SoulCollage Retreat 2018

Come Wild Women

Come circle with others on a similar path
Come eat nourishing food
Come drink in the fresh air of the country
Come reconnect to your Wild Soul

It feels to me that something is swirling, women are feeling a calling. Many of us are waking up to how disconnected we have been from our bodies, from our truths. Society has tried hard to control our wild instinctual nature. But things are changing.

Come connect with your Wildness.

Our Wild Soul is what makes us women. It is our inner knowing, our intelligent bodies, our loving hearts and also our fierce protective nature.

We’ll weave this theme throughout this weekend of SoulCollage®, allowing it to emerge as our Wild Souls need.

  • Have you been curious to learn about SoulCollage®?
  • Have you made a bunch of cards and want to do more with them?
  • Do you want a significant chunk of time to deepen into your SoulCollage® practice?
  • Or perhaps you’ve just been wanting to get away and don’t know a thing about SoulCollage®!

Whether you have explored SoulCollage® before or it’s all new to you, this is your chance to take time for yourself and learn about or deepen into this creative transformational process.

SoulCollage® is both a process of creating your own oracle or wisdom cards and a practice of accessing the guidance and wisdom of those cards.

The process is simple: 1) intuitively select images, 2) collage the images onto cards, and 3) consult the cards. These cards then represent our own Self and can provide guidance and a way to connect with our inner wisdom.

Read “Musings on the Wild Woman Archetype” article.

This event is for women only.

The retreat will be held at Prairie Oaks Institute, a previously sustainable family farm that is now a retreat center.

We will be staying and eating in the old “Farmhouse” that offers a full kitchen, gathering spaces, and 3 bedrooms with twin beds sleeping up to 14 people in shared rooms.

(I am also exploring the possibility of camping options and using a second house for sleeping. “Harvest House” has a couple of bedrooms if people need privacy or shared beds (first come first serve if available). Get in touch if this is of interest to you.)

We will also have access to the “Granary”, a renovated old farm building (about a 10 minute walk from the farmhouse) onto which they added a very large screened-in porch. This means that, weather permitting, we can do SoulCollage® outside!

Next to the Granary there is a large labyrinth mowed into the grass.

Parker Palmer says this about Prairie Oaks Institute:

“Through its programs, Prairie Oaks Institute offers life-giving support to people and the planet.”

I will be your guide for this weekend getaway. Find out more about me, Cheryl Kempton, here.


Fri 15 June
5:30 pm – Arrive, settle in, social time
6:30 – Dinner
7:30 pm – Circle:  Greetings, Introductions, SoulCollage® Basics

Sat 16 June
Lots of SoulCollage® Card-making & Reading,
Good Food, and Meaningful Conversation

Sun 17 June
More SoulCollage® Card-Making & Reading
4:00 pm – Depart

We’ll start by gathering on Friday evening for a meal, introductions, and SoulCollage® basics. We’ll close on Sunday afternoon. In between we’ll have quiet time for card making, group time for card readings, free time for whatever your heart desires, and meal time for eating good food.

Interspersed among SoulCollage® card making and reading will be explorations of topics (and perhaps activities) that will allow us to deepen into our SoulCollage® practice and/or explore the Wild Woman theme. But rather than schedule it all out, I’m allowing my own Wild Soul to release control and go with whatever feels most relevant in the moment.

While I really hope everyone can stay for the whole weekend, there is the option to leave after the dinner on Saturday night for anyone who really wants to attend but just can’t do Sunday. The price will be discounted $40 for this option.

Wild Women honor their bodies, taking good care of and listening to them. And for many of us, our bodies are calling for nourishing healing food.

The ingredients for these good healthy meals will be provided and included in the price. Because we’ll be a small group staying in a farmhouse, we’ll take turns sharing in the preparation and clean-up of most or all of the meals.

My intention is to accommodate all dietary needs to the best of my ability. This information will be requested after you register. Dietary needs for participants registering after Friday 6/8 may not be able to be accommodated.

A meal plan will be provided to registered participants a few days before the retreat.

The price includes accommodation for 2 nights (single beds in shared rooms), 6 meals, SoulCollage® facilitation, and images and materials for making SoulCollage® cards. (Each participant will receive a SoulCollage® “starter pack” that includes 8 blank cards, glue, & other materials.)

Full Price:  $400
