The Power of Soul ~ Living the Twelve Virtues
For the sake of the heart of earth
The Power of Soul is a practical approach to knowing the spiritual world emanation, represented by the twelve virtues and how it works into our soul and bodily life in furthering our evolution into humanity. By coming to a "KNOWING" of the spiritual, soul and bodily interplay of the twelve virtues, our incarnation can become a conscious soul life that is connected to the spiritual world, enabling virtue to be lived right here on earth. It is a practical guide complete with the phenomenology of the 12 virtues as related to humanity, alchemical processes and exercises for the reader to experience. This book is a treasure, which you will want to refer to over and over again if you are involved in any type of spiritual or soul work.
Robert Sardello is a major figure in America's rediscovery of soul, reacquainting thousands with its importance and vitality. Thomas Moore hails him as one of our most creative and original thinkers, while James Hillman praises him for breaking open startling new realms of meaning. Sardello's probing, provocative books and his seminars and "soul retreats" through his School of Spiritual Psychology, have earned him widespread respect and attention. In The Power of Soul, he shows us how to educate the emotions, refine the soul, and develop inner character. He explains how to locate the soul and gain a sense of how our soul wants to act in the world. In warm, thoughtful prose, Sardello gives us a new, Western way to lead an authentic spiritual life and gain an inner feeling for each virtue. He says, "Once we enter into the task of developing virtue, we enter into an alchemical process of transforming our soul life into capacities for helping others gracefully, and with subtlety and nuance."
“Whatever Sardello touches breaks open with startling new meaning. Now he enters the great arena of our cultural disorders so that we can suddenly see them afresh. I have thieved privately from his mind for fifteen years. At last his work is out, available to anyone recognizing the need to reimagine the soul’s plight in a world astray.”—James Hillman, founder of archetypal psychology and author of The New York Times best seller The Soul’s Code: In Search of Character and Calling
