Imagining (& Imaging) Renewal: A SoulCollage Retreat (2:00 PM - 12:00 PM)

This journey through images to renewal will be valuable for any woman who is interested in renewal and fooling around with images! We will make cards, explore the SoulCollage process in depth and allow the images we choose to speak to us and through us. (NO prior experience with SoulCollage necessary!)

SoulCollage is a process of discovery, play and community art making where we intuitively choose images and create small collages, eventually creating a deck of "cards", each card a "mirror of self and soul". Working with images allows us express our selves & souls in a way that goes beyond words (and when there ARE no words). This retreat weekend will allow space for deep play, creativity, and reflection.


Retreat Leader
Judith Prest, LMSW, a published poet, photographer and collage artist, holds certificates in Expressive Arts, Creativity Mentoring and SoulCollage facilitation. A retired school social worker, she now does her "real work" of creativity coaching at retreat centers, retirement communities, prisons, community agencies and at Spirit Wind Studio, where she lives and works.

REGISTRATION FEES (Includes tuition, art materials, 2 nights lodging and 5 meals at Wiawaka)
EARLY BIRD - $395.00 ~ Registration & full payment by June 1, 2015
REGISTRATION: $445.00 - Registration & full payment due by July 1, 2015
CANCELLATIONS: After July 17, a $75.00 cancellation fee will be charged.
