Spirit Paths: The Quest for Authenticity
Online Module One
Finding and expressing your authentic self—who you really are, your essential self—in every aspect of your life does not happen overnight.
It takes awareness, it takes some effort, and it takes rethinking how you look at and think about life. Because of this, I created an online version of the Spirit Paths program. I've presented the program live since 2008 to more than 75 people in small groups. Many call the program "life-changing."
The online content has been compressed into 20 weeks. Each week you receive a video from me on the key content of the lesson, and/or exercises and informational materials drawn from the live program.
The modules include:
Serpent: The Path of Awareness: About awareness and perception. In this chapter you initiate the process to deconstruct the way that you build your awareness. In that process, you also learn new ways to "see" the world as a whole–more balanced and powerful ways that will lead to change.
Wolf: The Path of the Hunter: Addresses how perception is used most properly and more helpfully than you have been taught all of your life. As a Hunter, Wolf's abilities to process information, form accurate strategies, and move stealthily in new and remarkable ways make consciousness an ally, rather than an enemy.
Each module works through the Five Minds, offering insights that you can use every day to gain a better understanding and experience of the unfolding of your life.
But this course ISN'T for everyone.
You're a great fit if:
- You're seeking a better understanding of yourself
- You're searching for more meaning in your life
- You're wanting to develop more authentic relationships
- You have a strong desire for personal development
- You're feeling "off your path"
- You're wanting to "reboot" your life
- You're not willing or able to devote 2 hours a week to doing the work
- You're a dabbler in personal development work
- You're looking for a "quick fix" to your life situation
- You're not willing to change in unpredictable ways
You can learn more about the full course (all 20 weeks) from the live program description. See the short video for an overview. I look forward to having you join us if you feel this program is a good fit for you.
