Why a Soul Toolkit?

Connecting to soul is essential to our life journey, and this course offers a variety of ideas, tools, and skills to help you get to know your soul and follow their guidance. 

Who is this path for?

This kit was created to help you undertake the other courses, along with the soul challenge. You may already have a toolkit, skills and practices that you use to connect with yourself and soul, but chances are that there will be added value in taking this kit which will introduce the content in a way designed specifically for this trail. As always, you implement the information in your own way, making it a part of your own journey. This is between you and You.

What people are saying . . . 

This kit is deeply psycho-active or soul activating. It is often described as life changing, offering the gift of getting to know your soul and yourself. It is not easy, but it is profoundly rewarding and life affirming, touching upon the core of who you are and why you are here, your heart's purpose and soul's call.

Following in the soul's footsteps

There are no new ideas. So, Heather is not the guide but someone passing on the guidance of others who have walked before. 

Your Soul

As always, your soul is the real guide.

The soul guides us through dreams, intuitions, emotions, synchronicities, revelations, hunches, inner prompts, and visions.

Melody Beattie

This is a journey home to your Self.

Each week you walk on stepping stones that introduce fundamental concepts and skillsets that connect your creative nature to the creative nature of the soul, as you journey toward the Self. These steps take you into the unconscious through coursework that is patterned to help you trust the process and surrender to soul.

This is a trailhead to your soul

As you walk you activate your imagination and open to the symbolic guidance of the soul in your life through synchronicity, dreams, and visions. Opening to an archetypal perspective, you will begin to perceive the story that underpins your life and relationship to life itself. As you move through the coursework, each day's lesson will "show up" and reveal itself in living images and experiences that deepen your insight. Walking in this way, brings you to greater consciousness, as it weaves your inner and outer, unconscious and conscious lives and worlds together. This union is the healing nature of the soul that unites opposites to connect the dots and see the big picture. 

Coursework and play . . .

Each week your content drops down for you below.

This class comes with a weekly drop-in because, let's face it, we need each other.

A structure to CONTAIN the process

This process is contained by your soul but also by 3 circles of support made by you and your classmates. Each circle expands with you as you create your opus, designed to offer different levels of containment as you individuate. These circles reflect Jung's process as archetypal or universal.

Alone

You travel alone.

like Jung
To really experience the darkness of the dark night of the soul, you need to be alone with your soul. So, you walk alone.

Partner

A partner helps to mirror you.

like Jung's patients with him
Jung viewed his patients art and worked with them one on one. So you work with a power partner to help contain you.

Group

A circle to discuss and reflect.

Like Jung's inner circle together
Jung led his inner circle on this path, creating a container for group growth. So, we meet in monthly zoom circles

Creating a container for soul

Additional containment comes from creating a safe sacred space to cocoon you as an alchemical container of transformation throughout your process, nurturing your creative practice in your body and a body of art. Additionally, a container that opens and closes each class.

Follow in archetypal footsteps.

While we follow the voice and vision of Jung to guide us upon our way, we also follow in the footsteps of artists and seekers from the past and present who have trod this soulful path through the ages. Integrating different examples from different traditions helps us explore and experience the breadth and depth of the soul's archetypal pathway as a creative form of transformation. While we follow in the footsteps of Jung, Christiana Morgan, and others, we ultimately find our way through the interweaving of synchronicity and story that reveals our own unique passage and images. While we begin with the embodied example of Jung's Black and Red Books, we end up off road, exploring the terrain of our own living psychology and soul. There is only one way, your way.

A 3 week journey

20-26 days has been found to be the time it takes to create a new pattern and change. Because 20-26 is the period we offer an additional optional week to help you transplant your change into your life. A follow up kit is the soulful living or living your best year to help you realize this change in your life.

Your soul brings you a vision 

Jung said that you cannot go directly into the unconscious but if you create unconsciously with your hands your soul would bring you a vision. Imagination has the roots magi for magic and image and it is the heart of this visionary path. As you walk you are activating your imagination and remembering how to play with your soul's images that guide you. Open your eyes, heart, and mind to a new way of seeing and being. Learn to navigate by starlight through the dark night of the soul.
Soul Path
The soul leads us to deep transformation and self-realization in ways that are creative and imaginative. 
Called by your soul through images from dreams, visions and the imagination, you are transformed in a process of deep soul care and soul relationship embodied in art.
Soul Love
The soul leads us to love which is the soul's greatest gift, reflecting their ability to unite opposites.
Just as Jung received a crown that said love never ends, we are guided to our own realization of self and soul love. What this looks and feels like is unique to each person.
Self Care
Self-care tends to your whole Self, gathering forgotten and repressed fragments of your soul from the past.
Receive tools that will support you to release unconscious patterns of self-doubt and neglect that lead to imbalance and disease. Down time is essential for creative growth.
Self Love
Gain the courage, confidence, and capacity of your soul to express Self-love for who YOU are.
Self-love is rooted in radical and deep acceptance of your uniqueness--how you are different. It is embodied in the unique qualities that are yours and yours alone.

On this path you find YOUR WAY.

While you are finding yourself and your way, you are on an archetypal path that offers a consistent way to navigate. Including elements of centering, mindfulness, visioning, dreaming, yoga, eco-psychology and breathwork, the soul guides us on a path that connects our nature to nature. So we begin with introductory videos to seed your imagination with these ancient archetypal practices proven through time.

Dream into your nature

Bridging head and heart, this course follows in the soul's footsteps into the wilds of your nature. Because creativity expresses in our nature and in nature, this is an eco-art therapeutic path to wholeness--for you and the whole world. This is more about the alchemical Great Work of Art than art. It is about your transformative growth, patterned after the perennial rhizome planted in the rich earth of your imagination to grow out of you in art.

Soul advice: "drop into your heart"

In our modern world we have become head-centered, dismissing emotion and intuition as inferior feminine ways of knowing. In a very real way, this path leads from head to heart, reconnecting inner masculine and feminine ways of knowing in a union or coniunctio that alchemically unites above and below, spirit and matter. This is a path to wholeness that integrates all parts of our being in newly discovered yet ancient embodied ways of knowing rooted in the earth.

A path into the wilderness of the soul

While we enter into the process on a path of painted steppingstones we find ourselves in the natural world. Jung said that the soul would become less and less a personification, an "other" and more a function. So we internalize our soul's capacity to activate the image of the world and navigate our life. We come alive and bring our life to life in its images. Where you find yourself upon this path is unique, but most people experience a deepening into the magic of nature and their own nature.

Imagine a new/old way and You

On this path you activate you imagination, moving ever deeper into yourself and the Self. The activating agent of the soul, the imagination is the soul's super power. An application of the intuition, imagination lets you reach places and knowledge otherwise unknown. As Albert Einstein said: "Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution." We need imagination to grow. 

The soul speaks in images

The soul's communication is symbolic and imagistic, embodied and imaginal. Jung said that his soul did not have speech centers and let her use his to speak, and studies have found that during spiritual experiences speech is not generated in normal speech centers. Nor is core wounding reached by speech. Both are accessed through the imagistic and embodied language of the soul. So, this soul path combines visual and verbal imagery in the way of the soul (the picture superiority effect) in which words are symbolic and metaphoric images, combined with visual art. When Jung's soul referred to the Red Book as art, she meant all of it.

The soul's goal is to make you whole.

This deep self-care heals you by helping you remember the forgotten and dismembered parts of yourself, life, and soul. Buried in the unconscious, these fragments of your Self are gathered by following your soul and harvesting your soul's images in art and creativity. This process touches and redresses core wounds that lie at the heart of your complexes, mining the rich soil of your unconscious to embrace lost parts, buried and cast in shadow. You need all of these pieces to reclaim your power and soul. On a fundamental level this is a soul retrieval and a soul mate relationship.
