Are you looking for a new way to pray?  Give yourself the gift of taking time for creative prayer, tending to your soul, and listening to the Holy Spirit within through the process of SoulCollage®.  Through the use of images, intuition and imagination we will create our own ‘holy cards’ and then utilize these as doors and windows to deeper contemplative prayer. If you want to explore what God is doing in your life, enliven your spiritual life, engage deeper with God and have a fun and creative time then join us for this weekend retreat.  Absolutely no art talent or experience is necessary.  All supplies are provided except for scissors!  This retreat will be led by Dr. Jane Steinhauser, a licensed counselor, trained spiritual director and certified SoulCollage® facilitator.

Embrace Your Creativity: A SoulCollage® Feast for Your Soul

A SoulCollage® Weekend Retreat by the Sea

OCTOBER 14-16, 2016 

Open to everyone! 



Creativity + Community = Sweet Medicine

"Images have a way of bypassing the chatter of our logical minds and nudging our deep soul wisdom where intuitive answers can be found and spoken."


Creativity soothes your heart, your hands, your soul, your eyes, your ears, and your mind.

When creativity joins with SoulCollage® and is applied to make and give voice to your own collaged cards, it becomes a playground and a training for your imagination, your perception, and your intuition. 


"Images have a way of bypassing the chatter of our logical minds and
nudging our deep soul wisdom where
intuitive answers can be found and spoken." 

~Seena Frost, Founder of SoulCollage® 

Through the practice of SoulCollage®, imagination, enhanced perception, and intuition become more available to you in everything you do, not just in creative pursuits. These innate qualities awaken and start to infuse daily tasks, deep work, relationships, and most crucially the relationship to your own self, which is the center and the anchor of who you are. 


A Retreat for You this Fall

Can you commit to giving yourself a spacious retreat — a whole weekend in a beautiful setting by the ocean with like-minded people? 

We will gather wisdom together….harvest the gifts of our soul and share the joy that erupts from creativity, purpose, and meaning. Make cards that are meaningful to you, find inspiration, and connect with others in beauty, silence, and sharing

It is rare to find a more supportive environment than the one that grows around SoulCollage® activities. In this Embrace Your Creativity retreat, we will:

  • Enjoy a relaxed schedule which can include walks on the beach, healthy food, time for reveries.
  • Delight in easy companionship with others also hungry for rest, beauty, play, and creativity without any pressure to perform.
  • Explore the portal of transformation available in every SoulCollage® card.
  • Start every circle with a centering "visualization in motion" to engage both brain hemispheres and our own kinesthetic wisdom to tune into our creativity.
  • Experiment with writing using free association to coax your Neters (the guides, allies and chellengers on your cards) to give you new insights.


Group working at Villa Maria


When we are in that place of self-love, passion, contentment, and enchantment with life and nature, everything we do is deeply affected and our aliveness and satisfaction radiates into every action and interaction. 



A Retreat Designed for Both Beginners and Veteran SoulCollagers

Beginners will have the pleasure of amazing personal discoveries, both visual and spiritual. The veterans will enrich the group with their experience and passion, and everyone will enjoy working in a group of likeminded people in a place so beautiful and safe that even your Inner Critic will lounge on the sand knowing that when working with your own cards you cannot go wrong even if you try.

If you are experienced with SoulCollage® already, you will find great enjoyment in reigniting or deepening your SoulCollage® practice in this beautiful setting on the cliffs overlooking the ocean and the beach below.

You will enjoy the visualizations and other practices designed to evoke numinous images and quicken the imagination. And you will learn new ways to work with the cards. 

​If you have been doing SoulCollage® for a while, you'll:

  • Renew your relationship with your cards.
  • Make new cards.
  • Ask questions.
  • Revisit some ways to use the cards and learn new ones.
  • Meet others who are inspired by SoulCollage®.

If you are new to the SoulCollage® method you will:

  • Start making SoulCollage® cards for your very own deck.
  • Learn the basics of SoulCollage® for your own SoulCollage® practice.
    • ​How to make cards
    • How to do SoulCollage® Readings
  • Receive tips on how to listen and trust your inner guidance.
  • Meet others who are also interested in creativity, self-discovery, and community. 

This Retreat Qualifies as the Pre-Requisite for a SoulCollage® Facilitator Training

If you are not yet a trained Facilitator, but may be thinking about taking the SoulCollage® Facilitator Training, you will be thrilled to know this weekend qualifies for the Training prerequisite (like taking aFundamentals of SoulCollage® workshop.) You will learn about the basic tenets of the method and go home with several personal cards made with your own hands, each ready to speak with its own voice, and you will have the basic tools to effectively continue on your own. 


The weekend workshop fee is $245. The fee does not include meals (see below for accommodations fees which include room and board -- or a commuter fee that covers two meals daily and use of the facility.)

This course meets the qualifications for 16 hours of continuing education credit for MFTs and/or LCSWs as required by the California Board of Behavioral Sciences. A certificate of attendance will be provided by SoulCollage Inc. #4889. Any participant who is licensed in another state must check with that state's licensing board to determine if credits granted in this course will be accepted by that board. This may be the final event for which we can award CEUs for CA MFTs and LCSWs as the BBS is no longer administering CEU providers.

The ATCB (Art Therapy Credentials Board) accepts SoulCollage® Institute and SoulCollage®  Facilitator Training CEUs for continuing education credit for ATR-BCs, because these courses are accepted for continuing education credits by the  California Board of Behavior Sciences mental health licensure board.

For those Boards who may not be familiar with SoulCollage® and its therapeutic benefits, we offer the following supplemental information, which was included in SoulCollage® Inc.’s application for CEU provider status which was accepted by the BBS in California. Download PDF.



Registration: 1:00-1:45 pm on Friday.
Workshop begins at 2:00 pm and ends about 1:00 pm on Sunday.
Mornings begin with breakfast at 8:00 am, and the daily program begins at 9:00 am.


Be sure to bring all your SoulCollage® cards. You do not need to bring images as those will be provided. If you are using 5 x 8 inch cards there will be blank cards provided. If your cards are another size, bring some blanks. Glue and scissors will be provided, but you can bring your own if you have special ones you like. If you prefer using an Exacto or precision knife, please bring it along with your own healing mat to work on. (Don’t pack scissors or knives in your carry-on luggage!)

Bring layers of clothes as the weather on the California coast can vary from quite warm to quite cool. 

Here are some items it might be handy to have:

  • Any special card-making supplies you want to use
  • Socks or slippers (optional) 
  • refillable water bottle
  • Ear plugs (optional)
  • All needed toiletries, including a hairdryer (There are none in the rooms.)
  • A flashlight is very helpful for guiding you around the grounds at night.
  • Rain gear and an umbrella are a good idea in some seasons. Check the weather when packing.
  • A 3-prong electrical plug converter if you have three-pronged devices. The rooms have 2-pronged plugs.
  • A beach towel, bathing suit, sun hat, and sunglasses might be useful. The beach is right outside the retreat center and it is often warm in October.
  • Any food needed for a special diet. There is a small, shared (with the residents and other workshop participants) refrigerator in the dining room for those who are on a special diet. Please bag and label your food if you bring some in.

Please do not wear perfume, essential oils or other scents as a courtesy to people who have environmental sensitivities.

Open Studio

Open Studio

Cet atelier est ouvert à tout le monde. Toutefois, c'est surtout un  lieu de pratique. C'est pourquoi il s'adresse en premier lieu aux personnes ayant déjà participé à une introduction au SoulCollage®. Si vous êtes en recherche d'un groupe de personnes intéressées qui veulent continuer à croître dans ce processus.

Si vous n'avez jamais travaillé avec le SoulCollage®, vous êtes également invitées à participer à l'atelier. Aucun enseignement ne sera donné. Ce sera une découverte par la pratique. Une session d'introduction est organisée dès qu'au minimum quatre personnes y sont intéressées.

L'Open Studio est un temps pour créer des cartes supplémentaires et pour le partage dans la communauté.

Le matériel est mis à disposition. Cet atelier est l'occasion de rencontrer d'autres personnes pratiquant le SoulCollage® et de favoriser votre propre voyage intérieur dans un environnement sûr et encourageant.
