The Wisdom Year is a year long commitment to a practice in rediscovery in a small community
of like minded seekers.
- reducing estrangement
- finding reunification
for all genders
As Carl Jung taught, and Stephen Jenkinson says, "we are relentlessly orphans"
estranged from our wisdom traditions, the divine within and around us, our ancestors,
and our true selves.
The post-modern life is quite persuasive, convincing us again and again that we can gain
sufficient spiritual meaning from wealth, technology, consumption, and addiction.
It sells us on avoidance, on a denial of the love & loss that is inextricably ingrained in our intimacy
with others and in the ultimate intimacy, death.
The Wisdom Year, 2024 is a commitment opportunity for you.
It is a significant commitment to self and the soulful life that is quite adamant
about what must be lived through you.
Your families and community will benefit from these ripples you create for yourself.
We will form an intimate cohort and draw upon wisdom traditions, Carl Jung and modern teachers like: Pema Chodron, Joseph Campbell, Richard Rohr, Joanna Macy, Wendell Berry, Bill Plotkin, Francis Weller, Stephen Jenkinson and more
When is the best time "to save the only life you could save?"*
the answer is: at once
Why this may be for you?
Immersion into wisdom traditions, discourse, council sharing and retreat practices can reinvigorate a soul connection with your inner life, supplement and improve existing spiritual or self-care practices, and bridge you into deeper and more fulfilling inner work in the future.
