Institute for Spiritual Guidance 2023 Weekend Retreat

Institute for Spiritual Guidance 2023 Weekend Retreat

This weekend for spiritual guides offers the opportunity to intentionally reflect and notice the invitations emerging from within your role and identity in this ministry through the process of SoulCollage.® Together we will discuss the principles of SoulCollage®, make cards, and share them using the phrase, "I Am The One Who...".  There will be time for rest, an opportunity to walk the labyrinth, and to share our "best practices" resources to enrich our own calling as spiritual guides. You will leave this contemplative retreat reconnected to your call to this ministry and energized to enter more deeply into collaboration with the Divine Mystery, both in your life and in the lives of those you accompany.

SoulCollage® in an intuitive collage process designed by Seena Frost, author of "SoulCollage® Evolving".  Seena's love of creativity, spirituality and psychotherapy inspired her to develop this transformative process which uses imagination, intuition and images as a pathway to inner wisdom. SoulCollage® celebrates the multifaceted dimensions of our inner life and opens us ourselves to be challenged and changed. We do this with images from magazines, glue and 5 x 8 cards. No artistic talent or prior experience is required! Come for exploration, creativity & community. All supplies are provided. You will also be given a "take-home" bag with images and resources.
