Unburdening is a chosen way of being that reflects personal values and manifests quality of life. The purpose of this paper is to describe findings from a Parse research method study on the universal lived experience of unburdening. Parse's human becoming school of thought serves as the theoretical foundation for this research. The participants were ten persons, 22-74 years of age, living with spinal cord injury in the Midwestern United States. Parse's research method, a phenomenological-hermeneutic method, was used to answer the research question Three core concepts emerged through the processes of dialogical engagement, extraction-synthesis, and heuristic interpretation. The core concepts are uplifting lightness amid constraints, fortifying engagements, and cherished endeavors. These core concepts when integrated provided the following answer to the research question: The lived experience of unburdening is uplifting lightness amid constraints, as fortifying engagements emerge with cherished endeavors. Uncovering the structure of unburdening enhances understanding of this phenomenon as it is lived and provides new knowledge about health and quality of life. Heightened understanding can further inform nurses and other health professionals, who value the person's own perspective about humanly lived experiences. This in turn will strengthen nursing knowledge and serve to guide practice in caring for persons with spinal cord injury and generate ideas for further research.
