Biography

In addition to facilitating SoulCollage® workshops, retreats, and card making groups, I enjoy writing, and serving as a spiritual director across a variety of spiritual traditions.  My husband, Jack, and I have made our home in Des Moines for the past ten years, where we are both semi-retired.  (He's a golf pro, whose primary interest has turned to fly-fishing.)

SoulCollage® has been a wonderful enhancement for my other pusuits, and I usually offer several SoulCollage® workshops and retreats each year, in combination with other spiritual practices such as The Labyrinth and The Enneagram.  I love collaborating with others, and have been told that I bring out the best in people.  

Check my postings to join in our frequent (twice a month on average) card making gatherings!  

 

 

Description of SoulCollage® work

As a SoulCollage® Facilitator, I enjoy incorporating SoulCollage® into my Spiritual Direction practice, as well as offering workshops, retreats, and opportunities to gather for card making.

Personal work with own SoulCollage® cards

SoulCollage®  is an almost daily contemplative practice in my own lifeI make at least of couple of cards each week, as a way to discern what is going on in my inner life.  As a Spiritual Director, I find it's critical to work with tools like this, and in a constant way.  I also rely on journaling, Centering Prayer, and mandala making.  All of these things fit together well, and support each other as spiritual practices.

Other Notes

I am available to offer Spiritual Direction for individuals as well as couples, via SKYPE, ZOOM, telephone, email, or in person.

    Experience labyrinth meditation, silence, SoulCollage card-making and group interaction.

    Using the deeply integrating spiritual practices of SoulCollage® and the labyrinth, we will explore ways to probe the

    soul’s interiority to bring greater perception and peace to our being.

    SoulCollage is a gentle and simple cut-and-paste art process involving images, intuition and imagination.

    The labyrinth is a symbolic journey that reflects the architecture of the soul.

    Together, these practices help us to access our inner knowing and experience healing and peace.

    Our time together will include labyrinth meditation, silence, SoulCollage card-making and group interaction.

    Each of these practices aids us in centering during these chaotic times and can help renew and deepen                                                                                                                      the spiritual journey.
