By Sitara Blasco, with Juanjo Segura, Jean Farrell, Marc Aixalà and Jasmina Hrapovic.
Many people go through episodes of crisis of deep meaning that interfere with daily routine and with personal relationships. For some, those changes are progressive and relatively soft, but for others they can be dramatic and make every day functioning difficult. Some of these crises could involve radical transformations and represent a challenge both for the person who lives them and for those who witness the process.
Stan and Christina Grof coined the term “Spiritual Emergency” to allude to crises that carry a deep personal transformation, frequently associated with spiritual opening. With this name they want to evoke, also, the positive potential of these states, suggesting that they are an opportunity to “emerge”, to rise to a higher level of psychological functioning and even of spiritual awareness.
Properly understood and supported, these crises can result in important psychological changes and consciousness evolution.
The focus of this module, in the framework of Transpersonal Psychology, is the understanding and treatment of these crises of transformation known as Spiritual Emergencies, as one of the major contributions from the Holotropic perspective.
Whether you are a professional or a layperson, someone interested in working with people in transformation crises, or primarily in your own growth, this module offers a rich experience and valuable information.
In addition to differentiating between psychosis and spiritual emergency, we will also explore the practical aspects of who, in these kinds of crises, can benefit from Holotropic Breathwork, and how best to work with them in their emergencies.
The workshop includes:
During the module, each participant will experience two sessions of HB as an experiencer, or "breather," and two sessions as a partner, or "sitter", lead by Sitara Blasco and Juanjo Segura and GTT staff. Besides the breathwork experiences and the topics covered, there will be mandala drawing and integration time.
To participate in the module it is not necessary to have previous experience in Holotropic Breathwork. It is required to complete a brief confidential medical form. If you wish to continue with the Grof Transpersonal Training, this module is one of the four mandatory required.
