Soulwork Workshop, David Mallard, President of Melbourne Men’s Group, facilitates a one-day ‘taster’ program for men and women that is rooted in the Soulcraft ™ body of work developed by Bill Plotkin PhD, founder of Colorado’s Animas Valley Institute.
During the day we’ll navigate through the ‘Nature-Based Map of the Human Psyche’ (the ‘Wild Mind’ map) and will explore:
- the integrated field of spirit, mind and soul
- the innate untapped capacities gifted to us by nature (which are largely suppressed by contemporary culture)
- our fragmented and/or wounded parts (the ‘sub-personalities) that limit our uniqueness and authenticity
- how to walk the journey toward wholeness
- the concept and practice of Soul initiation.
As part of the day we will use multiple practices to promote the journey inward that include:
• accessing our deep imagination
• praising the others during a solo wander in the bush
• a consciousness shifting breathwork session and art therapy
Date: Saturday, June 5, 9 AM – 5 PM
What people have said about previous Soulwork workshops:
“One Sunday I put the books down, stopped grasping to understand, and spent a day in the bush with Dave for a Soulwork session. It was a leap of faith well rewarded, a day away from the comfortably familiar, glimpsing what’s “dark to the mind, radiant to the heart”. The Soulwork day offered me space and opportunity to surrender preconceptions about myself, step off my over-examined path, and simply sit back and see what would be revealed. Dave is the perfect guide – relaxed, supportive, experienced but still exploring the path – and the bushland setting a tranquil retreat. I came away raw but euphoric and with a glimpse of a new, sometimes uncomfortable but necessary path toward wholeness. For me, there’s no substitute for what Soulwork day offers. Begin.” Dan
“A day full of discoveries for the mind, the heart, and the body. I felt fed by David’s deep knowledge as well as group conversations and mutual support.” Guillaume
“I want to wake up and escape the Matrix, but not be faced with a world of doom and gloom!” That’s a possibility I feel after spending the day learning about Soulwork. It offers a way to get around our ego and unconscious programming and go deeper into our true identity. To find out who we were born to be and the gifts we have to offer! I left excited, excited at the potential, excited to learn more and excited to be a little more awake! I would recommend this work to anyone and everyone, young or elder, who knows that there is more to this life! I can’t wait to do more!” Shane
