In times of intense stress, a miraculous transformation sometimes occurs: the death of an old identity and the birth of a new, spiritually awakened self. For 15 years, transpersonal psychologist Steve Taylor has been researching cases of spontaneous spiritual awakening triggered by intense psychological turmoil. In this webinar, he will share his findings.

In this session, Steve will share examples of extraordinary awakenings from his research, and explain why intense suffering can lead to spiritual growth.

At the end of the webinar, Steve will lead a meditation and exercise to provide a hands-on experience of how we can harness the transformational power of crises and turmoil in our lives
