Soul Injury (Sōl Ĭn’-juh-rē) noun

  1.    A wound to your real self.
  2. Your “real self” includes the totality of who you are: the good, the bad, the ugly, the beautiful.

 People with Soul Injuries often report feeling like something is missing, that their life has no meaning, or that they are living a “counterfeit life” that does not belong to them. 

 Most of us have ingested Soul Injury self-rejection messages of some sort that have diminished our self-worth. Soul Injury especially impacts marginalized populations – populations that are often made to feel “less than” because of their race, their gender, their religion, or their sexual orientation. It includes childhood wounds that often persist a lifetime if you were bullied or made to feel “not good enough”. Sexual abuse and molestation are especially effective in causing a sense of self to disappear.

Course Instructor

Deborah Grassman


Few people have been with 10,000 dying veterans; Deborah Grassman is one VA hospice Nurse Practitioner who has. Dying veterans taught her lessons about how to attain personal peace. Ironically, those lessons came from people who had been trained for war! As a result, a phenomenon known as “Soul Injury” has now emerged as a relevant healthcare issue for the public. She contends that 10,000 dying veterans have lessons that the rest of us need to learn! Deborah is the author of two books, Peace at Last and The Hero Within. She is a contributing author for four textbooks, has 25 published articles, and there are 5 documentary films featuring her work.
