In Case of Spiritual Emergency


Spiritual emergencies can be triggered by many things: loss of faith or a loved one, intense spiritual practices, even childbirth. Too often these spiritual crises or ‘dark nights of the soul’ are not recognized for what they are, but are seen simply as psychosis, depression or mental breakdown. The spiritual component of these experiences is ignored. Yet when spiritual crises are understood, supported and integrated they offer enormous potential for growth and fulfillment, for healing and awakening.


Catherine G Lucas has created a unique Mindfulness-Based Approach to Spiritual Emergency. The Founder of the UK Spiritual Crisis Network (SCN), she has designed and delivered three international conferences on spiritual emergency and has been featured on a BBC Radio 4 program on the subject.


Catherine’s book In Case of Spiritual Emergency: Moving Successfully Through Your Awakening (Findhorn Press 2011), draws on her personal experience and that gained through. the Spiritual Crisis Network, to offer information, insights and strategies to help us understand what triggers a spiritual emergency, the three key phases of moving successfully through it, and why Mindfulness is the most effective tool for coping with it.
