Sometimes I think we over complicate frameworks that we might work from. I really like your idea of mental illness as a disconnection from self, others and higher power. For me this is something that is accessible as an inpatient hospital chaplain who is working with people who are at the height of their mental health crisis and are with us for just a day or two. The idea of reconnection makes since to me and really is something that I have been doing already.
This has been such a helpful class. I have greatly appreciated the conversation and insights shared.
