From the Session Abstract
Seminary & Spiritual Emergencies
An on-going joke for seminarians is, “Seminaries are the only safe-place to say “God is tallking to me” and you won’t get commiited to a mental hospital.” That said, one would expect Seminaries to be a haven for people who have had STE. As I discovered, that is rarely the case. Seminaries are think-tanks for the “study of God” and not for “experiencing the Divine.”
In this breakout session we will discuss: (1) How opening the door and saying ‘yes’ to STE’s is different, yet in many ways our paths are similar to someone with a NDE. (2) Multiple STE’s and how they affect our lives on an daily basis. (3) Once we’ve said ‘yes’ we can never close the door.
