Here are a couple of excerpts that we are excited about discussing. Attendees are invited to bring your favorite excerpts to share!
We prayed for a miracle.
What we got was a mirror.
(from "In the Deep")
To kin, as we return
To who we were.
Before we actually were
Anything or anyone-
That is, when we were born unhating
& unhindered, howling wetly
With everything we could yet become.
To travel back in time is to remember.
When all we knew of ourselves was love.
(from "Back to the Past")
LEVEL II COURSE
Living Soulfully: A Deeper Dive into Soulfulness-Oriented Practices
10-SESSION CLASS SERIES LIVE ON ZOOM!
SATURDAYS 8:15am - 9:30am Pacific Time
OCTOBER 8th - DECEMBER 17th, 2022
THIS COURSE IS FULL
This course provides a more intensive immersion into soulfulness and the SOUL-centered framework. We will introduce and explore each the soulfulness principles (e.g., Centering, Communion, Calling, Consciousness, Creativity, Courage). We will also engage in practices together from the different soulfulness practice domains (e.g., Body and Breath, Ubuntu, Inner Awareness & Attunement, Collective Wisdom, Creative-Expressive). The goal is to support you in establishing a strong foundation for integrating soulfulness into your healing and wellness practices. All sessions will include time in communal meditation and interactive dialogue focused on applying the soulfulness principles and practices to your own life. Learnings from Dr. Harrell's sabbatical travels to Ghana, Senegal, and Cuba will be integrated. Emphasis will be on the lived experience, healing, and wellness of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC). As such, this first class cycle of Level 2 is for BIPOC participants only.
*Class size will be limited to allow for meaningful connection, sharing, and practice.
*If you haven't taken the Level 1 "Soulful Intro to Mindfulness" class (prerequisite for this Level 2 course), you can take it online. If you enroll in Level 2 first, you will receive a 50% discount for the online Level 1 class.
*The Level 2 course prepares you for Level 3 Soulfulness training coming in 2023 where Dr. Harrell will mentor a small group of wellness, mental health, and educational professionals to work from the SOUL-Centered Practice (SCP) framework!
*Regular Price: $300 for the 10-Session Series
EARLY BIRD DISCOUNT: $229 before Sept 30th (that is just $23/class!)

Meditation is not to escape from society, but to come back to ourselves and see what is going on. Once there is seeing, there must be acting.
