Every individual is unique. Each of us has the tools to heal in very specific ways. When we quieten down in nature and tune into the guidance of our Soul Selves we are directed to the root causes of our problems and to the means for becoming more centred and whole.
I cannot love life deeply and unconditionally until I truly love myself in the same way. My task is therefore both inner and outer. It doesn’t matter if I’m a fisherman, a psychologist or a bus driver, my impact on the collective consciousness and my impact on the people I live and work amongst is magnified exponentially when I am healed from within.
We are each unique, beautiful celestial bodies glowing in the cosmos, and if our glow has dimmed because our actions are dark and violent, hurting the earth and her children, then we are beautiful stars that have been wounded through a lack of love ourselves.
There is nothing any of us can afford to turn away from any longer. We offer you an opportunity to look deeply into your own heart to embrace the sadness, the hardship and the incredible joy of being alive, so that you can stand in your truth with love and gratitude for the journey. Join us on this exploration because as with any traveling into unknown territory, it is always a whole lot more fun when we do it together.
Soul Integration is anchored in a spiritual and historical lineage that stretches backwards through the wisdom of the ages. Marlies Van Boxtel, a Jungian psychoanalyst trained me as a facilitator. She in turn, prior to her Jungian studies, learned session work from Chris Griscom, founder in 1985 of the Light Institute in Galisteo, New Mexico. Chris downloaded much of the material for sessions from her Higher Self and simultaneously drew from her own training in past life regression, meditation and ancient techniques for clearing the emotional patterns that become stuck in our cellular memory.
As in any spiritual lineage, each facilitator learns the techniques for supporting clients by also tapping into their own spiritual guidance for how to bring their unique essence to the lineage transmission. They in turn inspire their students and their clients to access their own inner visions and healing.
The particular flavour of my own practice has developed out of a strong commitment to meditation that was grounded in the Theravadan tradition with my most influential meditation teachers being Kittisaro and Thanissara, the co-founders of Sacred Mountain Sangha.
The facilitators I have trained in turn have added their own essence to their offerings. They have added other diverse sources of inspiration to their work such as cranio-sacral therapy, hypnotherapy, process work, massage, kundalini yoga, Family constellations and midwifery.
This is a living tradition that has a sturdy and structured foundation which nourishes each facilitators unique soul centred offering. All the work is rooted in the wild heart of Mother Earth and it is guided by the ancient wisdom and unhurried pace of the natural world.
has a thirty plus years intensive meditation practice and an art degree. She is a soul integration therapist, a registered midwife, and a certified dance of life facilitator. All of her questing emerged from a longing to understand the sacred mystery of life. She writes about this mystery in her books The Mama Bamba Way, a book about the sacred nature of birth, in The Liminal Lands, an autobiographical account of her own soul journey, and in her novel that is about to be released titled “Elsie October’s Shamanic Adventure”.
Robyn offers different pathways for soul exploration. The Soul Integration Intensives are the most in-depth and transformative offerings. Guided by the Soul Self they reveal the unhealed patterns that distort our blueprints.
Yet despite the serious nature of this transformation process she recognizes that play is one of the highest expressions of spirituality. Her play includes all the illustrations in this website but it also includes facilitating sessions, guiding retreats and negotiating the muddle of everyday life. Even when life is grim, dreary, hopeless and hard to trudge through, it is nevertheless precious because we are always, always held close by our Soul Self if we only turn towards it.
She invites anyone who has a yearning to weave the physical and soulful worlds into a life fully lived on earth to join her in this exploration.
