with Helen Palmer and Marion Gilbert


Deepening Spiritual Awareness is focused on the transformative potential of your own type structure for higher levels of being. Our format blends the profound somatic practice of grounded presence with contemplative methods for emptying and focusing the mind.

These “skillful means” build an inner capacity to recognize and relax emotional passions as they arise – thus “converting vice to virtue” – the pure life force that sustains us. These spiritual activities will be debriefed from different type perspectives through panel interviews in the Narrative Tradition, short didactics, inner practices, somatic exercises and small groups.
