About Soulfulness™

 

About Soulfulness™

There is a force in us that animates us and gives us life. The nature and essence of this force is unknowable, a great mystery. Because we have only one life, it is our obligation to express this energy in a way that allows us to thrive and evolve as a natural impulse of evolution, to know ourselves and to become more of ourselves, to express who we really are, what we desire and what gives us a sense of wellbeing and meaning and to do this in a way that enhances life for all beings. This means living life intentionally, authentically and with a sense of purpose. If we do not stay in touch with what is true in us, we risk dying an unlived life, which is to say, we risk not living an authentic and meaningful life of our own making. To live a life that is truly our own, we need Soulfulness™.

That is the purpose of my work – to bring more Soulfulness™ into the world. This means connecting with and expressing the soul which is the life-giving force in our bodies and which can only be expressed through us. If we block it or suppress, it will not exist and it will be lost. The responsibility for expressing ourselves as only we can lies solely with us. This means we need to reclaim authority for our own lives. It is not the responsibility of our parents, our partners, our children, the government or any other authority to direct our lives. It is our responsibility. The ability to be responsible for our own lives is true freedom. And it costs everything. It requires that we question everything we think we are or should be and everything we have been taught or programmed to be. No-one can know what the ultimate truth is. We must know things as we experience them. This is the practice of Soulfulness™.

Through tracking dreams, journaling, bodywork, authentic movement, transformational conversation, breath work and artistic expression, I have developed the art and practice of Soulfulness™ which I now share with clients wanting to bring more soulfulness into their work and lives. These soul journeys are designed for people wanting to live an authentic and meaningful life, a life defined by choice and freedom. It requires a willingness to explore the inner world, a desire to free oneself from limiting patterns and a wish to become a whole human being.

My life is a contribution to bringing more Soulfulness™ into the world. Soulfulness™ is a path of self-discovery, expression and wholeness. It is an alchemical path of transformation and evolution. It is a path of reclaiming power. It is a power that has nothing to do with force, control, status or money. It has everything to do with the courage to allow what is hidden within you to emerge and to be at ease with the unknown, the unsolvable mystery of existence and the infinite to which you are inexorably connected. You need go nowhere as long as you are fully where you are. It is a path of awakening and remembering who you are. Many people miss out on the gift of themselves as they journey through life. They know a lot of things, they know a lot of people and places, but they do not know themselves, the greatest gift they have been given. Soulfulness™ is a return to self, a homecoming, a journey towards wholeness and healing. It includes all aspects of ourselves, even those that have been buried, denied or lost.  It allows the beauty of who we are to be what we do. It gives us the power to shape our lives to what is shaping them. It guides us to move towards what we need and away from what we do not need. It develops inner seeing and hearing. And a sense of our true value. A value that emanates from inside of us. It allows us to recognise that our being is our true value.

“If there is light in the soul,

There will be beauty in the person.

If there is beauty in the person,

There will be harmony in the house.

If there is harmony in the house,

There will be order in the nation.

If there is order in the nation,

There will be peace in the world.

 

Our task is not to create more images of light, but to release the light that is trapped within the darkness.”

About the Founder

CARMEN METTLER

B Bus Science (Finance) ( Hons); PGDip (Accounting)

I facilitate dynamic journeys of discovery and exploration of self, using cutting edge science, depth psychology, ancient wisdom, intuition, imagination, direct experience, artistic processes and awareness practices including sensory, energy, heart, mind, presence, relational, collective, field and source awareness.

This integrated approach offers clients new possibilities to grow and flourish, and to connect deeply to self, others, the world and the mystery of life and who we are, and in the process, transform limiting patterns and habits, unlock potential and creativity, build coherence and resilience and discover and explore the deep intelligence and creative spark in their beings and in the field of intelligence and creative energy that informs all of life, an evolutionary impulse that is billions of years old.
Since 1998, I have worked with thousands of individuals on personal, learning, leadership, team and organizational journeys in learning institutions, business schools, universities, small, medium and large businesses, including global listed companies and government and non-government organizations across diverse sectors such as mining, manufacturing, retail and banking.

I am committed to evolving consciousness and supporting others in emergent evolutionary processes to build growth mindsets and skills for effectively navigating the unknown. These awareness, agile and adaptive thinking, virtual communication, resilience, creativity, leadership and social influence. This enables clients to access new possibilities for growth, transform limiting patterns and habits, discover their talents, gifts and unique purpose and contribution, unlock potential and creativity, challenge the status quo, shift paradigms, build coherence and resilience and direct their intentions into form through authentic, courageous, co-creative, collaborative and conscious actions that contribute to a connected, compassionate and sustainable world that works for all.

My personal evolution journey started in 1990 and has taken me into the vast and greatest unexplored terrain of the mystery of who we are. Nobody knows what the ultimate truth is. We can only know what we experience. To know ourselves requires the willingness to be open, courageous, and authentic. My personal self-discovery and learning journey with wisdom teachers and experts in multi-disciplinary fields has evolved into the wisdom practices and spaces I hold for clients to connect, grow and evolve.

My self-development journey has meandered through multi-disciplinary modalities including Jungian psychology and Jungian analysis, Kahuna, Iyengar Yoga, Hatha Yoga, Body Alignment, Body Talk, Transformational Breathwork, Body Stress Release, Cranio-Sacral Therapy, Homeopathy, Functional Medicine, Active Imagination, Dream Analysis, Rebirthing, Kinesiology, Reiki, Massage and Reflexology, Rolfing, Nia, Modern Dance, Biodanza, Blissdance, Soul Painting, Poetry, Writing, Astrology, Mary Whitehouse’s Authentic Movement, Marion Woodman’s BodySoul Rhythms, Creative Consciousness Coaching, Shamanic Initiations and Training, Family and Shamanic Constellations, Biographical Counselling, Anthroposophy and Psychophonetics. My learning journey has deepened my understanding and direct experience of the development of the self and the nature of the psyche, mind and body and has evolved into the wisdom practices and processes I share with clients. My perspective on development as a psychophysiological process enables me to approach development from an integral perspective and bridge the divide between multi-disciplinary approaches to development and transformation through the Soulfulness™ process.

My work is a contribution to the evolution of consciousness, realization of self and the experience of self as a harmonious, interconnected and undivided wholeness. I love walking, writing and creative expression, facilitating transformational processes, communing with nature for inspiration and being with my family and friends. I see myself as an artist and my life as a work of art, the art of living soulfully in the moment.
