Why did we choose The Soul in Anguish?

The Soul in Anguish: Psychotherapeutic Approaches to Suffering presents a variety of approaches to suffering,

 from the perspectives of both Jungian and psychoanalytic psychology.

An important theme of the book is that suffering may be harmful or helpful to the development of the personality.

Our culture tends to assume that suffering is invariably negative or pointless, but this is not necessarily so;

suffering may be destructive, but it may also lead to positive developments such as enhanced empathy for others, wisdom, or spiritual development.

In a time of obvious collective suffering, The Soul in Anguish takes us on an extraordinary voyage through the intricacies of the human psyche. Lionel Corbett's evocative prose and deep insights beckon readers to contemplate the complexities of pain, transformation, and spiritual possibility found within the depths of suffering.

This book is not just a collection of words; it's a vessel carrying profound wisdom that has the power to reshape perspectives and illuminate the path to deeper relationship to suffering.

What People Are Saying:

"I loved the interaction and raw vulnerability of the group members. A lot of times I find people will lack the courage to step in the ring of vulnerability.

This group was led with openness and engagement right from the start.

People shared their stories and insights right from the heart and that allowed some very interesting perspectives to consider.

I was highly skeptical about joining a "book club" but thought, what the hell....I love to read and lone turns out that I loved, loved, loved the group sharing.

That was my favorite part for sure.

I learned that everyone has a different "Hero's Journey" and that just being present and actively listening to people can bring so much joy to them.

It doesn't necessarily have to be about the chapter lesson I found to have "ah-ha" moments. Such a good group."


Are the books included? 

Books are NOT included in the program. We encourage you to purchase them in advance of the October 8th start date.

You can purchase the book here.


What if I’ve read the book before? 

If you have read the book, you may have not read the book in this way.

We will be breaking down concepts and sharing embodied experiences with the material to ensure that this experience is far different than reading it by yourself.

I read really slow. Will I be able to keep up?

We are covering each book over the span of the next 6 months.

The book is approximately 338 pages.

So if we read approximately 338 pages, that’s approximately 14 pages a week, or two pages a day. 


I read really fast. Will I get bored? 

Within the book club, we’re doing more than just reading for the sake of completion. 

We will be reading, journaling, note-taking, thinking, processing, self-coaching, applying.

You will not be bored.


When are the monthly calls?

Calls will be held the second Sunday of each month from 10:00 am-11:30am MST.

Here’s the exact schedule: 10/8, 11/12, 12/10, 1/14, 2/11, 3/10


What if I can’t make the monthly Zoom Calls?

All calls will be recorded and emailed within 24 hours.

We would prefer if you could make it live, but we understand life happens, in that case you can always submit a question or topic in advance and then listen to the recording for answers, interpretations and/or suggestions on guidance.


Can I join at any time? 

Unfortunately, no.

Registration will close on October 8th before we begin the first call.


Enrollment is OPEN now.
