Christina Grof at Science and Consciousness Conference
"Almost forty years ago, the noted Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung wrote that an alcoholic's craving for alcohol was the equivalent on a low level of the spiritual thirst of our being for wholeness ...(or) union with God. Unfortunately, all too often, this craving can become distorted into addictions of all kinds." - Christina Grof
Christina will present Thirst for Wholeness: Addiction, Recovery and Spirituality at the Seventh International Conference on Science and Consciousness, April 22-27, 2005, Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA.
During her workshop, she will explore this "craving" as a universal thirst for our own wholeness - our spiritual nature. She will discuss addiction as an exaggerated form of attachment. The role of abuse in the development of addiction and other problems will also be explored, along with the role of surrender, addictions of our global community, and the promise of healing and spiritual maturity. She will also show slides of drawings from alcoholism and sexual abuse recovery.
Identify the role of healthy spirituality as essential in healing addictions. Discover how the healing of trauma occurs through gradual diminishing of the false self and the rediscovery of one's natural state of wholeness.
Christina is an author, artist, psychotherapist, founder of the Spiritual Emergence Network, and co-creator of Holotropic Breathwork. For almost thirty years, she has been active in the field of Transpersonal Psychology, which includes the spiritual aspects of human nature, as well as the emotional, mental, physical and social aspects, as essential to a full understanding of the whole person. Ms. Grof is the author of The Thirst for Wholeness: Attachment, Addiction and the Spiritual Path, The Eggshell Landing, and coauthor of Beyond Death, Spiritual Emergency: When Personal Transformation Becomes a Crisis and The Stormy Search for the Self.
