Dr Bill Plotkin – The Journey of Soul Initiation: An Introduction for Scientists and Mystics


What is the journey of soul initiation and why is it essential to personal revelation, visionary leadership, and cultural renaissance? 

 

Join  eco-depth psychologist and soul guide, Bill Plotkin, as he introduces a new deep-structure model of  soul initiation and of the  perennial  descent to soul, an essential spiritual adventure that most of the world has forgotten — or not yet discovered. 

 

In this webinar, based on his new book:  ‘The Journey of Soul Initiation: A Field Guide for Visionaries, Evolutionaries, and Revolutionaries’, Bill will describe a stage of human development that has not been previously recognized or illuminated in the contemporary Western world and yet is vital for cultural  renaissance and  the future of our species and our planet.

The most fundamental crisis in the world today is a psychological and spiritual one: a form of arrested human development that has been widespread in most contemporary cultures for thousands of years and has many  culture-decaying  results, including an absence of deep meaning or purpose. All other major crises in our world today — social and racial injustice, addictions and violence, environmental pollution, mass extinction, family dysfunctions, political dysfunctions, climate disruption, endless war — grow out of this bedrock existential loss: so many people experiencing their lives as empty, or suspecting human life, more generally, to be meaningless.

During this session, we’ll explore the journey of soul initiation — a psychospiritual adventure that connects us in the most profound way to the Earth community, catalyzes our deepest experience of personal meaning, and results in our most valuable and fulfilling contribution to life.  Based on the experiences of thousands of people he and his colleagues have guided over the past 40 years, Bill will map the terrain of the five phases of the descent to soul, which includes the dissolution of current identity, the encounter with the mythopoetic mysteries of soul, and the metamorphosis of the ego into a co-creator of life-enhancing culture. He  will also introduce an ecocentric and soulcentric map of the eight stages of human  development and a nature-based  map  of the human psyche.
