Conversations

At SQC, conversation refers to an engagement with all things around us and all that we encounter within and without – it is not simply a verbal exchange between two humans, but rather, a deep engagement with the layers of the Self, and equally, a deep engagement with the animate world.

Two primary categories of conversation with which we work at SQC are:

Wild Conversations refers to offerings designed to engage in Self-healing and wholeness practices. Particular focus is placed on exploring the four facets of the Self, or the four dimensions of innate human wholeness – and equally, the four sets of fragmented or wounded parts that form during childhood.  These conversations are directed at cultivating the four facets of the Self and discovering the gifts in our wounded parts.

Soulful Conversations refers to practices that focus on the descent to soul and the deeper layers beneath consciousness. These conversations involve introductions to and deepening with Soulcraft™ practices designed for tracking traces of soul and the way(s) one’s soul journey unfolds. In soulful conversations, focus is placed on images, symbols and other signs that lay within the unconscious - with the aim to gain insight into one's truest gifts and purpose.

 

Program and Mentorship Offerings

All of our work – individual or group – is directed towards deep immersion in Wild and Soulful Conversations. In support of this, we offer a variety of program formats to meet the needs of many:

  • 2-hour workshop sessions
  • Half-day and full-day options
  • Weekend retreats that allow for deeper immersion.

Mentorship - individual sessions for those called to deepen their engagement with soul and to further the transformation process prior to and following group programs.  We have found that the combination of programming and mentorship is invaluable in helping participants become empowered to lead more fulfilling and meaningful lives.

Description: The Wild Conversations day programs will be based on Bill Plotkin’s book, Wild Mind: A Field Guide to the Human Psyche, this program is an experiential exploration of our internal resources and untapped potentials.  We will discover the resources of the four facets of Self, or the four dimensions of human wholeness. We will also explore the way the facets of Self can support the process of healing our fragmented or wounded parts (subpersonalities) formed during childhood.  As we more fully embody our multifaceted minds, we are better able to access and commit ourselves to our deepest longings.

Using depth psychology and nature-based Soulcraft™ practices, including solo exercises while wandering on the land, creative expression, deep imagery work, council, and journaling, we will discover:

  • Practices for engaging in conversation with the land, and the way this conversation leads to a deeper conversation with Self
  • Strategies for cultivating the four facets of the Self and beginning to integrate them into your everyday life
  • Practices for identifying the subpersonalities and cultivating the relationships between Self and subpersonalities – enabling you to heal your subpersonalities; discover their gifts, and foster Self-actualization
