The Earth as Soul Friend
A JourneyCircles™ Retreat with Jan Blencowe
Do you sense a deep soul connection to the earth? Do you find that your most profound spiritual experiences occur in nature? Do you hear the whispering echoes of the spiritual world and become more certain of the things unseen when you walk in the woods among the trees? If so, then you have experienced the earth as your anam cara, what the Celts knew as a "soul friend."
During this retreat you will create a beautiful triptych that explores your connection to nature and the Source of creation. Rich imagery will be provided and you will gather images that reflect on your experiences with nature and Spirit. Simple cutting, tearing and gluing techniques will be used to create collage imagery on your triptych, which will become the centerpiece of a personal altar or sacred space you can use for prayer and meditation. Time will be provided for you to take a short nature walk to gather elements (stones, shells, blossoms, etc.) to include in your sacred space.
The retreat will be held on Saturday, April 28, from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. The $75 fee covers the program cost, materials and lunch.
Jan Blencowe is a certified Creative Depth coach, licensed JourneyCircles™ facilitator, an experienced retreat leader, and an artist with over 30 years’ experience.
