Journey to the Soul:
A Retreat to Nourish Mind, Body and Spirit
Angel Valley Retreat Center
Join transformational life coach and registered art therapist Ellaine Peck, and registered art therapist and counselor Camille Smith, as they guide you on a journey of self discovery. The body and breath will be our guides as we become fully present and mindful, deepening our understanding of ourselves and our place in the world through art, music and movement. Grounded in principles of pleasure and play and using multiple creative and contemplative practices participants will experience opportunities to:
• Discover inner strengths and resources
• Release self-limiting beliefs
• Illuminate personal vision
Focusing on creative process as an adventure in playful self-discovery we will shed old stories and limiting self-concepts creating a brilliant new vision of ourselves and our service in the world. Using masks, mandalas and guided visualization we will engage in sacred play and divine ritual, marveling at what emerges along the way. Movement, art, music, poetry, journaling and performance will be our tools for integrating and connecting the inner and outer worlds. Gratitude and compassion will figure prominently as we cultivate curiosity and wonder. Time and space will be incorporated for harvesting the rich gifts of the retreat and enjoying the beauty of the natural surroundings of Angel Valley. Our collective wisdom will be nurtured and shared through group experience. Participants are encouraged to bring a personal journal. All other supplies will be provided. No artistic skill is needed to participate or benefit from these processes.
Next trip dates to be announced.

“When art making, we ignite the imagination, we inherently instill HOPE;
a possibility of feeling or being different;
the awareness we have the ability to CREATE a positive future for ourselves.”
