Dr Steve Taylor – Extraordinary Awakenings: When Trauma leads to Spiritual Transformation
How can breakdown lead to breakthrough?
A joint event with the Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS)
For 15 years, the transpersonal psychologist Steve Taylor has been researching cases of spontaneous spiritual awakening triggered by intense psychological turmoil. In times of bereavement, serious illness, addiction, deep depression and intense stress a miraculous transformation sometimes occurs: the death of an old identity and the birth of a new, spiritually awakened self. In this session, Steve gives some examples of these extraordinary awakenings from his research, and explains the reasons why intense suffering can cause them. Then he explains what we can learn from the phenomenon, with principles that we can apply to our own spiritual development. Steve will also lead a meditation and exercise to show how we can harness the transformational power of crises and turmoil in our lives.
