Transe-cognition: for a coherent hermeneutics of spiritual awakening. Crossing the threshold of awareness, the thinking function goes beyond reasoning and is firmly founded on pillars of awareness, such as presence, attention, inspiration, vision, creative imagination, spiritual will, intuition, and insight. Human experience thus reaches the heights of the highest qualities and transpersonal states, which have been masterfully described by Maslow and Grof, among others. But, what about we come back to an ordinary state of consciousness. Reasoning starts again, dual mind organizes and integrate the experience following the same habit of thinking, the same conditioning and identifications. Transe-cognition focusing on Stages of Thinking beside States of Consciousness both unfolding along a holarchic evolutionary, propose a non-dual, supra-national way of thinking in order to integrate the experience through an integral transpersonal hermeneutics.

Hope and Support for travellers between the worlds: the work of the UK Spiritual Crisis Network. The UK Spiritual Crisis Network was founded in 2005 and has provided online support, face to face groups, volunteer training and conference to increase awareness ever since.  To those finding themselves in disturbing and disorienting situations, it offers a hopeful message that this could be a journey of transformation, if managed safely. We offer sound advice about how to achieve this through grounding in the present and maintaining a foot in both worlds, at the same time as creating space, nowadays over Zoom as well as face to face in some locations, for fellowship with others on the same journey.
