Spiritual emergencies are not always easy to recognize. In this thought-provoking presentation, Elizabeth Sabet will help you understand the signs and what to do if you spot them. Often, people with these experiences do not talk about them out of fear of being ridiculed or ostracized. Sometimes, the experience can be so powerful and overwhelming that there are no words to share the event. The experiences may include brushes with death from an accident or illness or the sense that someone who has died is reaching out to you. They may be coincidences that seem meaningfully entwined or the feelings of being awestruck by a natural event. The varied types are not necessarily related to spiritual or religious orientation. Many people suffer in silence, leaving friends and family unaware of the internal struggle. This may lead to depression, isolation, substance abuse, and suicide.
Elizabeth will help you understand the signs and outline a six-step process for lending support. Regardless of your religion or spiritual path or that of your friends and family, spiritual emergencies happen. Join us and learn what to do; you could make all the difference in someone’s life.
