Pilgrim SoULL - Weekend 1
The Nature of Being Human
SHORT SUMMARY: Through direct teaching and experiences, students will learn to see spiritual, energetic and somatic experience as deeply, inevitably connected, and discover the continuity of life within the body and psyche. They will learn to recognize patterns within this movement, which include the Vertical Pulse, the Allometric Wave, the Circular Pulse and the Radial Pulse. Students will link these insights to existing developmental theories within somatic psychology, especially Neo-Reichian theories.

EVENT DESCRIPTION: The School of Unusual Life Learning (SoULL) is a multi-level somatically focused program about human life which helps you take your own life and work to a new level of depth and presence. SoULL’s primary task is to connect human helpers, healers and creatives with wisdom teachings sourced from the natural world so that they first recognize themselves and others as natural and find radical applications of this awareness. We live in much greater separation from Nature in our time than any other time in history. We seldom recognize ourselves as being actually a part of it. We fear change and death to extraordinary degrees, and resist the natural changes of our bodies, psyches or relationships. SoULL is a remedy for this distress that powerfully changes student’s outlooks on their own life and how professionals approach their human service work.
Pilgrim SoULL is a 100+ hour program that runs (generally) from spring to fall. A primary goal of Pilgrim SoULL is to teach students to recognize the deep, energetic patterns within the life of the human being regardless of culture or race. It teaches how life energy naturally shapes us through every stage of bodily life, including its end. I call this our common human “Life Language”. It presents radical insights, not only on individual human life, but on relationships, community, and the deep, intrinsic connection between them. In its essence, Pilgrim SoULL is an initiation which teaches about birth, death, all that is between and after, the body, energy, how we grow, change, connect, release, die and love.
Level 1 takes place over three residential weekends with distance learning and group dialogue in between.
THE FIRST RESIDENTIAL WEEKEND IS CALLED "THE NATURE OF BEING HUMAN”
You may attend Weekend 1 without committing to the Full Program.
