Anatomy of the Soul with Reverend Marie-Elsa Roche Bragg (3 Sessions)
In many religious and philosophical traditions there is a belief that our soul is the essence of our lives. Carl Jung talked about humans as well as every aspect of living nature being ‘ensouled.’ But how can we distinguish between our soul and our spirit or hold the understanding of our individual soul in the face of the collective?
In this three-week course we will use the Kabbalistic Tree of Life to explore the inner place of the soul and the different levels within it. By the third week, we will have described something of what it is to sit within our soul and contemplate life.
‘Since love grows within you, so beauty grows. For love is the beauty of the soul.’ – Saint Augustine
