November 3 in Tampa, Florida at the Franciscan Retreat Center.
