Just do it!! That is a slogan we see everyday. And people now use it as a “cliche” almost. If “just doing it” were that easy, we wouldn’t have the mental illnesses, the suicides, the lack of motivation and the people just plain STUCK. THERE IS something deeper that just can’t be unstuck by someone telling you to “just do it”, OR by medicating them….that is just a bandaid…we are OFFERING full healing! and FREEDOM.
There are millions of people, (sadly) who have been traumatized at one point or another in their life. Trauma survivors- whether from abuse, accident, war, growing up with an alcoholic parent, watching a parent get abused by the other parent, the list goes on…..can end up “deeply and wounded, betrayed by their body for failing to get them to safety and for causing them pain”. (Overcoming trauma through yoga). Most trauma sufferer’s have lost hope. They are just put on some medications and sent of their way. But, to fully heal from trauma, a connection must be made to oneself. They need to get back into their bodies. They need a true, “renewing of the mind.” They have believed a lie for so long, and when you believe the lie, you empower the liar.
Trauma is a fact of life. Veteran’s and their families deal with the painful aftermath of combat; 1 in 5 American’s have been molested; 1 in 4 grew up with alcoholic parent’s; 1 in 3 couple’s engaged in physical violence.
THERE IS HOPE!
Women at the Well ministries is committed and dedicated to healing this epidemic. Yes, it’s an epidemic.
We do more than just encourage and say, “JUST DO IT”. We are doing the work!
We are focused on expanding beyond traditional talk therapies that only focus on the mind.
Our purpose is to help survivor’s reconnect to their bodies, with their breath and emotions.
We use worship music, teaching them how to meditate and quiet their mind so that they can have a “renewed mind”. The mind part is so important. Our thought patterns are highways to spiritual realities, and strong holds are developed through thought patterns. So, we also use scripture, actually teaching them how to “study and pray” the word, not just read the word. We help them release their normal “chaotic approach to life” that is limited in thought, which will enhance their faith. We teach them to think with a “DIVINE PERSPECTIVE”.We give them applications on how to “cast down thoughts and high things” (2 corinthians 10:5) The high things in this verse is referring to the “demonic realm”. We are not a religious cult or anything, as a matter of fact, we are not religious at all. We are Jesus people. Jesus himself didn’t tolerate religion as it did anything BUT set people FREE.
Our sister’s are taught how the breath, mindfulness and movement can impact their healing journey. WE use Holy Yoga as our physical tool. Because the intention is JESUS who is the Master Physician.
We are not “trained” counselor’s, but what we do offer is a creative way to facilitate an alternate (natural) way of healing. We utilize movement to get their brain to work in a functional way.
THERE IS HOPE….complete healing can be accomplished. Even the diseases that manifest because of this trauma.
We have a lot of work to do, many people to help….BUT, we need your help!
