" Words of Wisdom that Feed the Soul"
What feeds the "Story" of your Precious Soul?

“To me, art begets art. Painting feeds the eye
just as poetry feeds the ear, which is to say
that both feed the soul.”
—Susan Vreeland

Come "play" with "words" and unravel your inner wisdom!

(quiet, input, creative process, community, shared downtime)

Personal Reflection using playful "word crafting" 
will highlight the retreat.  
So, what words will feed,the "story" of your Precious Soul?

Scandinavian Lodge is located
on the quiet side of  Door County, in Sister Bay, WI
This weekend will provide  participants
to dig into their memory and experience
for the words to poetically uncover
and craft the inner wisdom of
their "one wild" and "precious" life
  This experience requires attentiveness
and willingness to listen deeply
 to Spirit through an open heart.
