The SEN (Spiritual Emergence Network) was founded in the USA by Christina and Stanislav Grof and has now established itself in many European countries. In Germany it exists since 1993 as registered non-profit association with appropriate statutes. In general, any interested party can be a member and participate in self-help groups, projects, congresses and other activities of the association.
The aim of the association is to accompany individual or small groups on the spiritual path and in case of crises. Such spiritual crises can arise on the one hand in the spiritual practice itself (improper guidance or inadequate inner preparation and psychological stability of the person concerned); on the other hand, they can also arise through spontaneous spiritual experiences (eg paranormal experiences, suture experiences or sudden awakening of “Kundalinia energy” Which the affected parties can not classify in their worldview.)
In addition, spiritual crises may arise in connection with almost any difficult situation (conflicts with or loss of work, life partner, health, dealing with one’s own mortality, etc.).
Theoretically, the activity of the association refers to transpersonal psychology and therapy, a form of psychology which takes the religious dimension of the soul seriously again. Pioneers and classics of transpersonal psychology include C.G. Young, R. Assagioli, Count Dürckheim, S. Grof, K. Wilber.
