Imagination is the most powerful tool we have to make sense of the complex world and times in which we live. In this retreat we will explore what our lives might look like if we used our imagination to direct our energy and passion towards the longings of our Soul. Using the labyrinth and SoulCollage®, Lauren Artress and Catherine Anderson will guide you to discover new ways to reclaim, replenish and rediscover your imagination.

This retreat offers you to a time of stillness from the outside world in which to nourish your soul, still your mind and explore your imagination. We will explore how you can use your imagination as an inner compass … a gateway to your inner world … a decoder for an often noisy, messy and complex outer world. You’ll spend each day nourishing your connection to your interior world while learning new ways to direct and focus your energy into creating the world you want for yourself and others.

Through Lauren’s deep and rich labyrinth teachings and Catherine’s SoulCollage® practices, the creative landscape of the imagination comes alive as you explore new practices to befriend, strengthen and bring clarity to your imagination.

In addition to a rich selection of collage images, participants will receive their own book of “Imaginary Images” to use in the retreat as well as a box of SoulCollage® supplies which will include 12 blank cards and clear bags and glue stick. No labyrinth or SoulCollage® experience is necessary to attend this retreat.

If you would like accommodation at the Mercy Center for the duration of the Retreat, please select the accommodation option during the registration process. Overnight accommodation is $150 for Friday and Saturday night and includes breakfast and dinner.

Catherine Anderson, Faculty

The labyrinth Catherine constructed in her backyard in 2007 has been an important element in her mindfulness and creativity practices and Catherine loves showing others how the labyrinth can support us in quietening our mind and uncover our creativity. She is the author of Journaling the Labyrinth Path, a book of finger labyrinths, quotes and journal prompts inspiring you to find your unique work in the world, and Meeting Your Soul on the Labyrinth: SoulCollage® and the Labyrinth as Pathways for Transformation.

Catherine uses the labyrinth, SoulCollage®, expressive arts, poetry and mindfulness as pathways for self-discovery and as ways of uncovering meaning and purpose in life. Her personal journey of self-discovery has taken her from a career as an attorney to photography-franchise owner, to creativity-workshop facilitator.

Photography is another creative passion for Catherine and her book The Creative Photographer won a Silver Nautilus Award in the Creative Process Category in 2012.  As a SoulCollage® Facilitator Trainer, Catherine loves teaching others how to facilitate workshops using the SoulCollage® process which uses images as a form of “soul language” to access our inner wisdom.

As a life-long learner, Catherine has been fortunate to train with Jean Houston, Seena Frost, Lauren Artress, Jan Phillips and many other wise teachers. In addition to her work in the US, Catherine leads creative pilgrimage retreats in South Africa, France, Italy, Mexico and Portugal.

And co-taught with:
