She emphasizes the podcast’s mission, stating, “This podcast invites you to intentionally tune in to your body, mind, and soul, allowing the sacred to intersect with your work.” As she reflects on her two-year journey with the podcast, Dawn’s passion for recording and gratitude towards her listeners shines through. Dawn and her team have been deeply observing and discussing the emotional and mental states of their clients, the world, and even themselves. She encourages listeners to share their observations and thoughts, urging them to reach out to her directly at Dawn@soulcarefortherapist.com.

Rejuvenation for Weary Souls

For therapists seeking a deeper connection and rejuvenation, Dawn introduces her upcoming “Soul Care for Therapists Retreat.” Set in the serene location of Monument, Colorado, from April 7th through 10th, the retreat promises spiritual exercises, group consulting, breathtaking hiking trails, scenic train rides, and more. She highlights the early bird special available until the beginning of December and shares, “We are going to have a time where we can really practice learning soul care and spiritual practices that will transform how we do our business, how we do our lives.”

Pause for Weary Souls

Diving deeper into the theme of resilience, Dawn discusses the collective exhaustion and trauma experienced due to significant events like COVID-19. She introduces listeners to the book “Resilient” by John Eldridge, which offers invaluable insights and skills for building resilience. She quotes Eldridge, saying, “We haven’t yet paid the psychological bill for all we’ve been through,” and suggests the PAUSE app by John Eldridge as a tool for personal growth and resilience. Towards the end, Dawn shares a heartfelt prayer aimed at mental resilience and peace, emphasizing the need to seek peace of mind.
