"The most difficult endeavor is not to create something. The most difficult endeavor is not even to begin. The most difficult is to keep rowing all the way through to completion. And this, in spades, is the content of the night-sea journey... making the descent to true self, nourishing the work from that locus of control, and completing the work. Then beginning the next, and the next... and completing them."

Dr. C.P. Estés, Creative Fire manuscript

The intention in creating in-depth Original Voice® trainings is to help directly 'untie' in learners their held-back and knotted up creative functions; to explain what fear of creating truly is made of [not what most might guess], what success is in its many guises, and ways to lay any los diablocitos [little devils] to rest; to calm the ego, and especially to re-bless the soul, so each person can carry through one's callings and dedication to creative life.  Our stories, callings, and works yet to be completed--or begun--are all there, deep inside the psyche, often in many years readiness, if only one can follow through with each step.

In this new Original Voice® training, Dr. Estés will offer the distinct archetypal motifs she has gleaned from  San Juan de la Cruz/Yepes' ancient work called La Noche Oscura, The Dark Night. She will teach the ten transformative steps to re-esemble oneself in most effective order, so as to be the strongest force of creative soul and vision in both worlds.

The first step into the transformative creative force is sometimes called "the sickening"....this is, the ego asking the question, "Is this all there is", and the soul answering, "Go to your true meaning."  And the ego, wandering about, wondering "How? Where? When? Why? Who? What?"

The other nine steps, time out of mind, and proven effective, are those that lead to a migration of the psyche to 'another land'---where the soul is 'ensouled' firmly in the person, and one's loyalty changes from 'the false love' to visions for/about true self that are sharp, anticipatory, and protected.

This is a gentle invitation to the learner for a transformative, hands-on training with a seminal thinker in crosscultural, archetypal psychology, and effective ethnic healing modalities in the modern world.  Original Voice® learners will be given many of the same practices Dr. Estés developed to bring her five books, twenty five original spoken word audio series, and countless paintings into the world.

  • Summoning of the highest creative force in your own  psyche, in order to become fully creative without barriers.
  • To sturdify the future by preparing  methods for meeting the inevitable challenges that come from within and from outside oneself.
  • Calling:  To know what your genius [in Greek, translated as 'angel'] wants for and from you, and how that fits the greater mind's plan.

"....as it ought be for every soul, for you are a treasure-filled being, come to earth  and walking amonst us, I believe, as 'a blessing filled with blessings'--for self and for our world.  The longer I live, rather than becoming uncertain, I do not believe, I know, that all souls are born gifted, and are meant to be so, for the sake of the Heart and Soul of our World."

I hope to see you face-to-face soon.
with love,
dr. e
