An explanation of the causes, dynamics and potential benefits of life's transformative events or "spiritual emergencies" which can trigger emotional or psychic reactions ranging from near-death experiences, ESP, visions, and profound religious experiences. Because one's view of reality changes drastically when having these experiences, the immediate effect can be confusion, depression, physical illness, suicidal behaviour or other crises. This book is a guide to knowing what to do when one has one of these "spiritual emergencies" and is intended to be of help in spreading awareness of the meaning of these episodes and to encourage creative response.

From the Author:

When I was writing the "Sourcebook for Helping People in Spiritual Emergency" I was asked by Harper&Row to write a book on the same topic--but, for a general audience.  The publisher wanted stories, stories, stories--so readers could personally relate to this new concept...and learn that episodes of breaking into higher consciousness need not be disturbing, or seen as crazy or mad.  Instead, these periods of time are elevating and part of our evolution.   So, this book is full of great stories from wonderful people.  Thank you, HarperSanFrancisco!!!!  
The Sourcebook is a bit more scholarly.  It is being used in graduate schools and private offices to help health professionals discern the difference between spiritual awaking phenomena and criteria of mental illness.I had a lot of fun writing this book...I enjoyed meeting and talking to people and learning from their intimate experiences. I also could reflect more deeply on my sense of why more people are having these awakenings...what in the world is going on to catalyze them?   This process of self-reflection and more personal relating had more heart than the academic exercise of writing a more scholarly book.  But, I do see that each book has value--depending on what the reader needs.  

From the Back Cover:

Change your "Spiritual Emergency" into a spiritual awakening.  Emma Bragdon explains the causes, dynamics, and potential benefits of life's transformative events.
