"... a profound personal journey which has taken me beyond my grandest imagination... Every facet... will touch your heart and soul. If you are reading this, trust, engage and strap yourself in for a life changing freedom journey!" - Michelle J.
"I yearned to access power from within to lift me when I needed strength in my business and personal situations... I was introduced to Earth Institute's natural approach to inner work...This gave me a real sense of wisdom for creating the necessary change. This was supported by being shown my exact position, needs and necessary responses." - Dean S.
"I've known Paul's incredible level of support for over ten years in his previous roles as a teacher of healers, psychologist, mind-body counsellor and pioneer of soul life creation. He journeyed with me through my deepest despair to help create the more authentically empowered person that I am today. Paul held every moment of my journey with love, compassion, sensitivity and the ability to articulate precisely what was going on when at times I could not grasp its dynamics in words. 'Sanctuary' is for those ready for a deeper experience and expression of life and those wanting to better understand their connection in life between 'heaven and earth'. If you are wanting an Echardt Tolle experience at a slightly faster pace, go and spend time with Paul." - Kelly A.
The way of the soul, spiritual emergence & soul-life creation...
Your soul is the real experience of your most essential, whole and loving nature. Soul-making is the art of creating more of the life you love directly from the care of this most powerful place - your own bodily, emotional, mindful, soulful and spiritual Self close to the soul of the earth and the infinite. You can really live and create your way in life through the integral care and creative power of your own soul life.
Spiritual emergence is the recovery and progressive unfolding of your soul life. It is the return of your authenticity, life force and sacred nature. This adventure of Self-discovery enables you to live from a whole and meaningful sense of who you really are, creating your life from the hearth of all you can be.. soul-life creation.
"Spiritual emergence is a kind of birth pang in which you yourself go through to a fuller life, a deeper life, in which some areas in your life that were not yet encompassed by this fullness of life are now integrated." (Steindl-Rast).
"Two roads diverged in a wood, and I -
I took the one less travelled by,
And that has made all the difference."
Welcome to Earth Institute - Paul Perfrement & Associates
Places for exploring the unfolding of nature, soul & spirit in your life.
"Something new is coming into creation in our world, unfolding from within the life of the human heart and soul.... Our expertise is in supporting the unfolding of this recreative power of the soul in the lives of individuals, couples and groups. Our retreats and sessions are held close to the hearth of our living Earth and the Cosmos. Fulfilment, meaningful achievements for the future and the co-creation of a new quality of life are all enhanced through your soul life. We are artisans in helping you to build soulful competency for positive change in your life. Our 'soul life practices' are select, direct ways of being appropriate for you. They create new interactions with your own experiences and Self - an artistry of care and change-making from body to mind to soul to spirit. We believe this expertise is the crucial missing 'x-factor' for most people when they feel 'stuck'. In our busy and soul hungry world crossing this bridge to wholeness remains 'the road less travelled'. Is this because living fully now requires both courage and discovering a new sense of Self and way of being to embrace the invitation and potentials of the future?
Living fully may have its challenges, yet any life half-lived tends to lack meaning, happiness and aliveness. Soul retrieval and the care of the soul seems to transform 'old ghosts' such as unhealthy self-limits, harm, doubt and guilt. Where does this lead? All traditions and many individuals have shown that it leads to personal recovery, self-discovery, authenticity, inner joy, higher levels of functioning, unconditional love, intimacy with life, and inner freedom. Its an heroic journey to live fully from your soul life. Along the way we discover that the Earth, too, has a soul. Sacred nature. One great sanctuary of the soul - a living hearth for the recreation of yourself, your life and the world now being born."

"Look. This is your world! You can't not look. There is no other world. This is your world; it is your feast.... Look at the greatness of the whole thing. Look! Don't hesitate - look! Open your eyes, don't blink, and look, look - look further." - Chogyam Trungpa
