ABOUT THE LECTURE

For 15 years, the transpersonal psychologist Dr Steve Taylor has been researching cases of spontaneous spiritual awakening that occur in the midst of 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.
