Matt's new live online course - Alchemical Healing and Accessing the Wisdom of the Sacred Wound

My new (live) online course - Alchemical Healing and Accessing the Wisdom of the Sacred Wound - will begin on Thursday, March 3rd. Over the course of 7 Thursdays, we'll dive deep into many of the topics that are important to me and my writing, as well as to my clinical work as a psychotherapist.

While I'd love to have you join us live, it is not required as many have other commitments. You can fully participate in the course at your own pace and will receive access to all video, audio, and written course materials shortly after each session. The live sessions will take place on Thursdays at 11am US Pacific time and last around 90 minutes. 

What does it mean to live a meaningful, soulful life in these uncertain times?

Is it possible to step outside the matrix of intergenerational and cultural trance and discover a new sense of aliveness, creativity, and purpose?

The path of transformation is going to be wildly unique for each of us. While we can benefit from the wisdom left behind by the mapmakers, we must make the journey ourselves.

The spiritual and healing paths not spectator sports and we can’t stand on the sidelines and participate from a distance. Something a lot more intimate, creative, and even more alchemical is being asked of us right now.

The discovery of meaning, which is at the very core of the human experience, isn’t preordained or given to us by our families, cultures, or religions, but must be unearthed in the depths of our hearts and vessels of our bodies. 

At times, this soul-mining requires that we go against the status quo and forge a new way. It can feel shaky, uncertain, and tender, and it can be helpful to connect with friends and fellow travelers along the way. 

It is in this spirit of companionship that I'll be offering this new live online course, Alchemical Healing and Accessing the Wisdom of the Sacred Wound: A Deep Dive into a Psychotherapy of the Soul.

During our time together, we’ll explore perspectives from diverse approaches such as depth and somatic psychologies, the meditative traditions, relational neuroscience, and the alchemical imagination, stepping into the teachings and practices that form the heart of my own life and clinical practice.

Even though we’re scattered throughout the planet, in my experience it is possible to come together within a healing relational field and connect deeply with one another, with ourselves, with the heart, and enter into communion as we move out of the winter and into the spring. Out of the darkness and into the light.

The soul is always calling out to us, but often in ways that are hidden to our ordinary perception. It is my hope that our time together will help us connect more deeply with the Inner Guide, the Inner Companion and Friend who is always nearby, shape shifting and taking unexpected forms to call us Home, into a soulful life of deeper purpose, meaning, and aliveness.

I’d love to have you join me, and one another, as we make this journey together.

Hope to see you online soon.
