According to author and eco-depth psychologist Bill Plotkin, the most fundamental crisis in the world today might be a psychological and spiritual one: the loss of meaning or purpose. All other major crises in our world today — social and racial injustice, addictions and violence, environmental pollution, mass extinction, family dysfunctions, political dysfunctions, climate disruption, war — grow out of this bedrock existential loss: so many people experiencing their lives as empty, or suspecting human life, more generally, to be meaningless.
Many people are searching for meaning but too many are looking in the wrong places. On Friday, February 19, 2021, Bill Plotkin joined us on ConnectIONS Live to explore the journey of soul initiation — a psychospiritual adventure that has the potential to connect us in the most profound way to both the Earth community and the source of our deepest humanity.
Based on his latest book release The Journey of Soul Initiation: A Field Guide for Visionaries, Evolutionaries, and Revolutionaries, Bill presented a map of the terrain of the five phases of the Descent to Soul, a map based on the most important things he has learned during his 40 years of designing and guiding a contemporary, Western approach to adult initiation.
We invite you to watch a recording of this webinar where Bill gives us insights into something that most of the world has forgotten, or not yet discovered, a journey that can enable people to grow whole and wild in a way that has become rare — and yet is vital for cultural renaissance and for the future of our species and our planet.
This video is available to the public through Friday, February 26, 2021. After that date, it will be available to IONS Members.
