In Search of Aphrodite:

Eros and the Spiritual Life

What IS Eros?  What does it have to do with our relationship to the Divine? What role does Eros play in the journey of becoming exactly who we were meant to be? How does Eros move us toward wholeness? How can the energies of Eros be harnessed for creativity, devotion and a soul-centered sexuality?

Eros is the spark of life.  It motivates us to extend ourselves bewyond our limited ego identities, beyond the stories we tell ourselves.  It draws us into a deeper understanding of our Soul Print.  Eros challenges us with the most powerful shadow work of our lives.  Eros is at play in our romantic attractions and sexual desires, and we are often bewildered by the loss of Eros in long-term relationships.  While we often associate Eros with our romantic selves, it is also at the root of our creativity, our passion for justice, and our spiritual seeking.  Holy Eros draws us into passionate encounters with that profound, creative force we call God and ever deeper into the Soul's mysteries.

Chelsea Wakefield, PhD, LCSW is a Jungian oriented psychotherapist, the director of the Rowe Certification Program in Spiritual Guidance, author of Negotiationg the Inner Peace Treaty: Becoming the Person You Were Born to Be and most recently In Search of Aphrodite: Women, Archetypes, and Sex Therapy.  She will join us to engage in a compelling exploration of Eros and the spiritual life.  Please visit Chelsea's website here to learn more about her and how to order her books.
