What makes Southwest Soul Quest different?
Right from the start, within a familiar one-on-one setting, we delve into your specific needs in a safe and practical way.
Self Soul Spirit™:
The Self / Soul / Spirit™ model values tracking, identifying, and processing the many voices/parts we all harbor so as to illuminate the choices we have as individuals to reach our highest potential. It uses common terms chosen to explore the various parts of our psyches and their interaction with ongoing life experiences. The interaction between the parts we inherit and our life experiences combine to form our unique human expression. This is accomplished through the creation of individualized psychological Mandalas (parts map).
This approach is aimed at helping one to cultivate an individual’s innate ways of knowing and psychological resources/facets to prepare them for Self-healing, Self whole-ing, and the descent to soul. This process relies upon the unique dynamic found between the individual and the non-human world that often leads to encounters between the many parts of the psyche and the human/nature relationship. This is a guided process of co-creating a workable map of the psyche to become more aware of the constraints and opportunities these parts contain in relationship to living a meaningful and authentic life. This approach builds off of successful work in the Self / Soul/ Spirit™ approach.
These skills and practices, developed by Eco-Depth Psychologist, Bill Plotkin, evoke the world-shifting experience of soul encounter. Soulcraft practices spring from wilderness rites, depth psychology, ecopsychology, the poetic tradition, nature-based peoples, and from the wild Earth itself — and comprise a contemporary, Western, and nature-rooted path to the terra mysterium of soul initiation. For a thorough introduction to Soulcraft and the underworld journey, read Bill Plotkin’s book, Soulcraft: Crossing into the Mysteries of Nature and Psyche.

Southwest Soul Quest + Women on the Move Coaching
We are passionate about helping young adults, families, and individuals find the courage to create an authentic life and walk their own path. Each of us is uniquely different as is each of our paths.
Whether a career change, a major life transition event, a decision regarding a relationship, the creation of a new norm post treatment, pondering where to live, choosing a college or going another route; whatever your current life circumstance, how do you determine what is best for you? What is unsatisfactory? What is missing? What is driving you to search for help? How do you embark on the next phase of your life? How do you determine the steps to take?
Some of us have always felt this desire. Others are tired of the norm and want something different. We often betray our deepest instincts without even realizing it as we get so caught up in our lives and stray from our innermost feelings and thoughts. Until that moment in time when the feeling is so strong or events happen that force us to look at what we have been avoiding or chosen not to acknowledge. In these moments lies a choice to embrace and follow these instincts or to close the door and continue to be functional.
Joseph McCaffrey of Southwest Soul Quest and Tracy Schrunk of Women on the Move Coaching want to help you walk through that door.
Our model is designed to assist you in breaking out of your old stories – to create a new way of being that helps you live from a place of authenticity. A clear, stable foundation is required to manifest your goals, your dreams, and your passions. When we are in alignment, the joy, the creativity, the energy, the happiness flow. This is the art of living.
