Practices for Sustaining Lives of Meaning, Joy, and Beauty



Walking the Beauty Way

With an eye made quiet by the power of harmony,
and the deep power of joy,
we see into the life of things.
— William Wordsworth

Both new and seasoned SoulCollagers are welcome to The Walking the Beauty Way Retreat which gathers a circle of 6-8 souls who are intent on bringing more Light into a world that seems to be getting darker. You'll be able to pause and refresh your spirit through an in-depth contemplation of the Neter of Beauty, its potential to restore balance and harmony, and to facilitate change in your inner and outer worlds.

You can expect a delicious mix of the hands-on creativity of SoulCollage®, the quietude of meditation, and a solid grounding in practical skills to carry you forward after the retreat. Surprises, Synchronicities and the Sacred will enliven and enlighten your Soul. Plus you will delight in the joy of shared ritual and soul stories.

Seena Frost says in her book SoulCollage® Evolving: An Intuitive Collage Process for Self-Discovery and Community, “The SoulCollage® process is a way to tend soul and explore psyche at the same time.”

Meditation allows the mind to be calm like the surface of the pond. Then we are able to see beneath the pond’s surface as well as above it.

To know how to choose a path with heart is to learn how to follow intuitive feeling. Logic can tell you superficially where a path might lead to,
but it cannot judge whether your heart will be in it.
