The modern world keeps losing the deep soul connections, leaving people at odds with each other, increasingly disconnected and often disheartened. Yet, when everything in the outside world tends to fall apart, the hidden unity inside life may be closer to the surface and calling for our attention.
Meaningful change and genuine transformation are the secret aims of the tensions and troubles we encounter in life. Yet, change, so greatly desired, is not easily accomplished because genuine change requires one’s whole life to be altered; mind and body, spirit and soul. No change at the level of the human soul, no change at the level of the world.
Soul is the source of change; it is the seat of emotions, the radical root of imagination and the ground of our being. Amidst conflicts and chaos the soul instinctively seeks to awaken and grow the original design that it carried to life. When oriented from the deep self and soul within our choices can become meaningful and our experiences can become revelatory rather than isolating or traumatizing.
Even when everything breaks down the roots of soul know where to reconnect. When there is enough soul present we connect to the Soul to the World and become able to help both nature and culture to renew.

We live in the midst of extraordinary times and the human soul expects to find extraordinary experiences. For, each soul carries its own inner law or dharma; each has a calling to answer and a way of serving the world. Amidst radical changes in climate and in culture, creation wishes to continue, yet can only work through the souls of those alive at a given time. There may be no better time than these troubled times to learn the pattern set within the soul and claim the mythic thread that brought each of us to life.
The issue is not that there are no answers to the burning questions of life; the real difficulty is the problem of tuning-in to the paths our souls would have us take.
The issue is not that there are no answers to the burning questions of life; the real difficulty is the problem of tuning-in to the paths our souls would have us take. Being in a “mythic condition” allows us to reconnect to the creative core that holds the dream of our being and the true aim of our life. When in touch with the soul’s mythic thread we can find the arts and practices, the aims and meanings that allow our souls to grow deeper, our imagination to expand and our spirits to awaken.
Ancient people relied on myth and ritual to heal the wounds of culture and draw upon the renewing energies of nature. Myth and ritual touch the entire person, spirit and mind, body and soul. In the eye of the soul nature and culture are secretly woven together, so that working with one requires engaging the other. There may be no better time to reclaim and relearn the ancient arts of myth and ritual in order to assist with the healing of nature and the renewal of culture.
This workshop will draw upon the redeeming functions of myth and ritual as vessels of imagination and regeneration that can open new ways to see the world and new paths to follow.
