Purifying the Heart: 5 Key Stages of Spiritual Awakening

September 28, 2024 @ 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Dr. Kason will share a beautiful model for the 5 universal spiritual life-stages, “Purifying the Heart,” based on the stages first described by Swami Sri Yukteswar, Guru of Paramahansa Yogananda, in his book, The Holy ScienceDr. Kason has found this model to be extremely helpful in understanding the changes in spiritual and psychological focus that she and the STE Experiencers she counseled go through over the course of their lives, often propelled forward by Near-Death Experiences (NDEs) and other peak Spiritually Transformative Experiences (STEs).  These stages are: the Dark Heart, the Propelled Heart, the Steady Heart, the Devoted Heart, and the Clean Heart.

Using her own life as a case example, she will describe how her 3 adult NDEs and a “calling” mystical experience propelled her onto the next spiritual life-stage. Dr. Kason concludes that the long-term goal of every spiritual seeker, no matter what spiritual path they follow, is to purify the heart and reach the final “clean-heart” stage, experiencing ongoing communion, and exuding spiritual wisdom.  She describes this model in her newest book, Soul Lessons from the Light.
