Imagine a different way
When you don’t make time for self-care and soul-tending, your inner light starts to fade; you can lose your drive, your optimism and your joy, and instead resign yourself to just “getting by”.
I invite you to consider the possibility that it’s OK — perhaps even imperative — to honor and embrace your desire to focus on yourself and your inner journey; To take the time to slow down and process whatever burdens you carry.
Feel into the possibility that those longings are really OK, and that those very feelings are calling you do the deep (sometimes scary and even painful) work of self-care, soul-tending and healing.
Give yourself permission to want more from life – more joy, more wisdom, more depth, more creativity, more meaning.
A way that’s surprisingly simple
Far and away my favorite process for fun, creative and profound soul-tending is SoulCollage®.
Developed by therapist and author Seena Frost, SoulCollage® gently enables you to hear the deep wisdom of your own inner knowing, and to honor all aspects of your life. In the process, you find yourself becoming ever more whole, ever more at peace, and awakened to the joy of simply being your true self.(Click here to learn more about SoulCollage)
So because it’s such a wonderful healing modality, and because the best success I’ve had in maintaining any kind of self-care practice has come when there was some kind of external structure I could lean into (like when the only time I exercised regularly was when I had a class to go to or a personal trainer), I offer quarterly SoulCollage day retreats called The Gatherings.
Make it easy on yourself
The Gatherings provide an opportunity for you step away from all the external demands of your busy life and attend to your inner needs for balance, self-care and self-discovery through the process of Soulcollage.
These retreats are meant to be easy:
- Not so long that your Puritanical “too selfish” voices can kick in,but just long enough for a deep drink from the well of self-care.
- Not an intense time commitment like weekly or even monthly classes, but enough to keep yourself moving forward—there’s even a half-day option!
- And not a huge investment.
So really, kind of a no-brainer.
For women who crave a “time-out”… and those who want to “Be the Change”
For people new to SoulCollage, this is an experiential immersion where you’ll learn the basics and experience all the aspects of SoulCollage.
For those already familiar with the process, it’s an opportunity to refresh your memory, to build your deck and delve once again into your inner world.
Regardless of your level of experience, quarterly day retreats create an opening for you to reconnect and recommit to yourself, to your process and to your wholeness.
And for everyone, it’s a chance to gather with others in the SoulCollage community. Being in community creates the synergy of the group field, which deepens and amplifies your experience.
