What is the Soul
The soul is your most authentic, truest, essential self. Your soul is intimately connected to your heart and thrives on connection, love and authentic expression. Your soul is where you will find your heart’s desire and life purpose. Your greatest personal gifts are accessed at the level of soul. It is the place where you access richness and meaning in life. It is the place where your creativity and beauty resides. It is the timeless, eternal piece of our purest self. Attempting to recover without healing your soul simply does not work.
Healing the Soul
Through trauma and addiction parts of our soul have been lost, taken or given away. As a result we become listless and lifeless. We feel more dead than alive. We live in a society that is out of balance that is making us sick and contributing to mental health issues. Our culture, primarily dominated by the ego, is based on external reference points. Your ego bases your “sense of self” and well-being on something outside of you, over which you have no control. The ego can often obsess on what is lacking in your life, abandonment, old fears, judgment, performance, guilt or shame. Because the ego is based on external factors, it is always looking for the next thing to satisfy it, be it a relationship, a drug or a material possession. The attempt to fill the void within your soul with something outside of yourself will never satisfy you. Our holistic program focuses heavily on healing at the soul level. The soul bases its well-being on internal reference points connected through rites of passage, ceremony, creativity, art, nature, dance and breath.
