Take the 1st step on an individuation
 journey home to yourself & the Self (ensouled & whole self), following your soul.

Journey into deep authenticity

This is a gentle & flexible approach to soul contact & guidance, following in the archetypal footsteps of Carl Jung, William Blake, Frida Kahlo & others on a healing journey of transformation. Designed to help you find your soul and way, this challenge includes journaling, dreamwork, active imagination, meditation, eco-mindfulness, visualization, gentle yoga, drawing, nature, painting & more to initiate you on an individuation journey called a "path" of embodied healing through the integration of the anima or feminine soul (in all of us).

You must make yourself into the vessel of creation in which the opposites reconcile [integrating soul in art].

Deep Creativity

This is a deep dive into the process that the psychologist Carl Jung called "nature," his soul called "art" & Heather calls eco-art & play therapy. Jung walked this path in his Black and Red Books, following in the footsteps of others as he lead his advanced patients & pioneered art therapy & research in the modern era. This pilgrimage follows in these footsteps on an archetypal journey that combines core power practices into a method of deep creativity.

Think of it [a creative visionary/dream image] in your imagination and try to paint it. Then when these things are in some precious book you can go to the book & turn over the pages & for you it will be your church—your cathedral—the silent places of your spirit where you will find renewal—for in that book is your soul.

Why should I walk this pilgrim's path?

This path is for you if you seek deep connection with yourself, soul, power, purpose, passion, intuition, body, art, creativity, family, nature & world.
Do you want greater love, compassion, courage, acceptance, authenticity, immunity, wellbeing, insight, understanding & more? Seriously, who doesn't?

This process has been found to reduce: stress, anxiety, depression, addiction, co-dependence, PTSD, alienation, disassociation, nervous system overactivation, autoimmune disease, interpersonal trauma, self-doubt, pain & more

& increase: self-esteem, overall wellbeing, cognition, productivity, immunity, peace, consciousness, compassion, boundaries, resilience, acceptance, conflict resolution/transformation, healing, treatment outcomes & experience 
 awakens group consciousness, co-creation & collective initiation
Individuation initiates a collective global transformation from an ego to soul-centered worldview & orientation.

If you succeed in remembering yourself . . . you discover the Self. . . Individuation is our journey towards understanding ourselves. It involves becoming the most integrated, whole version of our unique self as possible. . . [it] is the art of personal transformation.

Who is this pilgrimage for? Everyone

This class is for anyone who seeks understanding, meaning, purpose & empowerment in their life. It is creative and engaging, focusing on active application in activities & exercises so material will take root & change your life. While it comes with a one-on-one live session with Heather & an option for partner & group work, it is ultimately designed for you to explore your own way: to go deep into yourself. To do this, it is important that you are ready for self-exploration. This is deep psycho-activating work meant to kindle soul in your life & make a lived difference in your world. So, are you ready?

The privilege of a lifetime is to become who you truly are. [discovering, accepting, loving & creating yourself] 

C g jung

Ready? If you want to feel better: yes.

No art skills, psychological knowledge or belief in a metaphysical soul are required for this journey. The only prerequisite is a willingness to be creative, honest & authentic. This course is ideal for anyone who seeks deep healing, calling, meaning, transformation, and purpose. The practices of the path are the archetypal power practices of the ages that combine for profound transformation. While this path is for everyone who is ready to grow, it is not a superficial path but deep work. It is playful but powerful, catalyzing our suffering into sacrifice (meaningful suffering that leads to growth).

What people are saying . . .

This coursework is deep psycho-active or soul activating creativity. 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. At its foundation this art is about your heart's purpose and soul's call.
Its beautiful the language that you use. . . I really feel that you have made such a huge contribution to our souls, to our artistic creative selves. . . You have come in and created a furthering of neuropathways and pathways for us to look at the artist, the archetypal artist, and give us a place where we can have soul. I have great appreciation for what you have done with your dissertation. I would like to have a lot more Jungian work like this.

With a doctoral degree in archetypal psychology on art as a transformative process (based on Jung's Red Book), she is passionate about the transformative power of creativity. is a playful seeker, explorer, and inspirer who combines eco, art, and play therapy in a healing and teaching path that is embodied and natural.

Soul, Blake, Jung, Kahlo . . .

Following those who have gone before

While Heather has researched the soul's creativity to walk and lead others on this path, your soul is your real guide. Combining cutting-edge science and ancient wisdom, this path's deep magic is the soul. It is the soul you follow and only you can connect to your soul (You). The heart of this path is your relationship with your soul that connects you with your greater Self.
Only in our creative acts do we step forth into the light and see ourselves as whole and complete. C G Jung

Embodied creativity connects to soul

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. Each day or step you get a new video to watch, a visual text to read & view, plus an activity with instruction. Activities are designed to integrate eco-psychological theory & creative practice into your life as a whole.
Art is a kind of innate drive that seizes a human being & makes him its instrument. The artist is not a person endowed with free will who seeks his own ends, but one who allows art to realize its [soul's] purpose through him. . . he is a 'man' in a higher sense--he is 'collective man'-- who carries and shapes the unconscious, psychic forms of mankind.

Trailhead to the imagination.

As you walk you activate your imagination and open to the symbolic guidance of the soul in synchronicity, dreams, and visions. You are dreaming yourself awake and learning to see the waking world as if in a dream through the symbolic sight and insight of your soul. Opening to an archetypal perspective, you will begin to perceive the mythic story that underpins your life, guiding you on a path both within and without. As you move through the coursework, each week'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 in a union of opposites in soul.

Coursework and play . . .

Each week your content drops down for you below.

Soul alchemy = become a butterfly

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.


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.


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.


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 safe container for soul

Additional containment comes from creating sacred space in an art studio, creativity altar, and in your art which can be seen as your "church" and "cathedral," housing your soul. In these spaces you create a place of renewal and retreat for you to come back to again and again, whether creating art, lighting a candle, meditating, or doing gentle yoga. These spaces help 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 will be created with a circle ritual that opens and closes the class along with an individual session with me to open and close your personal transformation. 

This class follows 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 life-long journey & soul opus


The map is not the landscape

Just like the saying that the map is not the land, this path and the landscape you cover are unique to your experience. Still, a map can help you orient and find your way. So, we begin with creating a container or space for our creativity, gathering our supplies and centering ourselves in our soul. From there, each week brings a new lesson that characterizes the stage of the path, from ethics to shadow work to your soul's symbolic language. It is essential that you not know where you are going (so you can appreciate it when you get there and also feel like you are lost). Yet, you can trust that every week has guidance established to help you. Like participants in a trust building exercise, you need to lean into this. 

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.

Archetypal Psychology + Creativity

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, others, and the world.
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.

Drop In + Circle Up

Sign up for the support you need. Remember that I am here as a resource as well. Feel free to call and touch in for additional containment and support. Reach out to your alchemical partner and group. You are held.

Soul toolkit

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 Jung's footsteps as he followed his soul into the wilds of his psychological nature to reconnect with the natural world. Because creativity expresses in our nature and in nature, this is an eco-art therapeutic path to wholeness--to 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.

Connecting to the soul's creative nature

Images connect our nature to nature because we are a part of nature. So these courses work and play with the nature of our body. Drawing upon our psychological and physiological evolution toward visual evolution and primacy, the coursework combines visual and verbal imagery to maximize our whole brain and body learning. Just as images are the wealth and language of the soul, they are the language we speak in our creativity throughout the coursework. You are learning the unique language of your soul's images that are both visual and verbal.

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.

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.

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 ethic is authenticity

This is a very simple path that requires that you honor the soul and the soul's images. Jung called this being a disciple to the image but it is really a discipleship to your soul as a guiding image. What this looks like will be unique to you but it is characterized by a sincere attention to the details of your soul's images, a willingness to follow them as a path.

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. 

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.
