Psychotherapy As Care Of The Soul: A Training In Thomas Moore’s Soul-Based Approach At Kripalu Center April 26-28th 2019. This program is mainly for practicing counselors, therapists + healers, but students of the therapeutic arts looking to deepen their work may also be interested.
The word psychotherapy means to serve or care for the soul. In soul-based therapy, we recognize the autonomy of the soul in a person’s life as a source of guidance and healing. The soul is central to our humanity, intimate connections, spiritual vision, and pleasure. When the life of the deep soul is blocked, we suffer. Soul-based therapy requires an ability to see what is going on beneath the surface. Since the language of the soul is poetic, we must learn to attune to artistic, literary, mythic, and dream imagery. Intense immersion in therapies that zero in on underlying narratives and themes playing out in a person’s life such as Alchemy, Renaissance Magic, and other esoteric systems provide rich guidance for soul processes. Specially designed for mental-health professionals, this program with Thomas Moore explores the journey of becoming a soul-sensitive human being, able to guide others with depth.
