An update from Katie Mottram, author of Mend the Gap and co-founder of the International Spiritual Emergence Network (ISEN).
"I am overjoyed to announce that, thanks to invaluable contributor donations, the official #EmergingProud website is now live:
Please sign up there to keep up with ongoing campaign news!
Emerging Proud is a Human Rights campaign.
We’re entering a new evolutionary period for humanity, it’s time we normalised spiritual experiences to end stigma and the pathologising of them;
International #Emerging Proud day aims to initiate this on 12th May 2017!
Normalising spiritual experiences is fundamentally a Human Rights issue.
Article 9 of the Human Rights Act states a right to Freedom of thought, belief and Religion. And yet certain spiritual beliefs are still being pathologised as mental illness.
Will you #emergeproud to help the shift?
The aim of this campaign is to initiate an International #Emerging Proud day on 12th May 2017, as part of Mental Health week, in order to raise awareness about the spectrum of spiritual experiences, and ultimately, to normalize them.
May 12th will then mark
INTERNATIONAL #EMERGING PROUD DAY
every year from then on…"
