Manifesting Your Vision is an advanced program for those who are already deeply informed by their soul imagery and are ready to take steps to embody the vision they have received from Mystery.   This time of gathering the numinous pearls from the Underworld while choosing and engaging a cultural delivery system may be the most challenging time in a soulcentric life.  How does one carry the soul’s image into a culture, which may be oblivious, unreceptive or downright antagonistic toward the gifts offered?  How do we move beyond doubt and fear and accept the necessary psycho-spiritual risks of walking our vision into the world?  What support systems can we develop to keep us on track with living our vision for cultural transformation?

Manifesting Your Vision provides a structure with individual guidance for a full cohort of similarly devoted and determined soulcentric visionaries.  Our group will meet for three days in the spring of 2017 and for two days in the fall. This five-month program will engage each participant in designing a specific project, which will involve apprenticing to and developing a delivery system that brings forth the mythopoetic identity and offers service to one’s people.   Built into the program are three mentorship meetings with an experienced guide plus systems for participants to give and receive support for developing and completing projects.   The program will provide support for identifying and completing practical matters, engaging actively with the soul’s source, and negotiating roadblocks to making a soulcentric offering to the world.

Tools will be offered for:

  • Gathering and clarifying the soul images and gifts from the underworld
  • Choosing one or more delivery systems most aligned with the mythopoetic identity
  • Developing and deepening the relationship between ego and soul
  • Exploring any protective strategies that may be holding you back from delivering your gifts
  • Choosing, developing and progressing with a specific project designed to embody your gifts and offer them to your people (for SAIPiens this may be the My Own Way Elective Project or Practical Application Elective)
  • Exploring your unique way of offering a delivery system

An application process is required for this program.
