“You may have success in life, but then just think of it – what kind of life was it? What good was it – you’ve never done the thing you wanted to do in all your life. Go where your body and soul want to go. When you have the feeling, then stay with it, and don’t let anyone throw you off.”

Joseph Campbell

 

The Soulistic Journey Home…

I believe that we are all in search of our soul. Our soul manifested as the unique spark of light that defines and guides us. Our soul expressed as the essence of truth that leads us forward through the noise, distraction, and chaos of the outer world. I have been told that this journey will be unlike any other I have ever designed, co-created or held. It will change us all forever whilst simultaneously reminding us why we have come to this planet right now at this tipping point in human history.

We are here for a reason. We are walking together for a purpose. We are listening.

We are also being led forwards into uncharted territory and as such, any structure of ‘plan’ I might attempt to put around our journey seems like it’s scratching the surface of what actually will happen. However, a core supporting structure has come through! What I have been told is that our quest will begin with an adventure that takes a year & a day…..

 

Where We Begin

Using the ancient, natural cycle of the Wheel of the Year, we will begin at the Winter Solstice by diving into the fabric of the unique human story that we are here to individually and collectively bring to the world.

Over 12 months in four parts delineated by the four major season solstices and equinoxes, we will enter into a deeply personal and transpersonal journey exploring both the physical and metaphysical worlds. Why so long you may ask? Because in my experience real change doesn’t happen overnight. This is not a weekend workshop that promises more than it delivers. Life is not a silver bullet. Life is an ongoing dance. This dance has a structure.

  1. To make real change first, you have to DISCOVER something new that makes you stop and think about yourself and your story in a new way.
  2. From here you LEARN about yourself through study and practice in the real world.
  3. You then PLAY and experiment with different ways of living, loving and working.
  4. Finally, you DO and you PRACTICE.

Practice becomes your evolutionary playground. The canvas for the emerging art of your life. In order to truly transform your story and your world, you must learn and embed the core practices of story-making so that you can be the life writer, creating whatever reality you wish. Not just for a season – permanently.

The Format

This journey is all about real and lasting transformation. It is about giving yourself the time and space to truly reconnect with your unique essence as a sacred human being and to bring this to life in your real-world through experiments, projects and personal challenges. It is about being nurtured and supported by a community of fellow travelers as you adventure through the forests and mountains of your inner landscape. Together we walk as a soul family, giving each other courage and faith to show up as who we are and who we are in the process of becoming.

This journey is unique, as it is co-created and co-designed from the outset. Some topics/adventures will show up through the specific alchemy of the unique group of souls that come together for this quest. We will work together on a monthly basis online through –

  • Zoom webinars
  • Mini quests
  • Online embodiment exercises and
  • Comfort zone challenges.

Externally we will apply our learning through experimentation, inquiry and personally selected projects throughout the year.

Each quarter, we will each apprentice to a Universal Archetype, Sacred Symbol /Geometry that will become our trusted guide, support team, and teacher as we learn and remember to walk in a sacred way.

We will also embark on four (optional) deep dive quests at various locations in the UK throughout the yearly cycle. These will be timed to hit the Imbolc, Beltane, Lammas and Samhain Festivals in February, May, August and October 2021. The purpose of these ‘offline’ face to face retreats is to share and embody the transformations that we are undergoing. The retreats provide the space to deepen into your journey and welcome your emerging gifts in a myriad of tangible ways. This is where we begin to ‘talk our walk’, entering into initiations that transform us from the inside out.

If you embark on this quest, you will be forever changed.

You will become who you came here to be.

LORNA HOWARTH

CO-FOUNDER / PANACEA BOOKS

For eighteen years, I worked as a writer and editor for various publications, including Positive News, Living Lightly magazine and Resurgence, the UK’s foremost magazine on ecology, spirituality and the arts. During this time, I interviewed many inspirational teachers who helped shape my thinking, including Jonathon Porritt, James Lovelock, Deepak Chopra, Vandana Shiva, John Seymour, Anita Roddick and others, although perhaps my foremost teacher was Satish Kumar, the founder of Resurgence, and a Gandhian philosopher and peace activist. Then, in 2008, I joined my friend and colleague the late musician and activist Kenny Young to work as Development Director for the NGO Artists Project Earth which has funded over 350 climate change mitigation projects around the world, as well as supplying emergency funding for disaster relief, such as the Haitian earthquake and the Asian Tsunami. During this time, I was fortunate to attend the international COP Climate Conferences in Copenhagen, Cancun and Durban, seeing first-hand the impenetrable barrier between inter-governmental decision-making and civil society activism. In 2012, I set up my publishing agency, The Write Factor, inspired by the words of my good friend and writer, John Moat, who said, “Your story is imperative to the completion of the all-important ‘Universe Story’. My aim was to help people who fell between the gaps in the traditional publishing industry to tell their stories. At this time, I helped edit, design and publish over 60 books. In 2020 after participating in the Soulistic Journey, I have honed my publishing agency into the imprint, Panacea Books, which specialises in publishing books that 're-imagine the world'. I am also beginning to write my own stories and facilitate the journey of others as they walk the Soulistic Journey.
