Wild Soul: YEar Long
Perhaps there is a call on your life that you know very little about. Perhaps you feel something wants to be born, but you're not sure of what it wants, or what may be asked of you, or what might need to change. Perhaps this call is your own soul knocking on the doors of your current waking life. To say yes is to descend. This monthly program is for those interested in the descent to soul. Soul, as I'm defining it, is your deep life's purpose or place, or something like your true self, or your unique niche in the world. This is more like a lifelong conversation than a quick discovery, but the kind of conversation the ego wants to avoid. We will study spiritual maps, read stories and articles, engage in dialogue, do dreamwork, and engage in nature-based practices. Designed to be intensive and small, there is an application process and the group size is limited. You will journey with other women and men for one year (Sept-May) as we explore the mysteries of soul-oriented work. If you're having "mid-life crisis," even if you're not in mid-life, I see this is an opportunity rather than a problem. If you have questions about your life's purpose, beyond or beneath vocation, then you'll find a home in this course. If something about your spirituality is not making sense, you will find a safe place to explore these questions. If you feel like you're at a crossroads and are unsure of what's next, this is your intensive. Over the course of the year, we hope to deepen together your own relationship with Mystery and get clearer about living the largest story you're capable of living.

*I am currently in the guide-training program at Animas Valley Institute which is rooted in the work of Bill Plotkin. For more information about my basic orientation to soul-work see animas.org and/or Bill Plotkin's books, Wild Mind, Soulcraft, and Nature and the Human Soul.
