Francis Weller, MFT, is a psychotherapist, writer and soul activist who has developed a style he calls soul-centered psychotherapy, synthesizing diverse streams of thought from psychology, anthropology, mythology, alchemy, indigenous cultures and poetic traditions. His book Entering the Healing Ground: Grief, Ritual and the Soul of the World discusses creating pathways to reclaiming our indigenous soul, what psychologist Carl Jung called the “unforgotten wisdom” that resides in the heart of the psyche. Recognizing the lack of existing dialogue and the profound need for sacred ritual and grief work in his community and beyond, Weller founded WisdomBridge in Northern CA, an organization that offers educational programs that integrate the wisdom from traditional cultures with the insights and knowledge gathered from western cultures. A gifted therapist and teacher, he has been described as a jazz artist, improvising and moving fluidly in and out of deep emotional territories with groups and individuals bringing imagination and attention to places often held with judgment and shame. He is currently completing his second book, A Trail on the Ground: Tracking the Ways of the Indigenous Soul. Francis lives in a small cabin in the Russian River Watershed with his wife and surrounded by his community. He is available for onsite workshops and private consultations.
