Series: Soulfulness Retreat

This retreat is full. If you'd like to add your name to a waiting list, please call 608-791-5295.

As humans, we have a great longing to experience a full, meaningful life. We try to accomplish this in many ways, but the depth of the soul is often still hungry. This soul loss might feel like discontentment or unfulfillment, like a void in our self or happiness. One way we can develop soulfulness is by connecting with the land and natural world through a nature dialogue. This retreat will invite you on a journey of discovery through speaking and listening, writing and solitude, to a deeper understanding of your place in the world around you. Inspired by Bill Plotkin’s work in the book, Soulcraft, our time out on St. Joseph’s Ridge will be a nature-based approach to connecting on a soul-level with all living beings.

Some art materials will be provided for you to use, including oil pastels, watercolors and colored pencils. Please bring a drawing/watercolor pad and any other art materials you might want to use.

Jan Wellik teaches Environmental Studies at UW-La Crosse and English at Viterbo University. She is founder of Eco Expressions, a nature writing program, and the author of the Nature Writing Field Guide for Teachers.
