    Have you ever wished you could really connect with the people you encounter, be open to them as a true teacher and expression of mystery. It is amazingly powerful to encounter another's "thou-ness," to talk and hear their truth truth beyond expectations, and to respond out of that same mystery! That is what we learn to do, better and better, in Soul Jazz Level II.

    We will also explore what it means to “take a stand” and manifest the unexpressed potential in our lives and relationships.


    If the results from our first beta test are any indicator, these twin practices, “Encountering Thouness” and “Taking a Stand,” combine as a balanced teaching that has the power to actually change lives.

    We will offer a Beta test of this workshop in Toronto in November 19 - 21, 2010. If you are interested, please drop us a line: click here.

    Like last time, it will be just $100 for the weekend, which will again include four weekly follow up support teleconferences. There will also be an non-obligatory opportunity for feedback and brainstorming.

    We can’t tell you how excited we are about this new offering!

    Are you committed to a spiritual path but find it hard to apply your spiritual insights to your everyday life? Have you found depth in quiet walks or meditations, but somehow lose it in your relationships and professional life? Would you like to love more authentically and connect more openly with the world?

    If so, you will be interested in the Soul Jazz© program, a workshop designed by a team of experienced spiritual teachers and facilitators. The Beta Tests we have run have been very very powerful. Led by world renowned author and Forge Institute Founder Robert Forman and Toronto Psychologist Kerry Gorden, participants have said they have come to understand and have practice in navigating everyday life and have been learning to live with more soulfulness within themselves and their relationships.

    Spiritual workshops often teach about letting go of one’s own attachments. This misses the reality of deep connection, and of deep contact with others and with life. In the Soul Jazz
    © Level I you will explore the depths of your encounter with birth, death, life, loss and eternity.
    • Understand the place of soul in human life
    • Live more soulfully within yourself
    • Learn to connect, soul to soul
    • Learn to listen and speak from within soul, explore from within it.
    • Understand what stops us from living soulfully
    • Build ongoing support system to further develop after workshop.
    We will be offering the Soul Jazz© Level I programs, in face to face formats and online, in early 2011. If you are interested, please contact us and we will inform you of our next trainings.

    Have you ever had a conversation that suddenly drops down, and you start telling truths about yourself and about life that you’ve never before articulated? And your partner(s) share right back in a deliciously open way? Such conversations go deep, so deep that they open to the very sacred.

    The Forge Institute is about that. Our Soul Jazz programs, still in Beta Testing, teach people how to engage self and other in just such a spirit.

    The Forge Guild is a community of people that seek to have just such interactions, long term. It's a peer community of spiritual leaders, teachers and mentors so deep that it touches the sacred.

    We seek to help create a world of such depth. The Call to Global Spiritual Citizenship, developed by Guild members, articulates the principles for it.

    We are people from every religion and pathway who are serious about going to the place of unknowing--alone, with others and in the world. The ticket to entry is a willingness to grow, learn and love without limit.

    We are the home for conversations that matter. Life lived soul to soul.
