What is the course about?
What is the ‘Soul’? This course will use concepts from Jungian Psychology as an introduction to this.
This workshop is about developing a safe containing space for you to identify what ‘Soul’ may mean for you and how this can manifest itself.
We will explore the implications this may have for both our personal and professional lives, and how we may cultivate ‘Soul’ in our everyday lives.
