Cheryl Sanders-Sardello

    Cheryl Sanders-Sardello (b. 1951-d. 2015) was co-founder and co-director of The School of Spiritual Psychology, in Benson, NC. She was a Fellow of the Dallas Institute of Humanities and Culture, a place she dearly loved. Prior to the founding of The School in 1992, she worked as a counselor of mentally handicapped children, and later as an addictions counselor at Parkland Hospital and Southwestern Medical School in Dallas. At the time of her death, she was writing a book on the healing of the twelve senses in the young and the development of the spiritual senses as we age, with an additional focus on the spiritual psychology of what it means to be in connection with the “so-called dead.” By far, Cheryl’s most abiding and deep interest was that of learning to enter the process of remaining connected with those who have died and helping others learn to do so. Conversing with James Hillman: Senex & Puer is dedicated to the memory of Cheryl. (2013, 2014, 2015)
