Winter 2017 Creative Group -

Anatomy of the Spirit, Soul Center Exploration

Thursdays, January 19th to March 23rd

         9am to 11:30am

         For Goodness Sake, Truckee

For years, Arts In Wellness Creative Groups have provided a forum that fosters personal reflection, creative inspiration, and significant growth. Participants find that the accepting and supportive environment allows them to discover their unique pathways to creativity while bearing witness to others’ creative exploration. “The depth of awareness and connection achieved in the Creative Group is quite remarkable” says one Creative Group alumnus, “one that must be experienced to be truly understood.”

In this class we will explore the book Anatomy of the Spirit- The Seven Stages of Power and Healing by Caroline Myss.

  • Each week we will read a chapter of the book, and during the class explore the energetic qualities and power of the Chakra system.

  • There will be short guided meditations to connect our mind and body and soul to the learning.

  • We will deepen our relationship and understanding through a collage process that taps into our inner-healer.

  • There will be time for participants to share through a Council process which will be clearly defined as a circle of safety and sacred sharing.

Further exploration is available through SoulCollage® with local SoulCollage® facilitator Christine Sproehnle

"The universe buries strange jewels deep within us all, and then stands back to see if we can find them"

- Elizabeth Gilbert

by Brooke Bishop

“A creative life is an amplified life. It’s a bigger life, a happier life, an expanded life, and a hell of a lot more interesting life. Living in this manner—continually and stubbornly bringing forth the jewels that are hidden within you—is a fine art, in and of itself.”

― Elizabeth Gilbert
