SOULARIZE 2018: Soul Purpose…

October 18, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - October 21, 2018 @ 1:00 pm

OCT 18-21 SOUL PURPOSE… Inhabiting Our Unique Psycho-Ecological Niche.

This year the annual Illuman National Meeting will take place again in Albuquerque, NM, at the Hyatt Tamaya resort hotel.  Over 350 men from all Illuman chapters across the U.S. and other countries will gather for four days of teaching, council work, ritual, ceremony, workshops, storytelling and personal connecting.  The meeting this year is a special collaboration between Illuman and Animas Valley Institute founded by wilderness soul guide and depth psychologist, Bill Plotkin, author of Soulcraft, Nature and the Human Soul, and Wild Mind.  All men are invited to Soularize 2018: Soul Purpose…, whether or not you are new to the Illuman movement or have been involved for many years.

“Everyone yearns for — and needs — a purpose that can be embodied, a meaning that can be lived. Our mortality demands it of us. Our love for our own life, for all living things, and for community pours itself into the world, like a prayer, through our deepest purpose. But what we mean by and experience as “purpose” depends on our stage of life and our depth of psychospiritual development. In the contemporary Western world, when people speak about personal life purpose, most everyone means a mix of social, vocational, political, and/or religious goals or intentions. A much smaller group means a desire to awaken to the divine, nondual, or the universal. But there’s a third variety of purpose that is very rarely considered, that has no place or presence in mainstream Western consciousness, that is completely absent from contemporary maps of human life, even the maps of specialists in human development, including those who write about and guide “integral” development. And yet this is the single most essential realm of purpose, especially in our current critical and liminal moment in the unfolding of the world’s story–” –Bill Plotkin.
