Event description: The Soulcraft Intensive is our popular five-day experiential plunge into the
wild depths of Soulcraft; a synergistic set of nature-based practices designed to evoke the lifeshifting
experience of soul encounter. Your soul is your true self, those qualities that most
deeply define and express who you are and the unique gift that you were born to bring to the
world, a world so much in need of the socially transforming contributions of initiated, actively
engaged adults. To encounter the soul is to discover the mystical image you were born with,
which reveals the path to your greatest personal fulfillment as well as the essence of your
true service to society (the cross-cultural wisdom traditions say these are one and the same).
Soulcraft practices spring from nature-based cultures, modern depth psychology, the poetic
tradition, and wilderness rites of passage—to comprise a truly contemporary Western path
to soul discovery and soul initiation. For a full discussion, see Bill Plotkin’s book Soulcraft:
Crossing Into the Mysteries of Nature and Psyche.
The Soulcraft Intensive is highly experiential and—well—intense. We alternate between
practices utilized in group, practices explored in solitude in nature, and sharing and deepening
those experiences in small groups (5 to 9 people each). There is a Soulcraft guide for each
small group, providing you with a fully individualized experience. What you discover through
one practice is carried into and amplified by what you learn in the next. By the end of the
intensive, you will understand yourself and your place in the world from a more soul-oriented
perspective, be clearer about the gifts you were born to bring to the world, and have new
skills to enrich your life and to defend the health of the more-than-human world.

• Soulcentric Dreamwork
• Deep Imagery Work with Animal Guides
