Kundalini Awakening Integration

Spiritual Emergence and Spiritual Emergency for Optimal Health

Experiences like psychosis, near-death and death-witnessing experience, abuse, psychedelic experiences, and many other uniquely transformative events are not only difficult, they are often pathologized, ignored, shamed or dismissed. Cultural pressures, including psychiatry, often permanently blur our ability to explore meaning. For some people, medication is not adequate.

Positive transformation, personal evolution and cultural shifts can emerge from re-contextualizing extreme crisis. Brooke helps people find meaning and structure. By sharing experiences and resources and by celebrating our individuality and connection we can make profound changes.

Learn appropriate habits and environments to recover from dramatic life experiences and changes using Yoga’s moral and ethical principles, practices and a leaving room for awe, paradox and mystery helps us thrive. Brooke has traveled the world, studied with experts and participated in international trainings, presentations and campaigns.
