SoulCollage® and Your Mythic Story

  • Mercy Center 2300 Adeline Drive Burlingame, CA, 94010 United States (map)

Using the process of SoulCollage® and the labyrinth, this four-day retreat will give you the time and space to listen deeply to your Soul to uncover your unique Mythic Story. Both the labyrinth and SoulCollage® are gentle guides for times when you are on the threshold of transition or feel like you are standing on shifting sands. This time of unknowing and uncertainty can also be a time of rich possibility.

In this retreat you will explore these growing edges of life, and listen for what your Soul and the Archetypes at play in your life want for you. You will also create the landscape or “dancing ground” of your myth, and discover how this can support your mythic journey.

This retreat will be held at Mercy Center Burlingame, a 40-acre retreat center 15 miles south of San Francisco, California and 10 minutes from San Francisco International Airport (SFO).

Storytelling is at the heart of life. My imagination creates forms that give shape to otherwise sporadic events in everyday life. Gradually I recognize the meaning of my existence through my myth.
— Marion Woodman

You will be provided with a rich supply of images to create your SoulCollage® cards and have ample opportunity to create in the peace of the retreat center. The labyrinth walks will offer an opportunity to integrate and expand your connection to the images which are speaking to you. The pace of the retreat will be slow so you can dive deep, and all activities will be optional.

Activities will include:

  • SoulCollage® card making time

  • Labyrinth walks

  • Using your cards in conjunction with a labyrinth walk

  • Inspired story-writing using imagery and the imagination

  • Creating SoulCollage® portal and doorway cards

  • Using your cards for guidance on the connection between your mythic story and the gifts you have to offer and the Larger Story

  • How to use your cards and the labyrinth to support you on your journey after the Retreat

Each participant will receive:

  • Supplies to make your SoulCollage® cards

  • A Mythic Story Journal of quotations and journal prompts created specially for this retreat

  • A 60 page full-color Mythic Story Collage Imagery book full of portal, doorway and labyrinth images to use on your SoulCollage® cards

  • A pack of three different finger labyrinths

  • A pack of Catherine’s WordLight cards which you will turn into inspirations for writing

Archetypes do the weaving of all mythic and universal stories, and we, each one of us, are the threads with which they weave.

Your life is a sacred journey. And it is about change, growth, discovery, movement, transformation, continuously expanding your vision of what is possible, stretching your soul, learning to see clearly and deeply, listening to your intuition, taking courageous challenges at every step along the way. You are on the path... exactly where you are meant to be right now... And from here, you can only go forward, shaping your life story into a magnificent tale of triumph, of healing of courage, of beauty, of wisdom, of power, of dignity, and of love.
