Spiritual development is a lifelong process and can be a great resource for health. And sometimes periods of significant transformation can be accompanied by a mental health crisis. Join Rethinking Psychiatry for a presentation and discussion on “Spiritual Emergency.”
Drawing on both research and deep personal experiences, Harriet and Miranda will walk us through discussion of: Crises that often precede spiritual awakening, Crises caused by spiritual awakening, Phases of the process of spiritual awakening, how to support the process and each other to move through these periods with the greatest grace and ease, and the place of spiritual emergence in personal and global health.
