Mentoring with Peter Scanlan

 

Working with a mentor or coach can be invaluable in the ongoing journey to soul. Because our culture has so little support for soul work, one of the most valuable experiences that I offer as a mentor is to listen deeply to the unfolding story of your journey, and to serve as a powerful mirror—reflecting back the unique aspects of your path, honoring the steps taken, helping gather the insights and meaning of what has unfolded, and assisting in co-creating the tasks of the next steps. Mentoring sessions also often provide increased support and motivation for completing tasks.

 

Mentoring sessions can be in-person at my office or by phone. Frequency of sessions is determined by the mentee. If you are interested in exploring whether mentoring is right for you, please contact me by email (peterscanlan@comcast.net).

 

Possible aspects of mentoring:

  • Nature-based work using the four-direction Map of the Psyche

  • Mining the story of your wounding for the gifts embedded there

  • Discovering the mythic elements of your deeper life story

  • Enhancing your wholeness

  • Exploring ancestral energies and influences

  • Tasks on the land between sessions

  • Dream work

  • Deep imagery

  • Shadow work

  • Exploration of the decision to take the journey of death/rebirth in order to discover your core self, the bigger story of your life that reveals the unique gifts you carries for your people

  • Follow-up work for those who have enacted a vision quest or for those who want to incorporate soulcraft practices into any kind of personal work that they have already done

Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you — because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answers.
