Spiritual emergencies and spiritual emergence
Mindfulness practices are foundational for the cultivation and emergence of authentic spirituality
Spiritual emergence is a natural opening and awakening experienced as a result of meditation, life crisis, systematic spiritual practices or through unexpected peak experiences.
While spiritual emergences can be contained within sangat (group meditation) and gently allow one to experience and embrace their natural connection to the transcendent space allowing profound levels of integration and consciousness.
Spiritual emergency can be an extremely disturbing and difficult process of egoic-dissolution leading to rapid and dramatic changes, accompanied with visions, powerful feelings, images, inner experiences, physical sensations and even external energies that can be frightening, overwhelming and challenging .
Gurmat therapy provides training in developing a supportive and integrative processes enabling a safe integration leading to deeper levels of awareness and connection to the Divine (Akal Purekh) Timeless Consciousness.
