The ego is much misunderstood and maligned in spiritual traditions. Rather than viewing the concept of an ego as a gift of which we can make exquisite use in our physical incarnation, the advice is usually to “fight with” and even “annihilate” it.
- Develop a more comprehensive concept of what is meant by “ego” psychologically and mystically.
- Become more appreciative of the spiritual as well as psychological value of the ego when understood more holistically.
- Develop a more holistic approach of working to “expand the ego” by integrating feminine and masculine principles and becoming more collaborative, engaged, curious, and welcoming with our ego parts.
- This offering will be an experiential as well as discussion-oriented series. It will integrate concepts and experiences from both psychology and mysticism and suggest ways of integrating what is learned into our attitudes, relationships, and behavior. This series is suitable for beginners or more advanced seekers, and no prior knowledge is necessary. In fact, curiosity and an open mind and heart are the only prerequisites.
We hope you will join us and explore a new way to envision and use one of our greatest gifts.
