Spiritual Abuse: A Conversation on Recognizing and Preventing it

What is spiritual violence and spiritual abuse? And how do they relate to sexual abuse? There’s still so much to discover about accompanying each other on our faith journey, and living a spirituality of unity should never be an excuse to manipulate or exercise power over other people. With this webinar, we hope to raise awareness by talking openly about how to both prevent spiritual abuse and build healthy relationships.
