How often are you stepping away to feed your spirit?
In terms of holistic health, people often talk about their diets and nutrition in terms of foods, supplements, detoxes and cleanses. I can't recommend enough stepping away to feed your spirit as a way to truly care for your health holistically. The noise of the world blocks out our ability to discern and understand what it is we need in life to be healthful & happy.
Last weekend, I was able to retreat for the 3rd time to my favorite spot, St. Benedict Center, Schuyler, NE. I participated in a retreat teaching about Soul Collage called Soulfully You, Self & Spirit Retreat. The picture above are some of the bright beautiful collages I was able to make. Please visit Jodi's blog to view more beautiful images resulting from her retreats.
If you live in my area, go there. I have gone out on my own and you may go for the day. If you don't live in this area, find a place like it! I feel their programming, facilities and the monastery itself are worth the drive. You can view more of my images from this retreat at more on my Instagram feed.
My take away from this retreat: I never thought about using my artistic talent to express and discover what it brings out spiritually. And I certainly didn't think about it as a way to deepen my relationship with God. It was the perfect experience for me to have and I will definitely continue with Soul Collage.
