What Are the Benefits of the Spirit2Spirit Healing Model?

Traditionally, trauma has been treated like any other mental illness, even though it’s not an illness at all. Traditional methods are not always effective because they do not take soul wounds into account. The Guest House is proud to offer the world-renowned Spirt2Spirit Healing program, designed to help you fully heal trauma from the inside out.

Judy Crane and Spirit2Spirit Healing

The Guest House’s co-founder Judy Crane realized that healing trauma is an inside job. She dedicated her career to developing strategies that could fully treat trauma by healing deep soul wounds.

Crane created Spirit2Spirit Healing to help people get to the root of their trauma and heal their minds, body, and soul together. This program offers trauma therapy retreats for individuals who feel stuck in life, disconnected, and in need of deeper healing for struggles with mental illness and addiction.

The Link Between Trauma and Addiction

There is a well-established co-occurring link between trauma and self-defeating behaviors, like addiction. In fact, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) 2021 National Survey on Drug Use and Health found that “approximately 9.2 million adults in the United States have a co-occurring disorder.”

These co-occurring diagnoses are often related to trauma or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Traditional treatment, like talk therapy and medication, can’t always get to the root of these difficulties. Trauma ends up being pushed further down, which can result in chronic relapse and even negative effects from long-term medication.

Spirit2Spirit Retreats

Trauma needs to be healed and not just “treated.” The Spirit2Spirit Healing program uses non-traditional, experiential therapies that encourage holistic trauma treatment. These therapies can create lasting recovery by helping the mind, body, and spirit heal together as one.

Spirit2Spirit Healing retreats and workshops are available at recovery centers nationwide, and they are open to anyone who is in need. These programs incorporate nature-based therapies, group activities, and deep spiritual principles of reflection. Participants are able to make deep connections with themselves as well as others in a safe space.

Spirit2Spirirt Healing at The Guest House

At The Guest House, we incorporate elements of Spirit2Spirit into all of our programs. We also hold retreats on the grounds of our estate in Silver Springs, Florida, throughout the year. These experiences are open to any members of the public who struggle with addiction or other self-defeating behaviors as a result of trauma.

Many of our programs also utilize mindfulness-based practices, like yoga and meditation. According to the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH), mindfulness-based practices can help people improve their quality of life. Many studies have also found a strong correlation between practicing mindful activities and ease of withdrawal symptoms.

At The Guest House, you will find a wide variety of methods and tools at your disposal. Here, you have the ability to explore what works best along your personal journey of healing.

Trauma healing is a lot more complex than traditional treatment allows.
