Creative Paths to Awakening: T.S. Eliot and Carl Jung Retreat


  • Roslyn Retreat Center 8727 River Road Henrico, VA, 23229 United States (map)

Take an inner journey to (re)discover the sacredness of YOUR life. This 4-day retreat will utilize T.S. Eliot’s poems “Four Quartets” and Jung’s concept of individuation, allowing for deeper guidance on our own spiritual paths. We’ll create art, access our body’s wisdom, and make time for reflection. Jung said, “Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside dreams; who looks inside awakens.” This program provides a portal into the heart, mind, and body as we hold space for this exploration.

Margie Matheson’s art images relating to Eliot’s quotes will add a rich component for contemplation, manifesting into a personal art collage. In preparation for the creation of our collages, we will have group discussion as well as time set aside for body and breath awareness, personal reflection, and journaling.
