What is Soul Mentoring?
Soul Mentoring is a conversation.
It is a way of deeply listening to your own inner wisdom in the presence of another human being. Together, we unpack the challenges and celebrate the nuances of daily life. Living a life of Soul means living deeply, intuitively and with passion. How we get there is different for each person.
We will explore a renewed vision of yourself through understanding the stories you live by, deepened by ancestral histories, and by tending to your dreams. Together we creatively integrate a grounded, skillful sense of yourself and help you to create practices that nourish and sustain you. My intention in this work is that you have a meaningful connection to yourself and a sense of being at home in your life, where you feel strong, resilient and capable of meeting life's many challenges with confidence.
Soul Mentoring is about answering the longing to come into a deeper, more real relationship with yourself. Sometimes that call comes through dreams, visions or when something big changes us, like our health, our relationships or our work in the world. Sometimes it means we must step away from all we ever thought about ourselves or about life and move deeper into the forest and away from the familiar.
Having a companion on the journey can be very comforting.
Your Soul is calling. Will you answer?
I have been working in the field of mental health and wellness for the last 30 years, but the journey to understand what healing is, as it relates to the individual in a cultural or social history context, started for me as a child over 59 years ago. That life long interest is what I bring to our time together doing Soul Mentoring.
In addition, I bring skills from my training as a creative coach, a psychotherapist, a somatic therapist, a biologist, leading groups and individuals in dream tending, and as an Ancestral Lineage Repair practitioner-in-training.
"People say what we're all seeking is a meaning for life. I don't think that's what we're really seeking. I think that what we're really seeking is an experience of being alive, so that our life experiences on the purely physical plane will have resonances within our innermost being and reality, so that we actually feel the rapture of being alive in our bodies." - Joseph Campbell, The Power of Myth
