Discover Your Purpose. Find Your Soul's Calling.
Live Your Mythopoetic Identity.
One Interview A Month In Your Inbox
An exclusive monthly video series where we interview some of the world's foremost spiritual teachers, soul and purpose guides, as we ask: What is Soul? What is my purpose? What is my mythopoetic identity? What is Soul calling me to embody? What Vision and Task was I created for? What is the image or symbol at the core of my being?
What is Soul-encounter?
Soul-encounter is not psychotherapy, it won't help you heal old wounds, have better relationships, or make you a well-adjusted person. Soul-encounter isn't Enlightenment, it doesn't bring you the transcendent experience of unitive intimacy with the Mystery, Divine or God. Soul-encounter is the experience of burrowing down into our spiritual uniqueness, beneath the level of personality and ego.
Soul-encounter is that moment when you receive a glimpse of your greater purpose in the web of life. This encounter doesn't answer the question, "who am I?", it answers the question, "where do I belong?", and as the poet Mary Oliver wrote, "what do I do with this one wild and precious life?"
What do you do when you've reached a plateau and you feel called to something beyond the next level of worldly success or personal growth? What happens when the current version of the story of your life has run its course, but you still have so much life yet to live?

This series of interviews with leading experts in the field will help you take the next step on your path as you engage in soul-discovery. With the guidance of teachers who have encountered their own soul-level purpose, you will explore, perhaps for the first time, the undiscovered continents of the mythic story at the center of your soul.
The inquiry, "what is my soul-level purpose?" is not for you if you aren't ready to transcend the story you've created about yourself. The inquiry, "what do I do?" is about discovering your deepest purpose so that you can experience a profound sense of kinship to Earth and Life itself. The inquiry, "what am I made for?" is about finding your specific niche where your inborn soul-powers become available for the transformative work of evolving the world. The inquiry, "what is my place?" is about evolutionary spirituality: becoming artisans of a cultural transformation where humanity evolves beyond its current adolescent pathologies, to take its place in the unfolding Universe Story.
