If you are feeling unfulfilled and that there is more to life than you are getting, you may experience this as a personal crisis. Once you realize that continuing to do what you have been doing, and planning to do, may not offer all the happiness you sought, this often leads to a disruption of your life. At STAR, you will find an opportunity to discover the sources of your original conditioning which led you in this unfulfilling direction. You will also have the opportunity to discover your own path and passions.
Another source of personal crisis can be loss of relationship, family, friends, your health or job, etc. If you have good external and internal sources of support, the related feelings of grief eventually subside, and you can continue to function, even if it requires that you make changes and adjustments.
If the grief is longstanding, it may be because the crisis has tapped into some hidden and unconscious pain. When this happens, it may manifest itself in a variety of ways: depression or anxiety that becomes so excruciating that you resort to self-medication by drugs or alcohol or other addictive behaviors, or constantly seeking relief in new relationships, jobs, or activities that never seem to work out.
