Supporting the global shift in consciousness to create an Integral world
Thousands upon thousands of people around the world are reporting having spiritual experiences, waking up to a more expanded level of consciousness, which have the potential to catalyze a greater capacity to realize our collective human potential. They can also be extremely destabilizing within our current cultural framework, resulting in a growing number of people experiencing mental health problems, exacerbating the current global crisis.
A growing body of research shows us that having
a non-pathological framework within which to understand spiritual experiences reduces the chance of a person going into crisis.
We have created ISEN (International Spiritual Emergence Network) to be a vital resource and collaborative platform to assist established networks around the world that offer compassionate support to individuals who understand their experiences to be a spiritual crisis, rather than a mental illness. We are in the process of helping to
create new spiritual emergence networks,
that help bring together people who need help with those who can assist them, in countries where they do not yet exist, in order to assist with this vital paradigm shift towards an integral world.
ISEN provides assistance, education and encourages research toward a non-pathological, integral framework that
understands and embraces spiritual emergency,
reduces the crisis’ risks, and raises awareness globally—assisting the emerging paradigm shift to a higher consciousness for all of humanity.
ISEN is working in a very close collaboration with the Grof Foundation, continuing Christina Grof’s legacy on Spiritual Emergence Network, intuitively guided in our mission from spirit and our passions to alleviate the suffering of those in spiritual crisis, and to spread and disseminate awareness of the transpersonal, for future generations.
