Co-Facilitators: The Soulful Life Convivium is co-held by Francis Weller and Holly Truhlar, as well as three moderators: Amy Hyun Swart, Erin Geesaman Rabke, and Carl Rabke. While Francis teaches most Wednesdays and the themes we explore are based on his body of work, each of these people are also trusted facilitators within the space.


About Living a Soulful Life

This is an opportunity to work the rich loam of soul on an ongoing basis. We will draw upon the warehouse of materials that Francis Weller has presented over the years, including his Living a Soulful Life 10-week series, In the Absence of the Ordinary: Essays in a Time of Uncertainty, The Alchemy of Initiation: Soul Work and the Art of Ripening 5-week seriesand An Apprenticeship with Sorrow 4-week series.

Each month we'll explore a theme through live zoom calls with Francis, weekly writing prompts on the Mighty Network, select writings and poetry. We'll start with welcomes and introductions where we'll get a lay of the land. Then we'll be exploring the following monthly themes (with additions when called for):

1. The Geography of Soul 
2. The Necessary Wound & Self Compassion
3. Giving Shape to the Universe: The Life of the Imagination
4. Beguiled by Beauty
5. The Third Body: Touching the Mysteries of Love and Friendship
6. Anima Mundi: The Soul of the World, A World Ensouled
7. The Artful Life: The Necessity of Creativity   
8. Ritual, Community and the Sacred
9. Loss and Sorrow, Darkness and Duende
10. Elders, Ancestors and the Eternal

The Soulful Living Network is not a product to be consumed or passive teaching experience, it is a place of reciprocal learning and unlearning. It is a place where we ask people to show up for each other and soul. It’s about not only engaging with the content for yourself personally but also deepening your capacity to witness others.

*While we hope to connect with members often, we do not expect members to participate in every offering. We understand the need for down time & spaciousness. 


Who This Is For

This is an offering for you if you're interested in exploring the depths of soul with like-hearted friends. If you're seeking a space of shelter, encouragement, and compassion. And, if you're hoping to contribute to the communal well-being while finding medicine for the troubling times we're in—"The Long Dark." 

This is a space of reciprocity and participation. This offering is for you if you can commit to participating regularly, attending the live calls or watching the posted recordings most weeks, and practicing with at least one post a week. We ask all members to commit to 90-days within the network and then give us 30-days notice if unsubscribing.

As well, you will need internet access to log-in to the Mighty Network and a basic understanding of Zoom to attend the live weekly zoom gatherings.


Cost

Membership in the Living a Soulful Life network is offered on a sliding scale of $50 - $75/month USD. We also offer $20/month subscriptions for Black & Indigenous People and People of Color and $35/month subscriptions for people under 35 years old. Every subscription includes the live weekly Convivium Calls with Francis and access to all materials within the network. 

*Why we use a sliding scale: We understand access to resources is a result of institutionalized white supremacy, patriarchy, ableism, capitalism and colonization. A sliding scale fee structure allows those who have been systematically harmed by these unjust and inequitable systems to access the Living a Soulful Life network without further disadvantage. As well, by offering significantly discounted subscriptions to BIPPOC we are acknowledging Black & Indigenous People and People of Color for the generations of stolen land + resources and systemic oppression.
