Audrey offers weekend retreats designed for those who would like to delve into the realm of personal and spiritual exploration through music and art making. You will have the opportunity to experience a musical soul journey (optional) and to spend time creating SoulCollage® cards. The weekend includes the option of individual sessions with Audrey to work more closely with your SoulCollage® cards.

If you have been working with SoulCollage® for some time and would like to deepen your work with this process, or if you are new to this work and would like time to practice and grow into the possibilities, this weekend will be an opportunity to learn more and to strengthen your practice.

If you are yearning for a weekend of reflection, creative inner work, and time spent in the company of kindred spirits, please consider giving your Self this gift.

Half day and day long workshops are also offered to groups who would like to experience transformational art making together.  Contact Audrey to inquire about this.

Then explore the realms of the four major aspects of Self that form the circle of the SoulCollage structure through guided imagery, collage making and journaling. You will leave with the beginnings of a personal guidance system made up of powerful cards that you have created, as well as a lifelong practice to sustain you as you continue to navigate your powerful inner circle.
