Beautiful Zion National Park in Southern Utah provides the backdrop for the Sacred Soul Circle Workshop/Journey to Love.
This ancient desert, carved and shaped by the Virgin River, is the perfect place to be inspired and commune with your soul.
Do you have a sense that within there is something more of you yet to be?
We come together in a Sacred Soul Circle to bring our minds, bodies and spirits into alignment. We gather from all walks of life to warm ourselves and each other, to form circles of love, trust, support, and non judgment that allow us to share our "soul story". We inspire one another to release what is no longer useful while celebrating our seed dreams. We practice yoga and meditation, do altar work, create sacred art, drum, and sing. We call in spiritual support and engage in ceremony together. We begin our journey back to authenticity, rootedness and belonging.
This three day workshop supports the recovery of your relationship with your inner healer and artist so that you can embrace your unique gifts and soul-path. How can you be more loving, honoring and nurturing to yourself?
At this workshop, you will be:
Releasing limiting beliefs and attitudes through ceremony and the telling of your "soul story"
Identifying and working with your core wound
Practicing deep relaxation and meditation
Setting up and working with a portable healing altar
Connecting with the boundlessness of your being and the foundation of your true nature with gentle yoga practices
Learning how to flow with nature through the perspective of Ayurveda and seasonal eating
Clearing stuck energy through drumming, singing, and dancing
Coming up with a new story and “contract” for your life
Accessing the wisdom and tools of the healed divine feminine (applies to men and women)
Creating a healing mandala through a sacred art assignment
When we heal the wounds that have overgrown our dreams we are able to once again nurture our passions and birth our soulful work into the world.

"In the Circle, we are all equal. There is no one in front of you and there's nobody behind you. No one is above you; no one is below you. The Circle is sacred because it is designed to create unity"
- Lakota Wisdom
This beautiful quote sums up why I love the concept of a circle so much. Profound growth and healing is possible when we go beyond our titles and worldly achievements, to experience the more soulful aspects of ourselves and others.
My shamanic training involved participating in many circles. I shared my hopes and fears with dreamers from all walks of life and it often brought me to tears. I was among likeminded souls, finally, on a life changing journey of self-discovery. We didn't have to be similar in any other way to have a strong connection. There was a lot of love and respect, because we all knew what goes into seeking out such an experience.
The Sacred Soul Circle Workshop is something I started envisioning when I was pregnant with my son five years ago. It was a dream come true to finally see it launch in 2018. An unforgettable experience. I knew I had to turn it into an annual event, which brings me to this year’s second Sacred Soul Circle Workshop/Journey to Love.
Last year brought unexpected lessons in self-love and compassion. I was given the opportunity to revisit and work through childhood losses and early feelings of separation. My healing journey gave me the idea for a workshop that focuses on strengthening the inner artist and healer. It is my hope that some of these tools and techniques for uncovering the essential Self will make your journey to wholeness easier. Please share with anyone you think might benefit.

Jessika Jacob (Sacred Soul Art, Day 3)
When I was in middle school, I dropped out of the only art class I had ever taken when my teacher walked over to me, took the paintbrush out of my hand and said, "You're doing it wrong!" I stood up (being only 14 or 15 years old), probably said a few choice words, then walked out of her class and never went back. She almost killed my inner artist. How can anyone do art wrong?
I grew up watching my dad create incredible pieces of art. It seemed out of reach that I would ever paint like he did. I still don't. I never will. And now that I have young kids who sit and watch me paint, I have found myself reliving some of the moments I had with my dad. The words, "Don't bump my table," come out of my mouth more times in a day than I can count, along with explanations of why my kids can't paint like me yet.
I receive so many compliments of people saying, "I wish I had your talent!" My talent? I wouldn't say I am any more talented than anyone else. Far from it. We all have our own special gifts, and the world needs each of us to give of our passions freely. We can all make the world a better, more beautiful place when we follow our hearts and then SHARE them.
Toni Benevento (Gentle Morning Yoga, Day 2&3)
Yoga and wellness describe the total integration of body, mind, and spirit. If we strive to live this way – integrated & whole – the connectivity of all things is eventually brought to light. If yoga has an end-game that might be it: to reveal our Oneness; to experience true belonging within ourselves; to unify the heavens, humanity, and earth. Like many worthy endeavors, integration is a process. I teach to awaken a desire to engage with this process.
My yoga training is most aligned with the Vinyasa tradition of linking breath to movement through logical sequencing. However, exposure to many different teachers and traditions have allowed room for creativity in the practice that I share. My goal while teaching is to craft sequences that help students develop an intimate awareness of the breath throughout the entire body. Feeling the breath move through the body can cultivate a deep internal understanding. I strive to hold space for each student to explore this phenomenon through their Asana practice in the hopes that they will begin to discover the boundlessness of their being, the foundation of their true nature, and the inherent connection to each other and the planet.
Renee Thomas (Ayurvedic Nutrition, Day 2)
Once you learn about Ayurveda, you will always be lead back to it in some way or other in your journey and that is what happened to me. After years of different dieting and lifestyles that were said to be “healthy”, I still found myself depleted and empty.
Through all of these changes, one consistent lesson I learned is that our perception and habits are what create our reality and those can fluctuate in a moment if you don’t feel stable in your own body.
Ayurveda has helped me feel more stable so I can give more space to balance my mind and spirit. Ayurveda is the medicinal science of habit and I believe through supportive lifestyle habits, you can find peace on your path.
