Do I need to be healed

by | Jun 19, 2014 | 0 comments

Do we need to do a lot of psychological work on ourselves to be “ready” for spiritual growth and evolution? In this Q&A audio excerpt from Integral Enlightenment’s nine-week course Awakening to an Evolutionary Relationship to Life, Craig sheds light on this common question as he responds to a participant who asked “Do I need to be ‘healed’ before I can be enlightened?” Craig offers a clear and inspiring perspective on this sometimes confusing issue. He explores how we can distinguish genuinely helpful self-work from avoidance—and shares a stand we can take that transcends all resistance to awakening.

This audio brings depth and clarity to the inquiry in Craig’s latest article The Mistake Most of us Make on the Spiritual Path. If you haven’t seen the article yet, we encourage you to check it out.
