I believe we can learn through exaltation, through ecstasy, through joy and through love. At the same time we
must also keep one eye open, so to speak, on our peace, if we want strength, because strength comes out of
our inner peace
-- Murshid Samuel L. Lewis (Sufi Ahmed Murad Chisti)

SoulWork, a spiritual psychology, supports each human being
to fully embody and manifest one's unique purpose in this lifetime. It brings together the
three primary levels of consciousness -- divine, human, and instinctive -- into a cooperative
and mutually supportive process whereby our inner life may be realized, manifested and shared
with the world.
SoulWork teaches through the psychological and spiritual practices of heart focused and guided meditations, movement,
inquiry, creative arts, dreamwork, sacred dance, and chanting (wazifa and zikr from the Sufi tradition).
