Eco-Psyche-Artistry was founded in 2013 by Dr. Brian Stafford in order to support mature human development, reconnect individuals with the natural world, and bring Soulcraft™ skills and practices to Central America. Mature human development is rare in western culture. What is lacking are rites of passage, time in the natural world, true elders, and guides to the Mystery. Soulcraft™ skills and practices evoke the world-shifting experience of soul encounter — the revelation of our unique mythopoetic identity, an identity expressed through symbol and metaphor, image and dream, archetype and myth, an identity embodied in a mysterious story that whispers to us in moments of expanded awareness and exquisite aliveness. The shape and rhythm of this story reveals the hidden treasure that each of us carries for the world — a world longing for the transformative contributions of visionary leaders and artisans of cultural renaissance. Soulcraft practices spring from wilderness rites, depth psychology, ecopsychology, the poetic tradition, nature-based peoples, and from the wild Earth itself — and comprise a contemporary, Western, and nature-rooted path to the terra mysterium of soul initiation. Eco-Psyche-Artistry now provides this work in Central and Southern California.
