During our time together we will use both the labyrinth and the SoulCollage® process as guides to access our own inner resources and intuition. Using one of these practices alone will make a difference in your life, but used together they amplify and deepen each other because they are both languages of the soul. They enable us to access our inner wisdom and deepen our understanding of ourselves as we journey on this path called life. Both processes allow us to create a sense of order out of the information that bombards us from all directions, and both encourage us to develop a higher level of awareness which enables us to thrive in the complex and ever-changing world in which we live.
Activities will include:
- Creating SoulCollage® cards using symbolic imagery
- Creating your own simple Finger Labyrinth
- Learning ways to add the symbolic energy of the labyrinth to your SoulCollage® cards
- Using your SoulCollage® cards as a doorway to your intuitive wisdom
- A facilitated Labyrinth walk
This workshop will give you an embodied experience of the labyrinth together with a creative and easy way to process your experience. During our time together you will experience walking the labyrinth and creating with images to make your own unique collage cards. We will see what messages arise from within as we explore symbol and metaphor.
Each participant will receive a kit containing a set of 10 blank cards to make your SoulCollage® cards together with clearbags to protect them, a glue stick and materials for your finger labyrinth. A rich selection of collage images will also be provided.

Catherine Anderson, Faculty
The labyrinth Catherine constructed in her backyard in 2007 has been an important element in her mindfulness and creativity practices and Catherine loves showing others how the labyrinth can support us in quietening our mind and uncover our creativity. She is the author of Journaling the Labyrinth Path, a book of finger labyrinths, quotes and journal prompts inspiring you to find your unique work in the world, and Meeting Your Soul on the Labyrinth: SoulCollage® and the Labyrinth as Pathways for Transformation.
Catherine uses the labyrinth, SoulCollage®, expressive arts, poetry and mindfulness as pathways for self-discovery and as ways of uncovering meaning and purpose in life. Her personal journey of self-discovery has taken her from a career as an attorney to photography-franchise owner, to creativity-workshop facilitator.
Photography is another creative passion for Catherine and her book The Creative Photographer won a Silver Nautilus Award in the Creative Process Category in 2012. As a SoulCollage® Facilitator Trainer, Catherine loves teaching others how to facilitate workshops using the SoulCollage® process which uses images as a form of “soul language” to access our inner wisdom.
As a life-long learner, Catherine has been fortunate to train with Jean Houston, Seena Frost, Lauren Artress, Jan Phillips and many other wise teachers. In addition to her work in the US, Catherine leads creative pilgrimage retreats in South Africa, France, Italy, Mexico and Portugal.
