Soularize 2018—
Soul Purpose: Inhabiting Our Unique Psycho-Ecological Niche

Everyone yearns for—and needs—a purpose that can be embodied, a meaning that can be lived. Our gathering will help us look at our purpose from a very different vantage point rarely considered: that of the more-than-human world. How can we more fully engage this essential realm of purpose, personally and communally, in the unfolding of the world’s story in this liminal time and space? Noted author, wilderness guide, and depth psychologist, Bill Plotkin, will be our guide on this exciting and challenging journey.

About Bill

Bill Plotkin, Ph.D., is a depth psychologist, wilderness guide, and agent of cultural evolution. As founder of western Colorado’s Animas Valley Institute in 1981, he has guided thousands of women and men through nature-based initiatory passages, including a contemporary, Western adaptation of the pan-cultural vision quest.  Bill is the author of Soulcraft: Crossing into the Mysteries of Nature and Psyche (an experiential guidebook), Nature and the Human Soul: Cultivating Wholeness and Community in a Fragmented World (a nature-based stage model of human development through the entire lifespan), and Wild Mind: A Field Guide to the Human Psyche (an ecocentric map of the psyche — for healing, growing whole, and cultural transformation). He has a doctorate in psychology from the University of Colorado at Boulder.
