SoulCollage® is an experience of self-reflection using images that speak to you. No art experience is needed!

Life is a journey whose path appears as we start to walk it. We can’t see far ahead, but looking back we can find connecting threads that weave meaning through our experiences. In this retreat we will name the various chapters of our lives, our guides or companions on the way, and explore the trust and courage it takes to move forward. We will make SoulCollage cards as well as draw a finger labyrinth and do a mapping exercise to identify from where we feel called to leave and where we seek to go.

Friday, October 27 to Sunday, October 29, 2023
This retreat begins at 7:00 PM on Friday and concludes at 1:00 PM on Sunday.
Cost of $360 (includes overnight accommodations, meals, and supplies)
