CONDITIONS

Counseling, intensives and retreats as offered by awakeandalive.one are not a replacement for any therapy or other medical treatment or diagnosis. It is very important to understand that we offer various ways for self-realisation, however they are not meant as a substitute for medical advice, diagnosis or treatment. Any change or discontinuation of therapeutic, psychological, psychiatric or other medical treatment should be undertaken with the supervision and guidance of a medical or other specialist mental health clinician.

 

If you are currently receiving or have previously received any medical treatment or therapy for issues related to mental health, the counseling, intensives and retreats may not be suitable for you. Please check before registration your medical or other mental health clinician to inquire if this is suitable for you at this moment.

 

Everyone who experiences psychiatric conditions, or other unusually strong emotional conditions might not benefit from this type of counseling. Occasionally, being in such an environment can adversely affect pre-existing mental health conditions. Conscious counseling, intensives and retreats are not the cause, but they may bring up latent traumatic imprints or deep-rooted tendencies in the body-mind, which can trigger strong, seemingly overwhelming, thoughts, emotional responses and behaviour. A participant with a mental health condition may feel overwhelmed by this and additional medical and psychiatric support may be required. Please be aware that we are not able to provide this type of support or expertise.

 

Please consult your medical health specialist for confirmation if participating in conscious counseling, intensives and retreats as offered by awakeandalive.one is or is not suitable for your present (mental-) health condition. If one of the following circumstances is applicable then participating may not suitable for you at this moment:

  • Suffering of a or any anxiety-, mood- and/or personality disorder(s), OCD, schizophrenia and psychosis.
  • Taking prescribed or non-prescribed medication for the treatment of a mental health condition.
  • Having used any psychotropic (mind altering) non-prescription drugs for recreational, spiritual or self-medicating purposes within the past 6 months.
  • Having any substance use disorders, including harmful use, dependence and addiction.
  • Having undertaken a detoxification from substance use within the past 12 months.
  • Having experienced any aggravation or deterioration of your mental health during the past 12 months irrespective of whether you have sought specialist advice or not.
  • Having ever experienced any unpleasant or unwanted effects, including physical, cognitive, emotional or ‘energetic’ effects, that have persisted beyond the duration of your participation in a spiritual practice or retreat, which may have interfered in your well-being and/or functional abilities.
