Sherbino Literary Living Room presents Elisabeth Lawaczeck’s “Stillness and Wilderness”
A “brutifal” journey from ego stripping to transformation. In Stillness and Wilderness, Elisabeth’s tale of spiritual emergency shows us how to heal, search for truth, find a greater purpose, and arrive at wholeness. Enjoy a brief guided meditation and learn about various types of spiritual emergencies (simultaneous mental and spiritual crises) and the available resources to support those who may experience such a rapid transformation. Elisabeth will then provide a brief book reading and a tour through the list of resources included at the end of her book to support those who may experience an intense psycho-spiritual crisis, and educational opportunities for healthcare and mental health professionals who want to learn how to increase their competencies in spirituality in their counseling services to help their patients heal.
“The Healer of Healers”, Elisabeth is a thought leader on the intertwining of mental health and spiritual growth. She became an expert during her regional leadership of a large federal mental health grant and simultaneously experiencing deep depression from loss and trauma that sparked a spiritual emergency. She then studied with experts on the psychology of awakening, and spiritual emergence/emergency.
She is a former deadly disease investigator, community health leader, and veterinarian, who helped prepare for and respond to the pandemic. Elisabeth was pushed into a rapid transformation that led her to powerful healers, mindfulness, meditation, yoga, Ayurveda and spiritual practices of deep wisdom.
Now Elisabeth bridges the world as a transformational health, life, and spiritual emergence coach®. The people she serves hire her to support them to return to wholeness through deep selfcare or transition to a different career to find inner joy and peace.
She plans to write and publish another book this winter on the spiritual aspects of her journey with animals as a wrangler, horse woman and veterinarian.
