Crisis is defined as a stage in a sequence of events at which the trend of all future events, especially for better or worse, is determined – a turning point.
It can be a condition of instability or danger, as in social, economic, political, or international affairs, which leads to a decisive change, or a dramatic emotional or circumstantial upheaval in a person's life.
Crisis is something we all experience at some time or another. As we evolve and old systems begin to fail, there seem to be more crisis situations than ever before – personally and collectively. Yet at no time is there a greater opportunity for change than when a crisis throws all constituent parts up in the air to be reexamined.
How can we take advantage of the alchemical nature of crisis? How can we reframe our concept of drastic change, from a disaster – to an opportunity?
With us this hour to help us reframe the concept of crisis is Bridgitte Jackson-Buckley. She is the author of “The Gift of Crisis,” a memoir which chronicles her story of identifying the underlying purpose of ongoing financial crisis and the meditation practice which helped to overcome it. Bridgitte earned a psychology degree from the University of California, Berkeley. Currently, she lives in Los Angeles, where she continues to write about spirituality and personal growth, and works as a writer, author, and ghostwriter.
