Each of us, as a human soul, incarnates by choice with a purpose, an intention or vision for this life – what we came here to do and to be. The soul chooses one or more of six great archetypal pathways in which to develop its talents and realize its vision – Healer / Peacemaker, Explorer / Scientist, Warrior / Guardian, Artist / Musician, Teacher / Historian, Builder / Organizer. For each of the six pathways, the work we do in society has its characteristic disciplines that are to be first learned and then practiced. Each of the pathways is not only a career or a profession, our work in the world, each is also at a deeper level a pathway for manifesting our soul’s destiny.
