ORIGINAL VOICE®

Dark Night of the Soul: Rising Up into the Light

A five-day residential training intensive

with Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés

* Training is Full. Registration is closed and the wait list is full. * 


 

In this new Original Voice® training, Dr. Estés will offer the distinct archetypal motifs she has gleaned from  San Juan de la Cruz/Yepes' ancient work called La Noche Oscura, The Dark Night. She will teach the ten transformative steps to reassemble oneself in the most effective order, so as to be the strongest force of creative soul and vision in both worlds.

OVERVIEW

The intention in creating in-depth Original Voice® trainings is to help directly "untie" in learners their held-back and knotted up creative functions; to explain what fear of creating truly is made of (it's not what most might guess); what success is in its many guises;  ways to lay any of los diablocitos (little devils) to rest; and to calm the ego, and especially to re-bless the soul, so each person can carry through one's callings and dedication to creative life.  Our stories, callings, and works yet to be completed--or begun--are all there, deep inside the psyche, often in many years' readiness, if only one can follow through with each step.

In this new Original Voice® training, Dr. Estés will offer the distinct archetypal motifs she has gleaned from  San Juan de la Cruz/Yepes' ancient work called La Noche Oscura, The Dark Night. She will teach the ten transformative steps to reassemble oneself in the most effective order, so as to be the strongest force of creative soul and vision in both worlds.

The first step into the transformative creative force is sometimes called "the sickening." This is the ego asking the question, "Is this all there is?" and the soul answering, "Go to your true meaning."  And the ego, wandering about, wondering, "How? Where? When? Why? Who? What?"

The other nine steps--from time out of mind, and proven effective--are those that lead to a migration of the psyche to 'another land' where the soul is 'ensouled' firmly in the person, and one's loyalty changes from 'the false love' to visions for/about true self that are sharp, anticipatory, and protected.

This is a gentle invitation to the learner for a transformative, hands-on training with a seminal thinker in crosscultural, archetypal psychology, and effective ethnic healing modalities in the modern world.  Original Voice® learners will be given many of the same practices Dr. Estés developed to bring her five books, twenty-five original spoken word audio series, and countless paintings into the world.

This training intensive on Original Voice® is not psychotherapy nor a substitute for psychotherapy. A brief interview, part of the registration process,  will be required of all new students. Thank you.


WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

• To summon  the highest creative force in your own  psyche, in order to become fully creative without barriers. 

• To sturdify the future by preparing methods for meeting the inevitable challenges that come from within and from outside oneself.

• To know what your genius (in Greek, translated as "angel") wants for and from you, and how that fits the greater mind's plan.


WHO SHOULD ATTEND

Those who wish to express themselves in the most authentic way, to avoid being derivative in work, practice, or expression. 

Anyone interested in exploring the creative process; anyone with a project, a work, or a vision that needs a nudge forward; and all those interested in studying with Dr. Estés, for this is one of her areas of specialty.
