  Enroll in Course

“There is an urgent need for a radical revision of our current concepts of the nature of consciousness and its relationship to matter and the brain.” - Stanislav Grof

Are you a mental health worker who works with people experiencing extreme states of consciousness? Have you personally had an "awakening" experience either spontaneously or through plant medicine, yoga, breathwork, or any other personal development technique? Or are you just interested in learning about alternative approaches to mental health?

This webinar is for you!

What you will learn:

  • What is schizophrenia/psychosis
  • Alternative ways to view mental health issues
  • The difference between spiritual emergence and spiritual emergency
  • Past/present treatment options for someone experiencing "extreme states" or a spiritual emergence
  • Spiritual emergence resources
Join Kyle Buller and Michelle Hobart, MA for a discussion about the concept of spiritual emergence(y) and mental health. We will explore what this means and some alternative treatment options that may be available. Kyle and Michelle are both spiritual emergence coaches via Integrative Mental Health for You by Emma Bragdon, Ph.D.

The term "spiritual emergency" was coined by Stanislav and Christina Grof. The term, as the Grof's mention, is a play on words. The word "emergency" suggests a psychological or spiritual crisis, but it also hints towards an opportunity to "emerge" from the crisis -- accessing and gaining a higher level of spiritual and psychological awareness

This webinar is an excellent introduction for those interested in the risks and benefits of working with non-ordinary states of consciousness.

Kyle Buller

Kyle’s interest in exploring non-ordinary states of consciousness began when he was 16-years-old, when he suffered a traumatic snowboarding accident. Waking up after having a near-death experience changed Kyle’s life. Since then, Kyle has earned his B.A. in Transpersonal Psychology, where he studied the healing potential of non-ordinary states of consciousness by exploring shamanism, plant medicine, Holotropic Breathwork, and the roots/benefits of psychedelic psychotherapy. Kyle has co-taught two college-level courses. Kyle's senior capstone project, “Stanislav Grof’s Psychology of Extraordinary Experiences,” turned into a full three-credit course. Kyle also co-created, “The History of Psychedelics” with Lenny Gibson.

Kyle is currently pursuing his M.S. in clinical mental health counseling with an emphasis in somatic psychology. Kyle’s clinical background in mental health consists of working with at-risk teenagers in crisis and with individuals experiencing an early-episode of psychosis. Kyle also facilitates Transpersonal Breathwork workshops.
