“From Sorrow to Soul: Finding Meaning in a Time of Loss”
A panel discussion with Psychotherapist and Author, Francis Weller;
Jungian Analyst and Senior Climate Scientist, Jeffrey Kiehl;
Educator and Depth Psychology Alliance Director, James Newell;
and Soul-centered Coach and Depth Alliance Founder, Bonnie Bright

“Sorrow” comes from the old English “grief, regret, trouble, care, pain, anxiety.” 2020 has certainly brought its share of these. Best-selling writer of Care of the Soul, Thomas Moore. writes, “Such a time pushes you to the edge of what is familiar and reliable, stretching your imagination.” Robert Romanyshyn, author of The Soul in Grief, suggests that “Grief, if it is endured, can restore to us a sense of the sacred and the holy.”This panel will engage in discussion of how we can work through these difficult emotions and allow the soul to express its deepest meaning.
