Pilgrim SoULL Unit 1 (School of Unusual Life Learning): The Nature of Being Human
This training will introduce a language of human life itself, integrating the processes of aging and dying into an overview of human development. Through direct teaching and experiences, students will learn to see spiritual, energetic and somatic experience as deeply, inevitably connected, and discover the continuity of life (or “Life Movement”) within the body and psyche.

The School of Unusual Life Learning (SoULL) is a multi-level somatically focused program about human life which helps you take your own life and work to a new level of depth and presence. SoULL’s primary task is to connect human helpers, healers and creatives with wisdom teachings sourced from the natural world so that they first recognize themselves and others as natural and find radical applications of this awareness. We live in much greater separation from Nature in our time than any other time in history. We seldom recognize ourselves as being actually a part of it. We fear change and death to extraordinary degrees, and resist the natural changes of our bodies, psyches or relationships. SoULL is a remedy for this distress that powerfully changes student’s outlooks on their own life and how professionals approach their human service work.
A primary goal of Pilgrim SoULL is to teach students to recognize the deep, energetic patterns within the life of the human being regardless of culture or race. It teaches how life energy naturally shapes us through every stage of bodily life, including its end. I call this our common human “Life Language”. It presents radical insights, not only on individual human life, but on relationships, community, and the deep, intrinsic connection between them. In its essence, Pilgrim SoULL is an initiation which teaches about birth, death, all that is between and after, the body, energy, how we grow, change, connect, release, die and love.

I am a transpersonal and somatic psychotherapist, educator, a hospice worker, healer, author of The Effects of Compassionate Presence on the Dying, and founder of the School of Unusual Life Learning (SoULL).
Since leaving an engineering career 17 years ago, I have worked in many venues to help people fearlessly embrace a life which includes aging, dying and nature. This has involved years at bedsides with the elderly and children, in study and research, in contributing pioneering ideas to somatic psychology, in death and grief work, teaching, and years helping create and facilitate the Art of Dying projects in New York City.
I believe my insights on energy and the body through aging, illness, and dying are unique because they have been derived from this wide lens of human experience and a deep understanding of our mortal journey.
