Beginnings, Endings and that Place In-Between: A Women’s SoulCollage® Retreat
Sally Freed and Laurie Smith
Join SoulCollage® facilitators Laurie Smith and Sally Freed for a special retreat weekend at Kirkridge. We’ll explore the blessings and the challenges we often experience in times of change and transition. Open to women of all ages!
Through conversation, reflection and ritual, we’ll embark upon a creative journey which honors and celebrates where we’ve been, where we may be going, and the gifts of the present moment.
The simple, yet profound technique of SoulCollage® will allow deepening of our understanding of our own transition times, and how we can support the gestation, uncertainty or renewal that is stirring in our lives. No artistic experience is necessary!
Autumn is a perfect season to reflect upon transitions of the heart, body, mind and soul, and discover how the Earth might have something to teach us about ‘change’. There will be opportunities to enjoy down time and for outdoor play and exploration. Nourish your spirit at Kirkridge, a place of openness, welcome, beauty, hospitality, and creativity.
