with Sweigh Emily Spilkin
Join us via livestream or in person if you live in Boulder, CO.
You are here for a reason. And what you perceive to be a mistake (pain, suffering, trauma, illness) is not a mistake at all. It’s a radical opportunity to crack open, catalyze your potential, and embody who you really are. An opportunity you would have never consciously chosen, but if you are struggling in your life, something led you here: to the underworld. The purpose in the underworld is not simply to “get better,” the purpose is to allow yourself to be initiated. To let go of who you thought you were so that who you really are can emerge.
The dark night of the soul, the wounded healer’s path, spiritual illness, the Hero’s Journey, initiation—whatever we call it—life offers us radical opportunities for spiritual development through our greatest challenges, and it’s our job to take them. But many of us don’t know how.
In her debut livestream, Sweigh will offer the principals, practices, and tools for using illness, loss, trauma, and spiritual crisis as the doorways into your Great Work in the world.
This talk is not about healing. It is about wholing. About growing up our relationship with ourselves, with the Divine, and with life. It’s about becoming fully initiated adults ready to offer our Great Work to the world.
At times of great suffering we can either fragment or alchemize our pain and transform. Let’s transform.
