The word glory means “to make known.” Every spiritual being is here to reveal what is truly glorious. Wouldn’t it be excellent to know, live, and communicate that? Body and Soul at best, entwine in an elegant dance that is efficient in energy, clear in purpose, and courageous in love.
The challenge is that in times of rapid change and disruption, overwhelm is constant. Sensitive leaders, creatives, and mystics need unique wisdom tools to align to such a radical hope and purpose. Ensoulment tools are not a luxury. They’re vital.
Are you called to ensoul this Creative, Mystic Life?
Are you ready to turn your challenges into initiations?
Each January, Cynthia gathers small groups of wise, playful people who recognize sensitivity as both a challenge and a gift. We are part of the one-in-five people who feel more, think more, notice more, and suffer more. At the same time, we are on some mystic path and wonder why embodiment is so tough on us.
Out of a life-long quest to unlock the wisdom of body and Soul, Cynthia uncovered twelve core wisdoms that now provide a creative, joyful infrastructure for living fully and effectively in the world. The forgotten root system of ensoulment began to appear while co-founding InterPlay. The birthrights of movement, voice, story, and stillness increasingly illuminated her path. Then, a profound resonance arose overtime. Based in a culture of rich cooperative interplay with others, people began to again perform the way trees, mushrooms, molecules, and waves do. Communication with the greater whole amplified. No solemn oath was needed. Only to honor our human nature and bring our keen curiosity to the Dance of Life.
Out of these roots and her constant search for the wisdom of ensoulment, the material in this Course slowly grew. Today, it is offered to small groups who meet together each month on zoom. Participants receive written and oral guidance through
a monthly two-hour session.

Do you sense Soul? In attuning to Nature, Dance, Song, and Sacred Silence, we tap into the ground of Soul in body. Once awakened as body and Soul, we can reorient to
- The prime desire of body and Soul: to create, play and rest
- The Three Directives: efficiency of energy, clarity of vision, and courage to love.
- Artful practices to deepen and mature our dance of ensoulment.
- Spontaneity as a signature of Soul and the locus of free will, synergy, and synchronicity.

Two: The Art of Empowering Your Sacred Flow, Move, tell, voice, and just be to generate flow and connection to the broader web. Then, listen in and learn from mystery.
Three: The Art of Divining Your Purpose–Differentiate your gifts, calls, and needs, and passions. Put on your seatbelt as you activate the poetry of purpose shining through your soul credentials.
Four: The Art of Suffering and Bowing to Limits. Don’t Get Over Yourself, Be Human. We learn to embrace death and appetite as part of body wisdom. Practice the art of bowing to honor this truth.
Once these wisdoms are in place, we turn to The Three Directives. (See Below).

What Others say about the course:
Licensed acupuncturist Jiling Lin, L.Ac. says, “Ensoulment helped me transition through board exams, and starting a medical practice. During sessions, I feel met and heard and am able to access and express usually inaccessible states. This helps me be more creative, motivated, and ultimately live a more joyous life, to show up fully for myself, and my patients and students. Snippets of ensoulment tools arise when needed in life and clinical practice, particularly in times of challenge, as gems of beauty that help anchor me into my greatest self, and the Great Mystery of the Universe. Deep gratitude!”
MaryEllen May, filmmaker, Mythos Journeys says, “Life often feels like too much for my sensitive body, but this year was exceptionally challenging. I’ve often felt trampled, fragmented and compromised just by being in the world. The effects of this in my energetic field and in my physical body left me depleted. I’m incredibly grateful to have connected with Cynthia and the journey of ensoulment last January. It gently carried me through the trials I faced. Each month gifted me with a deeper way of dancing with life’s initiations. It gave me ways to experience these life shifts as gateways. I moved through each gateway with profound appreciation and awe, transformed by the experience rather than trampled by it. Cynthia’s guidance about how to navigate life in a sensitive body and to playfully release and dance has been life-saving. This is a course one can encounter, again and again, going deeper each time. The richness of this course can’t be overstated, I feel very fortunate to have had the chance to take the journey of ensoulment.
Emily Katzenbach, psychotherapist and palliative chaplain says, “Cynthia, with all her teachings, is like a field with an immense amount of buried treasures to mine. She comes along beside you in the most unintrusive way and helps you dig….but it always with your own shovel. She mixes an immense space of incredible safety and ease…..she is at the same time just so silly (I giggle a lot and it breaks up all the tension in my body) and just so profound. Introduced are a plethora of spiritual practices one gets to be with at their own pace. Community is built with a breath. I am going to join her again for the next ensoulment group and I know I will be able to deepen all that I have learned. Thank you, Cynthia
Shauna Castro-McDaniel, Therapist/Founder of Be Love Community Counseling says, “Cynthia’s presence and Art of Ensoulment Course have been such a meaningful gift in my life. It came right on time with all the unexpected twists and turns of 2020, allowing me to connect with messages in my body that informed actions centered on love for myself and others. As a sensitive person, mother, and therapist, I learned how to balance better and know myself better giving me greater confidence and acceptance for what is. The opportunity to meet individually has been a magical mix to support in my liberation journey. Cynthia as a teacher is gifted at supporting people to have their own experiences leading to surprises only the individual can uncover. I am whole heartily grateful for my connection with Cynthia and the teachings that supported my development in the Course’s inspired contemplations that led me to greater peace within. I highly recommend the Art of Ensoulment Course.”
