You and Penpa will dive deep together, facing the muck and finding the healing. Be prepared to work with your shadows and embrace your inner light.
In many ways, we live in a traumatized world. We are all oppressed in one or another way, by individuals or by systems, by ourselves or by others.
We look around our community and the world at large and we see how unprocessed and unhealed trauma causes destruction and harm. We know how unhealed trauma and misunderstanding within ourselves blocks us from living our purpose and life to the fullest.
Soul work is a path for seekers of truth and freedom. When one is on the path of soul work – everything and every one is a mirror and teacher. It is a narrow path of no blame but of embracing all facets of ourselves and others.
It is an intentional uncovering of what’s in the shadow, the under-current energy, unconscious, repressed, neglected, abandoned, rejected and frozen into a state of numbness and addiction. Unprocessed for lifetimes, these unresolved energies run our lives leading us into habits of shame, guilt, criticism, cynicism, resentment, rigidity, prejudices and despair. In many case, because we have not embraced the darkness within us that we are unable to embrace the darkness projected outside in others and the collective.
Soul work is a work of alchemy, of seeing our shadows for what they are – potent wisdom and life force hidden in darkness looking for illumination, understanding and love. It is the home of compassion, wisdom and creativity. It is the house of our deepest prayers, our deepest longings, our deepest and brightest gifts.
Soul work is for longing brave souls who don’t want to waste the gift of this precious human life to uncover their true potential This is mostly a lone journey of taking the dive to the underworlds of our psyche, reconciling with the undesired parts of us so that wisdom can dawn.
Soul work is demanding. It requires immense courage, honesty, dedication and longing to wake up from this deep sleep of forgetfulness and confusion.
We will incorporate yogic practices, meditation, inquiry and journaling in this session.
"Not only provided answers to my questions, but took it a step further to make them accessible, and to suggest related topics that I could explore as I continue to develop."
"Incredibly knowledgeable and amazingly patient. Wonderful teacher. The exercises are already helping."
"Turned what could have been a boring lecture into an intriguing conversation where I felt both listened to and respected, while getting helpful answers."
All of our classes, sessions, workshops, content and products are offered for free in the spirit of the Gift Economy. The practice of generosity takes us beyond separate self-hood and constitutes a basic ethos at the heart of community, as it is the antidote to scarcity.
Rather than offering our work as a service to be bought, we ask for contributions to make this work possible. Please receive our offerings as a gift. If you feel inspired to reciprocate, please become a patron or make a donation, whichever feels right in your heart. The generosity we receive makes our generosity possible.
We offer all of our products and services for free because we don't want financial constraints to get in the way. If we all feel like we're the right fit, then we want to work with you – so remember that gift economy means you receive what you need, and give what you can to whomever you may.
