After 120+ years of analytic experience, models of the psyche have proliferated in conjunction with developments with various other disciplines. As the nature of knowledge itself is being reconsidered in the 21st century, there is movement towards a new synthesis incorporating many levels of information and experience, in which the porosity of subjective and objective states transcends traditional binary views.

Once only the stuff of science fiction, evidence has grown that precognition – glimpses of your future in dreams and visions and being influenced subtly in waking life by what is to come – is real. Your future thoughts and feelings shape who you are now. And your present thoughts and feelings shape – or shaped – your past.

October 7-9, 2022
We live in an epoch not only of political, but archetypal tumult. The meta-narratives through which we have historically come to understand ourselves and our world are being challenged, deconstructed and imploded. It can feel as if we have been thrown into a metaphorical sea of storm-tossed waves with navigational instruments that are not only outdated, but irrelevant, as even the heavens deny us a clear sight of the North star from which to navigate.
Hosted on campus at the Ladera Lane Barrett Center

THE SOULCRAFT INTENSIVE is an experiential plunge into the wild depths of the Psyche. Soulcraft™ is a synergistic set of nature-based skills and practices designed to evoke the life-shifting experience of soul encounter – the revelation of our unique mythopoetic identity. An identity expressed through symbol and metaphor, image and dream, archetype and myth; an identity embodied in a mysterious story that whispers to us in moments of expanded awareness and exquisite aliveness.
