More than creating a portrait, we explore the essential elements of painting from ritual art & symbols to composition & technique.

Deep Dive in Retreat
+ 12 weeks

Learn critical information to access & express your soul's essence.

Creating a Soul Portrait = Soul Power

Create an image of yourself & soul in a process of deep reflection, dreamwork & guided visualization at a weekend retreat. Then deepen into 12 weeks of art medicine to create a personal symbol, animal spirit totem, mandala & dream vision to anchor your soul & experience in art that embodies & reminds you of soul. More than art, this is a journey into deep creativity, a window into soul in which you are mirrored & seen, guided home to your Self. No art experience is necessary (or beneficial). You will receive everything you need.

Portraits invite & invoke soul

The first time I realized that art is invocative of soul I was painting a portrait of someone who had died. As I painted, they came closer. So will your soul.

The end result is a portrait that not only helps captures the energy & essence of YOU but transforms you in the process. Come play with creativity as an archetypal practice & power lost in modern times.

Is this path for you?

No art "skills" or psychological knowledge are required. In fact, there are no prerequisites other than a willingness to explore the depths of yourself, life & soul. This class is about deep transformation, requiring a sincere commitment, authenticity & courage. It is ideal for anyone who seeks their life purpose or soul's calling in a way that is playful & fun. In creating your soul portrait, you are deepening your relationship to soul, Self, others & world. Are you ready to step up & step in to really see & be seen? If so, you will come away with a tangible reminder of who you are & what you are called to do, a vision that can reflect your inner nature & calling to step into your life & visible presence in the world. Under the paint, you are preparing & commiting to soul.

Self-Portrait your way . . .

While we will explore different techniques & approaches as you are guided on this journey, you will also tour different archetypal forms of expression from the Judeo-Christian, Buddhist, Hindu, Native American & other cultural perspectives on ritual spiritual art. This will include a specific look at icons & mandalas which are often combined in all religious (meaning "binding" sprit in matter) iconography. This path will give us a tour of the major archetypal forms of sacred art & then set you free (with access to Heather) for advice & guidance. It is time to be you, but sometimes it helps to view some art first.
