Spiritual Emergency: Embracing Unexpected Transformation 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...

Every Body Knows - Moving into Presence with Defne Erdur, 24-29 November 2019

2019-11-24 00:00:00
