Returning to Life, a Journey of Becoming Whole During Grief and Loss
October 12 One day JourneyCircles™ Retreat
Is it possible to feel alive and whole during a time of grief and loss? When past grief and loss spirals back into your life and you find your soul wandering in lonely places once more, how do you find your way back to yourself? The JourneyCircles™ Process provides a creative, gentle path for self-care and self-compassion that is both healing and restorative.
Through guided meditation and simple but powerful art making, you will care for your soul and create with the rich language of images. You will tell your story and restore your soul as you circle round to your center and find life once again.
While no prior JourneyCircles™ experience is necessary, this is an intermediate level program and participants should be prepared to explore deep and complex themes and be comfortable making collage. All art materials are provided. Participants are asked to bring one small object that will travel as a companion with them through this journey, along with a small writing journal and pen.
Welcoming the Wisdom of the Crone in Winter
November 16 One Day JourneyCircles™ Retreat
What is the nature of the mature woman? How can the winter season in its stillness, bareness and silence guide you into the interior life of the soul and teach you ways to step into the role of Wise Woman, Elder or Crone?
The JourneyCircles™ Process provides the framework of the journey, and creates a sacred creative space to explore who you are now and who you are becoming in this season of your life. Women of any age and at any stage of life can explore the archetype of the Crone to envision who they would like to become in years ahead. No prior JourneyCircles™ experience is necessary.
Participants are asked to bring two found images from magazines, books, etc., that symbolize the Wise Woman/Crone for them, along with a small writing journal and pen. All other art materials will be provided.
