"The great malady of the twentieth century, implicated in all of our troubles and affecting us individually and socially, is ' loss of soul.' When the soul is neglected, it just doesn't go away; it appears symptomatically in obsessions, addictions, violence, and loss of meaning. Our temptation is to isolate these symptoms or eradicate them one by one; but the root problem is that we have lost our wisdom about the soul, even our interest in it."
- Thomas Moore, "Care of the Soul", pg xi

Four-fifths of the world’s population are suffering from a hunger of the body and one-fifth is suffering from a hunger of the soul. Something strange is going on: our personalities are becoming richer and richer, while our souls become poorer and poorer. Our personalities are being whipped into a frenzied spiral of acquiring more, doing more, and being faster, while our souls feel empty and yearn for renewal. Voices within us warn of the growing conflict between our personality and our soul. We are precariously poised at a moment of great danger and great hope."
- Lance H. K. Secretan, "Reclaiming Higher Ground: Creating Organizations That Inspire the Soul", pg. 3

Paul H. Richard Soul Focused Consulting is a consulting organization passionately dedicated to recovering our wisdom about Soul. By caring attentively for the life of the Soul, life is deepened beyond measure as we are empowered by:
  a passion for living,
       a purpose to our yearning,
             and a meaning for our striving.

Paul H. Richard Soul Focused Consulting is a consulting organization skilled in facilitating the raising of human consciousness and deepening personal enrichment and empowerment, for individuals and groups, through ancient arts and modern tools of Soul work and spiritual growth.

Paul H. Richard Soul Focused Consulting is a consulting organization intensely committed to healing the human heart and spirit. The human heart is not only the physical organ that pumps life-blood through out our bodies. The human heart is also a metaphor for that deepest part of ourselves where we are most truly ourselves; where our deepest passions, most fervent dreams, and most creative imaginings dwell. The human heart is a metaphor for the Soul. The human heart, or Soul, is thus that which makes us uniquely who we are and from which our life most authentically flows. It is this heart/soul which contains all the wisdom, vision, and healing power we need to live our lives with deepest passion and courage.

Paul humbly stands in the grace-filled ancient heritage of his Elders from Celtic Ireland and Native America. Immersed in their spiritual teachings, values, and traditions, Paul strives to bring their healing wisdom to all of his endeavors.

Paul is a sought-after soul mentor, spiritual "director," evolutionary astrologer, counselor, teacher, workshop presenter, Labyrinth facilitator, life-coach and Bible scholar with 27 years experience. He has deep roots in Native American, Celtic, and Christian spiritualities; mythology; archetypal psychology; art; ritual and symbol; shamanistic tradition; and dream work.

Through an imaginal dialogue with the Soul, using the ancient arts of his ancestors and the modern arts of depth psychology, Paul seeks to enhance your awareness of the sacred tools and abilities you have been given, so that you can create a life of passion, purpose, and meaning.
