Episode 2012-7

In this episode of Light Transitions Radio, we discuss a topic that is very near and dear to me – Spiritual Emergence. Spiritual Emergence is the awakening of the spiritual potential within an individual that initiates the unfolding and expansion of that individual’s way of being. Our guide to these issues is Brian Farlinger.

Spiritual emergency is a natural process of growth towards a deeper, more connected way of being. This usually occurs slowly throughout our lives. When this happens rapidly, however, or very intensely, it can seem disruptive and out of context with everyday life. The result can be a personal crisis, which is referred to as a Spiritual Emergency.

Brian Farlinger has had a series of ‘Spiritual Emergency’ experiences over the last several years and is dedicated to supporting others through this transformative process. He has funded the operation of a supportive call line and internet referral service called Spiritual Emergence Service. This has been a registered charity in Canada since 2003. He is currently working on an initiative to create a physical center and bookstore for those in emergence.

Brian is a practicing holistic therapist in the areas of acupuncture, Acutonics, Phytobiophysics and holistic counseling. He also has a background in the western medicine field, specifically dentistry. Brian is interested in many forms of art including music and photography. He resides in Vancouver, B.C. Canada.

In the interview, Brian mentions a video that we made regarding my own experience. I’ve attached it below, as I believe it provides some useful information in the context of my own process of Spiritual Emergence.
