The Inner Ark : Digging Deep
Bali Retreat 2017



The premise of this retreat is well articulated by the words of James Hillman in The Soul’s Code: “There is a reason why my unique person is here and there are things I must attend to beyond the daily round and that give the daily round its reason, feelings that the world somehow wants me to be here, that I am answerable to an innate image, which I am filling out in my biography.”

In this course we will explore that innate image: our Inner Ark. We’ll draw on several sources, notably Psychosynthesis (R. Assagioli) and Workways: Seven Stars to Steer By (K. Locher & J. Van Der Brug) – but mostly on the experiences and inspirations that comprise your inner and outer worlds – to provide a seamless journey which draws on the past, the present and the emerging future as it arises from the higher unconscious.

We will revisit and reconnect the life events that have left traces of destiny to
be picked up and carried into the future with meaning and purpose.

Through thoughtful, reflective and creative activities in the company of others seeking to deepen insights into their path, participants can expect to peel back the layers which may obscure a sense of the higher self  in order to enhance their lives.
