SOULISTRY is the coined word of a book (Soulistry: Artistry of the Soul) as well as workshops, retreats and speaking engagements all mean to help connect the ordinary with the extraordinary … spirituality and creativity … art and soul in new, playful, creative and innovative ways. Soulistry Workshops and Retreats can be modified to meet the needs of the group – workshop format or retreat format; day-long, weekend or week-long length; groups of 4 – 10; large groups. Some of the retreats and workshops offered by Soulistry include:
Mime, music, creative spirituality journaling, movement, laughter and silence are interwoven in the creation of a personal clown as a ministry of clowning is nurtured.
Awakening the Creative Spirit
As the ‘ordinary’ is transformed into the sacred, artistic soul-space is created, creativity is re-awakened, playful nature is released and spirituality is enriched in new ways
Creative Spirituality Journaling
In a quiet and sacred experience of artistic reflection, renewal and creativity, discover how ‘sight’ becomes ‘insight’ and uncover the invisible presence of the holy in the visible world and within.
Spirit captures heart and mind as joy and creativity-within are discovered while working with a spiritual advisor, published author and Creative Spirituality Artist who encourages that intangible soul-essence of life in a variety of artistic experiences.

A Spirituality of Play

Mandala Creative Workshop
Mandalas have been used around the world as a form of mindfulness and creativity for centuries. The Mandala (a Sanskir word for sacred cirlce) is both a process and a tool that can bring us to a place of inspired creativity and deepened spirituality.
The primary intention of the Mandals is to fully open ourselves to “being present” in the artistic process rather than creating a finished product.
The Mandala process provides simple techniques to experience creative self-expression and feelings of stillness, peace and spiritual renewal.
Time will be spent exploring Word Mandalas and how they can nourish spirituality.
