No art "skills" are required or even relevant. This class is about integration and wholeness. It is ideal for anyone who seeks their: life purpose or soul's calling; a deeper relationship to themselves, others, and their soul; a connection to the unity that underlies reality; and an abiding love that comes from realizing that you indwell an animate or ensouled cosmos. This is not a superficial path for the feint of hear but one of deep transformation and healing.

What people are saying . . . 

This course helps you find your center. As Jung said: "I saw that everything, all paths I had been following, of steps I had taken, were leading back to a single point--namely, to the mid-point. It became increasingly plain to me that the mandala is the centre. It is the exponent of paths. It is the path to the centre, to individuation. I know that in finding the mandala as an expression of the self had attained what was for me the ultimate." 
I really feel that you have made such a huge contribution to our souls, to our artistic creative selves. . . You have created a furthering of  pathways for us to look at the artist, the archetypal artist, and give us a place where we can have soul. I would like to have a lot more Jungian work like this.

Heather & Mandalas

A well-warn path 

I have created mandalas as a healing form for over 30 years, walking this path to integrate lost memories and parts of myself and life. Beginning with simple forms, I integrated the symmetry of the mandala in my art and life in new and evolving ways.

Nature & Creativity

A way to co-create

 Over the past decade I have created more and more nature-based mandalas as a form of earth prayer. This practice is integrate in this course, offering a chance to collaborate and co-create with nature using found objects as a form of gratitude for the natural world.

Darkness in the depths

“There is no coming to consciousness without pain. People will do anything, no matter how absurd, in order to avoid facing their own Soul. One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious.” C G Jung  

Journeying from darkness to light

“When everything is lost, and all seems darkness, then comes the new life and all that is needed.” Joseph Campbell
This weekend retreat is scheduled in the evening to align to the darkness, harnessing the power of dreams and the mysterious unknown. While this course digs deep into the archetypal substrata that provides rich nutrients for our growth, it (like all Soul of Creativity offerings) is rooted in the psychology we share: soul. So, on its deepest level, this is about establishing and
