The aim of Cultivate Wholeness Training is to promote personal and cultural regeneration by offering impactful developmental experiences. We acknowledge that ‘what we are made of is the stuff of nature’.
Cultivate Wholeness Training acknowledges that: ‘Eco collapse brings with it ego collapse. Fundamental advances in our collective psyche are now imperative. We cannot repair the earth without healing ourselves and our relationship with the rest of life’. (Duane Elgin in Choosing Earth)
Our programs are inspired in part by the Soulcentric principles of the Nature Based Map of the Human Psyche – as developed by Bill Plotkin and the team of the Animas Valley Institute (AVI) of Colorado.
Cultivate Wholeness Training does not offer or promote AVI programs – please refer to soulcraftanz.com for AVI programs in Australia and New Zealand.
The Nature Based Map of the Human Psyche is founded in wisdom teachings from around the world; using the seven directions – north, south, east, west, up, down, and center – it describes the facets of innate human potential, illustrates the ‘Self’, and identifies the qualities of nature that can be found in each direction. The immature forms of these are defined as ‘subpersonalities’, that work to hijack and distort our psyche.
The first premise of this work is that the key to healing and to growing whole is not suppressing symptoms, eliminating wounds, or eradicating subpersonalities, but, rather, cultivating our wholeness – the horizontal wholeness of the Self as well as the vertical wholeness offered by our relationship with Soul and Spirit.
The second core premise is an affirmation that there’s a vital and synergistic relationship between cultivating personal wholeness and building life-enhancing cultures.
The third premise clarifies the imperatives of a healthy, mature culture: protecting the environment; developing adequate numbers of true adults and elders to nurture, educate, and initiate the next generations; creating or revitalising cultural practices; and protecting the wholeness of the culture’s individual members.
Enriching your life begins with engaging your self.
