The Phoenix Program

The Phoenix Program is a series of 3 online courses aimed on Self-discovery and integrative spiritual development.

The courses are comprised of interactive presentations with printed materials (including outlines and reference materials) that can be accessed at the leisure of the student.

The first course (Finding the Phoenix) is an eight-part series of videos that provides students with the synergistic tools they will need for self-discovery and is currently available on this website.

The second course (Freeing the Phoenix) follows this same format and guides students through the deconstruction of externally generated identity in order to reveal the inner-authentic Self (which Jung called the “Individuated Self”).  This course will be available on this website by the Fall of 2021.

The final course (Becoming the Phoenix) focuses on discovery of the elements of the individuated identity including the anima/animus, transgenerational phenomena and the all-important shadow work.

This course will be available on this website by Spring 2022. Interactive online group classes (limit of 12 people per class) are currently under development. Use our website’s Contact Page for inquiries and to be added to our mailing list for current information on these classes.

Graduates of the Phoenix Program will be eligible to participate in the Fundamentals of Neo-shamanism classes that are currently under development.

All of the above courses are taught by Dr. Karel James Bouse.
