Cultivating A Soul Centric City: Co-Creating a Uniquely Louisville Area Path, Practices, and Practitioners for Integral Human Development from Cradle to Grave.
The purpose of this 2 year initiative is to co-design and co-develop rich environments to support and facilitate human development from cradle to grave. Together we will uncover, highlight and support our community’s resources for whole-person development (body, mind, soul, and spirit) so that each person knows they belong, has what they need at each life stage and stage of development in order to actualize their full potential and embody their unique role in our collective becoming. The project is in service to cultivating wholeness within individuals and the wider community and shifting (heightening, expanding, and deepening) our individual and collective stages of consciousness.
A Contemplative Journey Through Sacred Spaces
