Soulful Living: Embodying Soul

This 12 week class helps you embody your soul as joyful, creative, playful, courageous, compassionate, and unique to YOU--your nature, power, calling, and gift. From a deep exploration of the soul's history to embodying your soul, this path leads to a more soulful and fulfilling life.  

Living SOUL

In this class you will explore and embody the nature of soul. Each week will introduce a new quality of soul to play with, examining an aspect or characteristic of soul as a way to internalize your soul and soul's capacity. From the soul's tendency to be playful and creative to the soul's need for depth and transformation, we will walk week by week through a year of soul, culminating in the application of these soul characteristics into a project of your (and your soul's) choosing. In this way, it is as if you are learning to partner with your soul to collaborate.

Is this path for you?

This is a path for people who seek a deeper understanding and reimagining of soul and an embodied relationship with their own soul. Do you want to connect with the essence, nature, calling, and gift of your unique soul? The soul's nature is to connect and unite, connecting us with the soul in the world and all life. At its heart, this is a path for people who want a more soulful life.

What are people 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 path leads to your soul and a union with your true Self.
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.

Following in the soul's footsteps

Heather is excited by the soul's ability to transform our lives and ourselves. Through years of self and soul-directed exploration, she has explored how to work and play with the soul's nature to transform our nature. In connecting to and embodying our soul's nature we connect to the natural world and the nature of the soul which is life itself. While she has a doctoral degree in psychological (a study of psyche or soul) and decades of experience in diverse spiritual traditions, Heather is the most excited about soul as a lived experience. This is a living experiential path that combines eco, art and play therapy in soulfully simple teachings that are embodied, playful, practical, creative, magical, simple, and natural.

Deep Dive into Soul

Following the soul in the world.

"I got into the dark, and I groped along my path. That path led inward and downward. I found the right way and it led me to you, to my soul. C G Jung
Just as Jung began by calling out and pursuing his soul, you begin by seeking and calling out to your soul to answer their call. This is a path lead by your soul. It is the soul you follow and only you can connect to your soul (You). The Soul of Creativity is about realizing your Self (whole or ensouled) potential through the qualities and guidance of the soul. 
This path has the power to transform your life and the world because the soul IS LIFE. While we may feel alone, we walk side by side in the darkness on the path with our soul

What is your soul's call?

"Every human life contains a potential, if that potential is not fulfilled, then that life was wasted." This is a call to the rhizome that holds your purpose. What is your deep calling and gift? In a very real way we are each a bulb or seed planted in the rich soil of the garden of our life and all LIFE. The world needs us to tend the world soul and offer our gift, to GROW.

This is a path that embodies soul

Each week you will walk on stepping stones that connect your nature to the creative nature of the soul, moving closer to the Self. These steps are patterned with a video to watch, an animated visual text and a downloadable interactive worksheet with prompts to guide you. An audio transcript is also included from the talk, so that you can activate your imagination in different ways and work and play with the holistic whole brain and body learning of the soul. 

Follow your soul.

As you walk  this path you open to the symbolic guidance of your soul through synchronicity, dreams, and visions. Your lesson will "show up" to help guide and initiate you into a relationship of greater intimacy. You are not alone.
"The dark night of the soul comes just before revelation." C G Jung

Deep Soul  + Self Care

Soulful Living, Drop In + Circle Up

This is an individuation path that leads into isolation and community. It begins with individual course work and moves into group work. In order to grow deep together we gather in a private circle in the hive.

This year is all about soul

Each step on this journey embodies your soul. From the practical to the mystical, the mundane to the magical. As you embody the soul characteristics in general, you get in touch with your soul's unique quality. What is your soul's calling and characteristic? 

You are remembering how to be natural

More than anything you learn, this is a year of unlearning or letting go of your false self--who you feel and think you need to be but aren't really.

Visual and verbal images 

The soul speaks in images. So this path uses visual and verbal art and images.

Imagination is magical

The word image comes from imagination along with the magi for magic and magician. This is a chance to practice the magic of the soul.

This course comes with a discussion group, bi-weekly zoom, and 2 personal sessions with Heather.
