This workshop will draw upon Sufism, Jungian psychology, alchemical and hermetic pathworking, and Christian prayer through an in-depth guided meditation. The intention is to experience the field of one’s own inner self in an effort to bring together the fractured parts of our inner and outer lives.
Ultimately we are all looking for contentment and happiness. True lasting contentment resides in a deep abiding relationship with one’s inner being. This deeper self has been difficult to define, is sought by everyone and has had different names throughout the ages. People have used a variety of different methods to access guidance from their deep, inner selves. We will explore some of these methods in a contemplative setting to open a window to our own souls.
