This website is intended as a resource to assist enquirers into and seekers of conscious spiritual awareness.
What is conscious spiritual awareness?
While there are many definitions for conscious spiritual awareness, Ron Pevny, director of the Centre for Conscious Eldering provides a very succinct and useful interpretation:
“We are multidimensional beings whose wholeness depends on the integration of body, mind, emotions, and spirit. The spiritual dimension of ourselves - our soul - is the source of our glimpse of the big picture in which each have a critical role. Intuitively, consciously aging can open new doorways to a deeper, more meaningful balance of an inner and outer life expression, of who we really are!”
The Pathways page presents some thoughts on why one might embark on a spiritual pathway and some opportunities for development of your understanding, knowledge and experiences which may assist in conscious spiritual awareness. The Resource Centre provides an overview of how the resources are organised on the site. The Resources Menu (on the left hand side of most pages on the site) will link you directly to a list of books, videos, articles, websites and courses which you may find useful. The Activities page presents information about a number of different workshops, discussion groups and courses which may assist you along your pathway. There is a link in the Resources Menu to the latest Soul Work Pathways Bulletin, distributed quarterly. Each Pathways Bulletin contains information about newly discovered resources, conferences, workshops and seminars, book reviews and more. If you would like to receive the Bulletin by email, enter your email address in the "Subscribe"box on the Pathways Bulletin page. Contact Philip if you would like to make a contribution.
What is the Soul Work Pathways Project?
The Soul Work Pathways project is one of both personal development and a service to the community on a non-profit basis. See About for a description of the aims for the site.
In 2012, following a deep spiritual yearning to contribute to the raising of public awareness about conscious spiritual awareness, I began collating relevant literature and other materials. These materials formed the basis of the Soul Work Ensemble website which was built around the notion of conscious ageing. At 69 years of age, this concept seemed useful and valuable at the time.
Today, like many other truth seekers, I am still trying to find the real self! So with further study, research and thinking came a broader appreciation of other areas which also encourage conscious spiritual awareness. It seemed that there are many pathways which an individual can follow in their search for the whole self and in creating the balance of inner and outer life expression. Click here for more details of my journey. Soul Work Pathways therefore reflects part of a life long journey in pursuit of conscious spiritual awarenessinvolving research, exploration, practices and experiences. It provides a snapshot of suggested resources to wisdom, knowledge and relevant conscious spiritual practices in making this world, and beyond, a better place.
I hope you find the thoughts and resources on this site to be useful. I warmly welcome your feedback and wish you well on your own journey.
