The Mary Paintings are aspects of the Divine Feminine that were conceived through dreams and shamanic journey work. They were inspired by Mary Magdalene and Catherine’s work with women in psychotherapy and expressive arts. In this retreat, we will meditate and reflect on some of the images of The Mary Paintings in order to connect with aspects of the Divine Feminine for ourselves, and in turn, for our work in the world today. While we honor each woman’s woundedness, this weekend will not focus on participants’ personal stories, but rather on the healing qualities of the Divine Feminine. We will use various meditative exercises, creative expression and discussion to achieve this aim. Catherine believes that the Divine Feminine is needed more than ever in our world today to support the evolution of consciousness and the aspiration for all beings to live in harmony, peace and love.
The program will begin on Friday with dinner at 5:30 p.m. in the McAuley Dining Room, followed by an opening gathering at 7:00 p.m. The retreat will end at Sunday noon.
Catherine N. Steinberg is a licensed psychotherapist and artist who resides in Guilford, CT. She is a participating artist in the Shoreline Arts Trail and her studio is open by appointment. See catherinensteinberg.com.

Also, bring a simple outfit that embodies your inner self and signifies an aspect of the Divine Feminine. Mary Painting Cards will be available for purchase during the retreat.
