This Spirit section focuses on identifying, exploring, affirming, deepening, evolving, and/or transforming what inspires us and gives us meaning. From a holistic perspective, tapping into inspiration and meaning can happen in many ways, but the topics listed below have been particularly helpful for me. They also can support our efforts to address some of the challenges in the initial cycle of the Heroine/Hero’s Journey – the Call.
While exploring Spirit, as used here, we move within Ann Hale’s sociometric cycle from spring to summer and within Jean Houston’s model into the state of connecting with ‘I Am’ – the dimension of Spiritual Mystery.
We still belong to ourselves, but we’ve heard the Call and are starting to disconnect from some of the ways others have come to expect us to be. To do that, we must tap into our deepest resources of inspiration and meaning – into the ‘I Am’, or Spiritual Mystery, dimension of our life.
