Spiritual Emergence Coaching

Spiritual Emergence Coaching®:

Support During a Spiritual Awakening/Emergence

Are you experiencing an intense spiritual awakening?

Are you confused, scared, need direction with how to open into your awakening or Spiritual Emergence, or just need to speak to someone who has experienced something similar, to learn how to thrive from the experience?

Or do you want to go deeper into your spiritual path or practice and want support?

What is Spiritual Emergence?

Spiritual Emergence is "the movement of an individual to a more expanded way of being that involves enhanced emotional and psychosomatic health, greater freedom of personal choices, and a sense of deeper connection with other people, nature, and the cosmos. An important part of this development is an increasing awareness of the spiritual dimension in one's life and in the universal scheme of things." (Grof & Grof, 1990)

Per Emma Bragdon, PhD:  

"When Spiritual Emergence is very rapid and dramatic this natural process can become a crisis, and Spiritual Emergence becomes Spiritual Emergency."

Spiritual Emergencies are "critical and experientially difficult stages of a profound psychological transformation that involve one's entire being."

What does a Spiritual Emergence Coach® provide?

Per Integrative Mental Health University (imhu.org):

"A Spiritual Emergence Coach© is trained to recognize psycho-spiritual phenomena and support those who are challenged by the ups and downs these unusual phenomena can create. Examples include: psychic opening, near-death experience, kundalini awakening, and shamanic journey.  As increasing numbers of people around the world are having these experiences, there is increased need to offer them support so that positive potential transformation is assured (rather than a faulty diagnosis of mental illness)."

A Spiritual Emergence Coach® can assist in finding meaning in the experience and finding direction. The coach will discuss whether assessments by medical and/or mental health professionals is necessary, provides guidance on how to ground and protect oneself during such a transformative process, and provides encouragement and support for further personal and spiritual growth. I will support you by sharing the best resources to help you ground, transform, and flourish.

Please fill out the contact form to request an appointment for support during a spiritual emergence, so the most positive transformation is possible.

If additional support from a licensed mental health professional is indicated, I with make the referral when indicated.

A rapid spiritual awakening or spiritual emergence is a gift. 
You will never be the same. It happens for all souls at some point in this journey on earth.
The deeper you are willing to go into the opening, the deeper your transformation will be in order to help other souls or the planet.
Some souls will want to reshape their outer lives in alignment with their internal changes. 
I'm a certified spiritual emergence coach and here to support you to flower into the best possible version of you.
