Jean Shinoda Bolen – Your One Wild and Precious Life: Imagination, Activism, Creativity—Soul Work!
The Sophia Institute would like to welcome back Jean Shinoda Bolen to our hometown of Charleston, SC, March 20-21, 2020.
The premise of Jean’s Jungian and spiritual perspective begins with the certainty that it matters what we do with our “one wild and precious life,” a quote from the poet, Mary Oliver. Most of us have an innate sense that there is a purpose to life related to the idea that life is a soul journey. To do what we came to do and be who we were meant to be is not so easy; especially in the midst of unchosen circumstance. Vulnerability and loss are both mythic and deeply personal experiences, as is aging. What now? Jung’s individuation, Campbell’s finding your personal myth, the hero or heroine’s journey, Persephone’s abduction into the underworld, Hecate at the crossroad, are archetypal patterns that can provide insights to support us on our journeys. Imagination precedes change—psyche is activated by stories, role models, and dreams that touch soul. Passion and imagination precedes creativity, healing, activism on behalf of ourselves and others. In being true to what deeply matters to us, we become who we were meant to be.
