September 9th 2021: Encore: Spiritual Awakening – The Myths & The Realities

Are we in a catch-22 with mental health and spiritual awakening? On the one hand we are finally seeing mental health moved out of the darkness and being recognized for its crucial role in our overall wellness but on the other hand, people talk of the Covid-19 pandemic as being a global spiritual awakening. Why is it a catch-22? Both mental disorders and spiritual awakening can share similar symptoms and experiences but if treated the wrong way can alter the outcome.

On the one hand we are finally seeing mental health moved out of the darkness and being recognized for its crucial role in our overall wellness but on the other hand, people talk of the Covid-19 pandemic as being a global spiritual awakening. Why is it a catch-22? Both mental disorders and spiritual awakening can share similar symptoms and experiences but if treated the wrong way can alter the outcome. A Spiritual Emergency and the Dark Night of the Soul may not always be part of spiritual awakening. Both however can include depression, dissociative experiences, feeling disconnected and psychosis. Experiences that many people may wish to go to a therapist for or it may be suggested that they go to their health care provider. If the health care provider prescribes medication, which given the conditions above would seem like a good choice, the spiritual emergency has now been moved to a psychiatric emergency. The medication will help alleviate the symptoms and the person may start to feel more ‘normal’. However, In a spiritual emergency the awakening process has been halted, at least temporarily. We have seen a tragic increase in opioid related deaths recently. Untreated spiritual emergencies can lead to substance abuse and suicidality. Today’s practitioners must become familiar with not just mental illnesses and disorders but also spiritual disorders. If we are bringing mental illness out of the darkness and include with the body, then the spirit must also be moved from the back of the line to be integrated with mind, body and spirit. The spirit requires us to act as a midwife or a psychopomp, allowing it to successfully transition through its journey of awakening. Wednesday September 1st at 7 pm at 3300 Yonge St Suite 302 Gord will be presenting a 3-hour mini-workshop on Spiritual Awakening. Covering Dark Night of the Soul, Spiritual Emergencies, Awakening and Spiritual Bypass. Discover the signs and symptoms of each and differentiate mental disorders from spiritual disorders. How can we best assist in guiding others and ourselves through a Spiritual Awakening when the road is not clear and ofttimes bumpy. This workshop is for anyone wanting to understand their own journey and for practitioners to understand the role they can play guiding clients through their spiritual journey. Masks are Mandatory.
