Publisher Comments:

For millennia, ceremonies and initiation rites have helped societies survive and thrive by marking life transitions. In contemporary America, except for bar mitzvahs, graduations, and weddings, these rituals are conspicuous by their absence. Written for people in search of their true selves — particularly those on the verge of adulthood and those at a major crossroads such as divorce or career change — Soulcraft restores the ritual to its rightful place as a crucial part of personal growth and self-empowerment. Exercises and insightful stories explain how to discover one's unique gift, or "soul purpose," to be shared with others through a ceremonial event. Drawing on ancient traditions, this vision quest serves as a modern rite of initiation that helps people find their life purpose.

Synopsis:

Since 1980, Jungian psychologist Bill Plotkin has been guiding men and women into the wilderness — the redrock canyons and snow-crested mountains of the American Southwest — but also into the wilds of the soul. He calls this work soulcraft.

Theres a great longing in all people — a longing to uncover the secrets and mysteries of our individual lives, to find the unique gift we were born to bring to our communities, and to experience our full membership in the more-than-human world. This journey to soul is a descent into layers of the self much deeper than personality, a journey meant for each one of us, not just for the heroes and heroines of mythology.

A modern handbook for the journey, Soulcraft is not an imitation of indigenous ways, but a contemporary nature-based approach born from the landscape of the Southwest, the traditions of Western culture, and the cross-cultural heritage of all humanity. Filled with stories, poems, and guidelines, Soulcraft introduces over 40 practices that facilitate the descent to soul, including dreamwork, wilderness vision fasts, talking across the species boundaries, council, self-designed ceremony, nature-based shadow work, and the arts of romance, storytelling, and soul-infused poetry.

Truly exceptional step-by-step instruction for connecting to Soul. Rather than focusing exclusively on intellect and Spirit so common in Western society, Plotkin gives concrete advice for going deep into feeling, sensing, and connecting to the earthier parts of our selves. I will definitely be digesting this book again next year and highly recommend it to everyone ready to find their own Soul and its purpose.

Thick and meaty, Soulcraft is a multi-course meal for the soul. What a tremendous gift this book is, especially for those of us who cannot attend one of Plotkin's workshops in Colorado. Soulcraft includes numerous thoroughly descriptive exercises to help one on the path to a deeper connection with soul. Very thankful Plotkin shared his decades of experience in this format, making it available on a large scale at a time when the world really needs us all to dive into ourselves to emerge the best we can be. Must read for anyone on a spiritual journey!!!

I struggle with words to best describe this book... absolutely incredible, life changing, monumental. I could go on- but I bet you get the picture. This book so simply lays out a path to recreating your life from the ground up, in a wholesome and organic way. It does not sugarcoat the process. It's work, you need to fully commit yourself to finding your true spirit while surrounded by the wonders of nature. Just weeks after reading this book, I embarked on a wonderful journey high in the White Mtns of California to find the true meaning of MY life- something I could not have done had I not read this book and been inspired so greatly by it. One thing to note, there are many organizations that run the kind of program the author speaks of in this book, I suggest sitting down and searching on the internet for the right one for you should you feel so compelled. Buy this book, read it, and pass it on to a loved one, a friend or a neighbor! You will not be disappointed.
