Grounding Spiritual Practices to Transform the Chaos
-- A Labyrinth and SoulCollage® Retreat
Franciscan Spirituality Center, La Crosse, Wisconsin
Presenters: Deb Richards and Elise Lewis
Cost -- Full: $350 (includes two nights stay, all meals and supplies)
Commuter: $250 (includes Saturday lunch and supplies)
Using the deeply integrating spiritual practices of the labyrinth, SoulCollage® and various prayer practices, we will explore ways to probe the soul’s interiority to bring greater perception and peace to our being. SoulCollage® is a gentle and simple cut-and-paste art process involving images, intuition and imagination. The labyrinth is a symbolic journey that reflects the architecture of the soul. Together, these practices help us to access our inner knowing and experience healing and peace. Our time together includes labyrinth meditation, silence, SoulCollage® card making and group interaction, as well as optional prayer sessions. Each of these practices aid us in centering during these chaotic times and can serve to renew and deepen our Lenten journey. Elise Lewis fell in love with SoulCollage® in 2010 and become a certified facilitator in 2014. She is also a Veriditas-trained labyrinth facilitator and a genealogist. Deb Richards is a SoulCollage® facilitator, spiritual director, retreat leader and writer. She lives in Des Moines, Iowa, where she serves as faith formation director at St. Mary of Nazareth parish.
March Card Making: Monday, March 4th and Monday, March 18th at St. Mary of Nazareth Catholic Church, 4600 Meredith Drive, Des Moines. (Please RSVP to Yobel49@yahoo.com by the day of.)
