Online Communities & Resources

  • The Reclamation Collective: The term “deconstruction” is applied and misapplied to so many religious contexts today. It can be difficult to understand deconstruction’s meaning and purpose within a larger spectrum of religious growth. The Reclamation Collective authored the term years ago, and continues to provide support for people in their religious journeys. You’ll find space to process pain and confusion from spiritual abuse whether you were/are a Christian or the member of another religion. There are also specific support groups hosted for LGBT+ and people of color as they become available, hosted by Reclamation Collective staff. A cost applies for each program/support group session (about 6-8 weeks), with a sliding scale available for low-income attendants.
  • Crisis Survival Skill: Tapping | Recommended to play the video 2-3x Crisis Survival Skill: Ice pack on the left side of neck, on the sternum, or held in the hands to soothe extreme emotions down to a level manageable enough for choosing coping skills.  
  • r/HomeschoolRecovery: Subreddit for homeschool alumni
