About Living a Souful Life

This is an opportunity to work the rich loam of soul on an ongoing basis in a community of practice and care. We have a potent and skilled facilitation team including Erin Geesaman Rabke, Alexandre Jodun, Holly Truhlar, and Carl Rabke. Francis Weller is our main advisor and joins us seasonally, once every three months.

We draw upon the wealth of materials from each of our learning lineages, as well as the teachings Francis has presented over the years, spending the last three years exploring three different series: Living a Soulful Life, The Alchemy of Initiation, and Facing the World with Soul. In our network and live Convivium calls we've built a rich and deep communal web with connections all over the world. It's a true house of belonging that's soulful and sacred, a unique experience that's co-held with compassion and reciprocity.

Each season we explore a theme through weekly Zoom calls with our facilitation team. These include embodiment and creative practices, teaching, ritual, inquiry, and conversation. We also offer weekly practice prompts, select writings, and poetry in the Mighty Network. In April 2024 we're starting our new series "Remembering Forward: Weaving with Ancestors & Future Generations."

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

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 responding to other members in the network. We find the first three months to be foundational to members' experience of Soulful Life; as such we ask all members to commit to at least 90 days within the network.

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

Interested in joining us? Please apply at:


Membership in the Living a Soulful Life network is offered on a sliding scale of $95 - $145/month USD. We also offer $75/month subscriptions for Black & Indigenous People and People of Color (BIPPOC) and for people under 35 years old (younger generations). Every subscription includes the live weekly Convivium gatherings with our team, seasonal sessions with Francis, and access to all materials within the network including Convivium recordings which are available for viewing for 30 days.

*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 most 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 generations of stolen land, lives, and resources, as well as ongoing systemic oppression, that impacts Black and Indigenous People and People of Color.
