Creating Your Spiritual Path
A Process of Inquiry, Insight, & Integration
Discovering our Archetypal Style – Answering our Spiritual Questions
September 26 – October 3
Who am I — what is my life purpose – what happens when I die?� These are among the life’s essential — spiritual questions.� Our answers shape our spiritual paths and give meaning to�our lives.� To find our answers, we first must begin by discovering “how we know.”
For this we turn inward to explore the archetypal spiritual styles hidden in our unconscious minds.� These styles are the lenses through which we see the world and develop our spiritual knowledge, experiences, and practices. �Our archetypal lenses are sharpened through contemplative practice.� Once we ‘know how we know,’ our answers emerge, our spiritual path is defined, and our lives have meaning.
In this program, we will: (1) Explore our hidden archetypal styles. (2) Employ our styles to discover answers to our spiritual questions. (3) Refine our insights through InterSpiritual Meditation. �(4) Integrate these insights into our daily lives.
