Spiritual Abuse & Religious Trauma

In today’s episode, Michael DiIorio invites special guest Jeremy Russo to explore how spiritual abuse can manifest within religious communities, causing harm to individuals’ mental, emotional, and even physical well-being.

We also touch upon religious trauma, discussing its lasting impact on survivors, and the journey towards healing and forgiveness. 

While this is a deeply sensitive topic, we believe it’s crucial to shed some light on the dark corners of this often-overlooked aspect of faith and spirituality.
