Take a Breath: An Overview of the Selah Stress Management Intervention
Like many people serving in professions in which they feel “called,” clergy are not immune to stress and burnout.

As outlined in the report, the findings demonstrate these practices are proven to reduce stress and anxiety and improve physiological responses to stress.
