The Florence Summer Program on Soul Studies proposes to offer instruments, ideas, leads, and perspectives to facilitate an initiation into Soul work, a journey to the deepest roots of our being.
Our school offers the first Study Program on Soul Studies aimed at meeting the needs of individuals who are seeking an opportunity to study, research, and discover Soul through a multifaceted perspective deriving from different fields and disciplines.
Our intensive (open, short) Study Program is the first to be entirely dedicated to Soul Studies.
The initiative is a special pathway offered to groups of students, from different countries around the world, with an interest in Soul Studies, besides the possibility of earning – in accordance with your university programs – credits hours for a one-week summer session. The study program is limited to a class size of a maximum of 11 students, postgraduate students and auditors.
The study program is also propaedeutic, including additional longer study programs in Soul Counseling, entirely focused on the training and preparation of
This additional initiative, coinceived for individuals who can remain in Florence for a longer period of time, places special emphasis on experience and story telling, both on individual and collective levels, providing an opportunity to students throughout the entire program to share personal experiences and narratives, express personal points of view and discuss these perspectives with teachers, who are internationally renowned scholars, lecturers, analysts, and seminar leaders.
The didactic method predominantly adopted throughout the coursework of the study program includes thematic conversational seminars conducted in small group format, alternating with lectures and personal colloquia.
The program have a duration of a time-period of three days, one week-end. The didactic curriculum is organized in the following way:
a) four/six hours of daily seminar activity in small group format on themes introduced by group leaders and faculty members, as well as by student participants;
(seminars on subjects listed below: see Curriculum Overview);
b) the availability of group leaders (Soul Counsellors and Analysts) for personal colloquia; these individual meetings are optional and included in the program fees.
Most of the courses in group format are held by the founder of the school, Prof. Dr. Daniele Cardelli, who takes inspiration from ancient philosophical traditions.
All courses are in English and, when given in Italian, simultaneous translation in English is provided.
At the conclusion of coursework, at the completion of the study program, participants earn the registration in our School in Florence.
A certificate will be issued to each student at the conclusion of the study program.
We believe our study program offers a unique educational experience, as unique as our experience with the Soul, as unique as each personal life – an extraordinary and soulful pathway aimed at promoting the growth and development of the individual.
