Providing Care for Christians Experiencing Spiritual Emergency
Ever since the term Spiritual Emergency was coined by Stan and Christian Grof, this phenomenon has mostly been studied within the framework of Eastern religious practices. The mainstream Western Christian religion, largely ignoring mystical experiences, has been unaware of spiritual emergency, leaving the job of helping those persons having these experiences to mental health professionals who may pathologize this experience. This workshop seeks to provide understanding of the needs of Christians in Spiritual Emergency.
