I'm drawn to the image you described: "...a tiny, bright white adobe house sitting on top of a hill, away from the dreary scene of the poverty and destruction below. In the next scene I saw myself happily and peacefully sweeping the floor…"

Glad to hear about your experience with Richard Rohr. I find him very insightful, progressive, with a well rounded perspective - from the point of view of a contemplative/msytic who has strives to be present and speaks from experience.
"Thomas.... aahhhhh.... a man after my own heart! Fr. Richard has been a mentor of mine for many years now! I attended his first MROP in Australia and was a teaching elder at the second one. I heard he had published yet another tome or two. Can't…"

1. Various Jungian concepts such as shadow, complexes, dreams, individuation, ego, Self, etc.
2. Concepts, practices & spiritual traditions understood and taught by indigenous peoples (i.e. North America, Mesoamerica and Australia)
3. an in-depth look at one particular concept such as "dreams" such as Clinical & Theoretical Concepts; Dreamwork Practices; Extraordinary/ Lucid and PSI Dreams; Spiritual/Religious/Philosophical Implications; Cultural, Anthropological and Historical Implications, etc.
4. A deep and empassinoned interest in the distinction between "spirit" and "soul" i.e. along the lines of J Hillman's insights on the function of the soul
5. Having recently completed a MROP in Australia, life has really become a "interesting journey" rife with potential and possibility for true TRANSFORMATION. My personal 'awakening' was in my early 40's and is what I would call a 'spiritual emergency'.... referred to by T Keating as an evacuation of the unconcious....through this recognising the reality of the spiritual dimension I have been journeying and learning ever since. The biggest challenge for me has been to reconcile the spiritual and material. The search for me has always been within the Christian tradition...
K Wilber’s writings, in the last week, has been helpful in my trying to understand all this ....he talks about spirit needing to be lived/experience from the inside out into matter....the dualistic mind separates them...either or...I believe MROP goes to the heart of this and assists with the reconciliation - spirit & matter....this is the brilliance of the ritual and use of liminal space....it is transformative...and not in ways that we can necessarily understand immediately....hence all this stuff about reminders...ongoing groups, don't talk about it, bags of gold, etc... This is a concept I am only now beginning to understand, reconcile and grasp. This process has taken me over 50 years.
R Rohr speaks about the Great Chain of Being (not his term) comprising matter-body-mind-soul & spirit...the general theory is that the 'outer' world reflects the interior levels of knowing and being...but the process of evolution or un-folding could never occur without a prior process of involution or in-folding.....there is a whole lot that goes with this....but in essence before the unfolding of spirit can occur involution or the infolding of spirit must occur.
6. As such, my curiosity and interest has been peaked vis-a-vis Eliade and Turner's notions of LIMINALITY i.e. Wilderness Passage Rites
