Welcome to Episode 20 of Triggers and Spiritual Medicine podcast with host, Laura Bonetzky-Joseph. Join us for amazing podcast episode on “Seeking Clarity Through the Labyrinth, A Daughter's Journey Through Alzheimer's" with author, business owner, labryinth walker and facilitator Jessica Stokes.
Jessica brings her personal experience as a caregiver and professional experience as a labyrinth walker and facilitator into this conversation about a topic that affects so many families with the debilitating disease of dementia.
We share some hard truths, the spiritual medicine through such a difficult disease, some laughs, stories, and three tips to help guide you on this path.
Jessica Goldmuntz Stokes is an entrepreneur at heart. She co-owns a successful cleaning business in the Denver Metro area. She believes strongly in supporting all people on their journeys, wherever they are. Always seeking her own growth and truth, she teaches and performs belly dance, and practices Therapeutic Touch and Reiki. She is a daughter, a mom, a wife, a friend, and a caregiver. She has navigated multiple family members with Alzheimer’s, dementia, and Parkinson’s disease. She is an avid labyrinth-walker, a Trained Veriditas Labyrinth Facilitator, and a published author. She provides Labyrinth workshops for anyone experiencing loss.
Seeking Clarity in the Labyrinth, A Daughter’s Journey Through Alzheimer's is the story of my family’s way of supporting and eventually losing loved ones to Alzheimer’s. At times, it was like walking the path inside a labyrinth, we got turned around, and even lost. Yet it is also a story of how we found our way out of loss and confusion. I hope this story helps others find solace and peace. My wish for the reader is that this book will give them a sliver of strength, perhaps some clarity, and tools for healing.
ABOUT TRIGGERS & SPIRITUAL MEDICINE PODCAST:
Real talk. Let's address the elephant in the room to the growing "sickness" in our society, address root issues and provide sustainable solutions.
We hope by addressing the intersectionality and connect the dots like a web of many of society’s challenges, we can help others understand the trauma infection that impacts all areas of life – addiction, domestic violence, racism, homelessness, sexual abuse, chronic health issues, cancer, environmental issues, climate change and more.
In this NEW collaborative program, we hope by highlighting these infected areas and what they share in common, a new perspective of solutions, healing, and resolutions can be birthed.
Each episode addresses a certain trigger while offering the spiritual medicine with at least 3 tips or actionable steps our listeners can take and implement.
