Always We Begin Again: A SoulCollage Retreat

With Barbara Sutton

January 10 - 12, 2020

Benedict guides us with these words of wisdom: “Always we begin again.” This retreat will uncover old habits, periodic negative mindsets, and ego-driven hurts that seem hard-wired within one’s soul. As a way forward, retreatants will let a word and image settle in their heart and accompany them into 2020. We will pray with images of The Saint John’s Bible and make SoulCollage® cards. A SoulCollage Sunday Circle will begin meeting Feb. 16. Receive 10% off this retreat with membership in the Circle. SoulCollage is an imaginative and intuitive collage process and a powerful medium for exploring one’s heart, gifts, passions, and purpose through an expressive art process.
