Psychotherapy as Care of the Soul A Training in Thomas Moore’s Soul-Based Approach

For psychotherapists, analysts, counselors, coaches, clergy, and others looking to deepen their work.

The word psychotherapy means to serve or care for the soul. In soul-based therapy, we recognize the autonomy of the soul in a person’s life and the way the soul works in contrast to conscious, intended behavior. The soul is central to our humanity, intimate connections, spiritual vision, and pleasure—all of which give meaning and purpose to life. When the life of the deep soul is blocked, we suffer.

Soul-based therapy requires an ability to see what is going on beneath the surface. Since the language of the soul is poetic, we must learn to attune to artistic, literary, mythic, and dream imagery. Alchemy, shamanism, and other esoteric systems also provide rich guidance for soul processes.

Specially designed for mental-health professionals, this program with Thomas Moore explores the journey of becoming a soul-sensitive human being, able to guide others in accessing the soul’s wisdom. Experience an intense immersion in therapy that zeroes in on the deep narratives and themes playing out in a person’s life.

Recommended reading James Hillman, Re-Visioning Psychology; Thomas Moore, Care of the Soul.

Note This program is mainly for practicing counselors, therapists, and other healers, but students of the therapeutic arts and yoga teachers may also be interested.
