Welcome to Soul-Guide.com

with Jonathan Hooton

The soul is the essence of any one or any thing. The "spiritual soul" is that aspect of soul through which we experience the divine, the mystery of life, a greater whole. It is the bridge between our personality, in its physical manifestation, and the divine. The process of becoming more soul conscious is one of relating and identifying with the three essential qualities of Truth, Beauty, and Goodness. These are expressed as Empowerment, Love and Light. These qualities transcend the dualities we live in where we usually identify with one or other pole: Empowerment transcends the duality of power-over/power-under (or victim/perpetrator); Love, as expressed in compassion, courage and unconditional love, transcends love/fear and love/hate; and Light, through inclusive thinking, transcends us/them thinking, such as racial or gender prejudice.

When we are connected with and moved by these aspects of soul, life has purpose. Living that purpose brings meaning to what we do and connects us to a larger whole. Being directed by our soul purpose is often revealed as a passion, is inherently joyful, and is of service to others. Soul always encourages us to manifest in new and creative ways; no sooner do we settle into a way of being then we are 'asked' to open to new ways and to new perceptions. Soul seeks relationships that are equal, collaborative and synergistic - soul partnerships. We are authentic, authors of our own lives, when moving with Soul.

Many people in our present Western culture are disconnected from this felt sense of being - so disconnected that many are also not aware of this inner energy and sense of direction that has been variously named as the "still voice within," "inner teacher," "inner guide," "true self," "inner light," and "spark of the divine," to name a few from some spiritual traditions.

While this website is here to act as a guide and to assist you in connecting with soul, it is the soul that is your guide to your living a life of purpose and meaning. By stopping and being present, paying tender attention to our inner depths, we contact that soul guidance.

Training/Course

FACILITATOR TRAINING IN FAMILY AND SYSTEMIC CONSTELLATIONS:
AN EMBODIED RELATIONAL TRAUMA-RESPONSIVE APPROACH
4 FIVE DAY SESSIONS IN 2022
in
EDMONTON, ALBERTA, CANADA

Monday 6th - Friday 10th June 2022
Monday 12th - Friday 15th September 2022
Monday 5th - Friday 9th December 2022
Monday 13th - Friday 17th March 2023

While this course is focused on learning about the principles of Family and Sytemic Constellations and on building facilitation skills, these principles and skills are helpful in working in other fields besides family and systemic constellations, and in life in general. The emphasis on personal growth and the underlying issues that affect all of us as humans leads to a wider and deeper perspective and understanding of the human experience and a more compassionate stance.
