Soulful Living, a Journey Back Home: Living a Life that intentionally cares for the soul

The goal of this lecture course is to define what soulful living is for each participant and to create an individual program for life specifically designed to nurture the soul.

Everything in our life revolves around soul. Soul is what creates happiness. It is what animates us.  

The problem is that if we do not intentionally nurture our soul, we lose touch with it. And when it is lost, we tend not to notice it's gone, even though it takes our whole life with it.

Without a workable plan to nurture soulfulness, the drive to be happy turns to obsession, compulsion and addiction.

Workshop will be held on 160 acre homestead in the Arizona-New Mexico border country. Course consists of group activities including beautiful and moderate hikes, overnight stay in the San Francisco River Valley.
