Point of Arrival: Labryrinth and SoulCollage® Experience: World Labyrinth Day – Saturday, May 6, 2023, 9:30A – 4P EDT

The spiritual path of the labyrinth is a metaphor for the journey of life and inner spiritual pilgrimage. By walking the path to the center of the labyrinth, we symbolically journey to the inner self and to the Source/Spirit/God. Experiencing the labyrinth by walking or tracing is an ancient soul tending spiritual and prayer practice.

SoulCollage® is a creative, intuitive, inspiring, and fun process using images to discover the deeper self and Source/Spirit/God. SoulCollage® helps access the sacred within through symbolic images and is also sacred soul tending process. 

In this in-person mini-retreat, two powerful soul tending practices for spiritual renewal, connection and self-care come together to create an experience of prayer, creativity, connection, and Inner Wisdom. We join others throughout the world who will walk the labyrinth on this day. After a shared labyrinth walk, we will create SoulCollage® cards and share those cards with each other.

Fee – $90. Participants receive a beginner packet of 12 mat boards, 12 protective sleeves, glue, and access to a large assortment of images. Bring your lunch. (microwave and refrigerator available) Water, tea and coffee available. You need to bring your journal and an open heart and mind.
