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.

Heather Taylor-Zimmerman, PhD

Following in the Soul's Footsteps

Heather has walked this creative path of the soul of creativity from childhood. From years of self and soul-directed exploration through art to teaching others in college classes and workshops, she is passionate about the soul's creative potential to transform our lives. With a doctoral degree in creative psychological (soul-based) transformation and decades of experience in diverse traditions, she weaves in gnosticism (direct knowing), visionary art, alchemy, archetypal psychology and creativity. From the archetypal path of the soul embodied in the psychologist C G Jung's Red Book to wilderness rites of passage, Heather combines eco, art and play therapy to connect our nature to nature. Her teaching is embodied, playful, creative and natural.

An Archetypal Perspective

Following in the Soul's Footsteps

While Heather has researched the soul's archetypal (universal) creative nature to walk and lead others on this path, your soul is your real guide. Combining evocative visuals and insightful words that alchemize cutting-edge science and ancient wisdom into stepping stones, this path's deep magic is the soul. It is the soul you follow and only you can connect to your soul (You). The Deep Self-Care is about realizing your Self (whole or ensouled) potential through the transcendent insight of your soul who connects your creative nature to nature because they are nature. This 6 month 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.

Deep Self-Care is Soul Care

Caring for ourselves means caring for the earth that we are made from. Deep Self Care offers a soul toolkit that is rooted in the earth.  

Vocation: Follow your soul's calling

"Every human life contains a potential, if that potential is not fulfilled, then that life was wasted." This is a call to the rhizome buried in our life that holds our purpose. What is our potential--our soul's true call?

A soul path that leads inward and downward

Jung begins his Black Books with the recognition of a "huge task" that lay before him, as he "got into the dark" and "groped along" his path. So, begins a journey to find and reunite with soul: "'My soul, my soul where are you?'" How many of us feel that we have lost our soul and our way? This is a course in which we seek the inner guidance off our soul to find our soul, Self, and way on a journey into the depths and the desert of our being. This is a path that leads us to our soul's call and life's purpose, uncovering images buried within the dark earth of the unconscious.

Step by step

Like any path that we travel upon, this journey takes us step by step from one place or state of consciousness to another. Yet, on this pathway we do not lead but follow the soul, allowing the soul's vision to guide us. In this way we seek and find the soul, embodying the soul's sight and insight.
"I am ultimately doing this to find my soul." C G Jung

A format to support your growth

Each week you walk on stepping stones that introduce fundamental concepts, quotes, and skills. These steps are patterned to help you follow your soul. Each week you will get a new video to watch, along with creative prompts, tutorials, and a written material. You journey held within a circle of support and aided by an alchemical partner, interacting in live zoom sessions and a private social media platform. The learning structure includes many unique features that help support you. 

This is a 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. This union is the healing nature of the soul that unites opposites to connect the dots and see the big picture of the Self and soul.

Each week your content drops down for you below. Here is some content to go through as we deepen into and wait for the journey to begin.

Designed to move with the seasons

This is about nature—biological, psychological and ecological. Deeper still, it is rooted in the alchemical or transformational connection between spirit and matter that connects us to our soul through our creative nature, deepening our relationship between the unconscious and conscious—body, mind, and spirit. To dance in turn and in time with the seasons, the courses allow you to step in whenever and wherever you are, beginning the dream cycles of seeding, weeding, watering, tending and harvesting.

Deep self care begins with you and the self and soul-reflection that helps you to know and see yourself.
Care for your soul
Soul care is insightful and magical. It reimagines you and what you are capable of. Your soul accepts and loves you.
Soul care is the transformative agent of this process. You are embodying your soul's resiliency and capability.

Journey into nature and your nature

Caring for your land on the land, you heal your nature in nature. So Deep Self Care takes you out into the natural world to heal and be whole. With forest bathing, natural breathing and nature healing, you return home.

Your soul connects

Your soul's super power is connection, connecting you to others and the world. When you connect to the soul you are one with all life. So Deep Self Care connects you to yourself and others, within and without.

Connecting to soul connects to everything

When we connect to soul we connect with others and the world: we connect ourselves with the Self and all life. So Deep Self Care is deeply connected, rooted in the collective unconscious and superconscious.

Connected to soul we are one

In Deep Self Care we create a circle of power that embraces the whole world. The soul is the center that mediates opposites, a center that holds the tension of difference and leverages its power to change.

Connected to soul we embody spirit

In Deep Self Care we realize that spirit takes form in matter to enliven us and the world. The animation of the body is the heart and soul of Deep Self Care. So we focus on the body and return to our senses.

Deep Care = Deep Intuitie Wisdom

In Deep Self Care we embody the intuitive wisdom of the soul in our lives and world. Connecting embodied instincts, mindful intellect and ensouled intuition, Deep Self Care is a path of soul alignment. 

Whole = Natural

Deep Self Care is simple because it is natural. It allows us to be who we are naturally. Letting go of our false layers of who we think we should be, we reclaim the power of who we were born to be, natural and healthy.

Drop In & Drop Deep

In Deep Self Care Your heart drops you into the body and the soul in the world.
