You use a glass mirror to see your face, you use works of art to see your soul
- George Bernard Shaw
September 25-27th, 2020
Align yourself with the rhythm of Nature, quiet your mind, open your heart and acknowledge your Divinity. Listen to the soft whispers of your Soul, give yourself permission to get curious, to explore the deep richness of your being.
We invite you to join us for SoulCollage. Stir together the ingredients of your imagination and intuition with powerful cut-out images and begin the journey of exploring your Soul. The fun of creating your personal deck of SoulCollage cards leads you on a path of self-inquiry, discovering your Soul, your Shadow and your inborn gifts.
The process of selecting images and making personal cards can serve as a reminder to hand-craft your life, to choose pieces that fit together meaningfully and with joy – both for you and the planet.
Enjoy being with a community of people who are also creating and consulting their cards. Allow the wisdom to bubble up and enrich your life.
Like a prism of light, our Soul has limitless facets, honor and acknowledge each knowing the whole is what makes you unique.

" Know that you are free to do whatever you want in this lifetime. Unleash the shackles of fear, paint the vision that resonates with your heart and move forward in faith and courage! Know you are being guided every step of the way. "
Guest Facilitator | Kathy Peters
Kathy is a seeker who enjoys exploring different ways to connect with self, others and the Divine. Nature is this incredible teacher who embraces us wherever we are and takes us where we need to go- many times we are unsure where our path is leading. Removing ourselves from routine and natural behavioral patterns enables us to go deeper to our center and that still small space that connects us to all living things. Pictures, Images, and Collages touch places within our souls that open us for deep learning to occur.
Kathy spent her professional career learning from people with significant intellectual disabilities and teaching others how to interact with people who may or may not use words to communicate. We all have incredible gifts to share with each other to make our world a place of acceptance, self-discovery and peace.
