The Mystery of the Soul

With Margie Gillis and Thomas Atum O'Kane, PhD

July 17 - 22, 2022

The mystery of the soul can be embraced, experienced, danced, and explored but never exhausted or diminished. Carl Jung said “The great spiritual illness of our time is the loss of soul.”

“I left reconnected with and nurtured by my own soul” – 2019 participant

Margie Gills and Thomas Atum O’Kane have spent their lives engaged in soulful journeys and callings. Margie has enveloped countless people in the mystery through dance, choreography, and teaching movement. Atum has embraced the soul through teaching about the great spiritual traditions, spiritual practices, and Jungian Psychology.

Together they invite you into reclaiming The Mystery of the Soul.
