Lecture with Dr. Jean Shinoda Bolen -Coming into the world with the capacity for awe and wonder, we are receptive to the numinous, and have worshiped divinity in countless forms throughout the millennia. A profound sense of connection and meaning often accompanies the numinous and is Gnostic rather than intellectual. It is a spiritual encounter achieved through active imagination, dreams and physical revelations.
Jean Bolen invites us to remember and connect with our inner compass. The awakening of conscious awareness allows us to trust in knowledge coming to us in the midst of a potentially terminal illness. It may be heart chakra information: what our heart knows is true for us. The most difficult experiences may be opportunities to align with soul – opportunities to recognize the divine spark in others and ourselves.
