The next Heart Path Retreat is scheduled for May 12th -18th, 2014! Inspirational speaker, author and relationship specialist Eve Eschner Hogan and Artist Beth Marcil  team up to bring you this extraordinary event! Join us for the Soul’s Creative Journey Retreat!!

Eve Eschner Hogan is an inspirational speaker, author, relationship specialist and creative spirit. She is the creator of the Spiral Labyrinth Calendar and the Creating the Time of Your Life journal process. Eve served as the senior editor for two of the Chicken Soup for the Soul books and was a story contributor to several others, so she also brings a creative writing expertise to the table to help you capture your memoirs in “soul” style. Eve is passionate about evoking creativity, intuition and wisdom through journaling and journeying…in the labyrinth, through meditation, and self-inquiry and exploration. She has trained with Lucia Capacchione in the art of journaling with the non-dominant hand and shares this process as a means of bypassing the judgmental and controlling left brain, to access the creativity and insight of the right brain.

Beth Marcil is a widely recognized visual artist and creative workshop facilitator. An honor graduate of Ringling College of Art and Design, she is adept at a variety of mediums, in a wide range of approaches. Combining her love of art and creative process with her deep appreciation for their power to heal, Beth offers clients much more than her impressive breadth of artistic knowledge and her infectious enthusiasm. It is also her personal authenticity and gentle guidance that makes a lasting impression on those who work with her. Simply put, Beth Marcil is someone that people intuitively trust. A popular visual journaling instructor and trained SoulCollage® facilitator, Beth has 30 years of experience as a ‘creative midwife’ for those who wish to explore their inner worlds and rediscover the magic of artistic play.

NATURE is an amazing teacher and this entire retreat is held in one of the world’s most beautiful places, The Sacred Garden Retreat on the sacred island of Maui. Allow nature to open your heart to let your creative nature flow. The accommodations are charming…

For Registration Packet and information contact Lisa at HeartPathRetreats@gmail.com or call 808-243-PATH (7284)

The focus of this retreat is creative self-expression, self-exploration, self-discovery and the development of your Inner Vision! Gain new tools and skills for deepening your relationship with self, which in turn will improve all your relationships with others!

• Rediscover the MAGIC of artistic play!

• Learn mixed media techniques to enhance your creative expression.

Tap into your Intuition to reveal the art in your soul!

• Discover journaling techniques that allow you to express your deepest wisdom and heal your heart.

Experience the labyrinth as a metaphoric journey into your own center.

Enhance your self-esteem through self-discovery and self-expression!

• Gain improved relationship skills — with your self, others and with Spirit!

 

Creating a personal journal as a vehicle for artistic expression is a powerful way to engage in the creative process. Imagine….dipping into brilliant colors, spreading them onto paper with wild abandon, scribbling, doodling, collaging, layering, scraping, tearing, gluing, painting with your hands; there is a great wisdom in this kind of spontaneous outpouring! We remember important things about ourselves that we almost forgot, things that lead us back to balance. A deep inner knowing arises when adult self and child self join hands in the soul’s journey. Join us as we guide you in using materials that will expand your “tool kit” of techniques for self-expression and self-discovery while gently encouraging you to develop your inner vision.

Not only will this retreat be fun and joyful, but powerful ever-lasting tools and skills for self-mastery will be explored. You will return home a healthier, happier person with access to entire realms of your being you may have only previously glimpsed…..

 Monday, May 12, 2014 Arrive and Get Settled

 5:00pm Dinner and Orientation and opportunity to meet Heart Path Journey’s amazing practitioners! Our practitioners will be available for private sessions during the week…healing of the deep heart, nutritional guidance, meditation skills, massage, facials, acupuncture, yoga, relationship skills, clarity coaching, intuitive readings…. We have experts in a myriad modalities here to serve your specific needs.

Tuesday, May 13

 7:00-9:00 Beach Walk (and/or swim!) A practitioner-guided walk along one of Maui’s most beautiful beaches! A beautiful way to get oriented to Maui and your retreat, while greeting the day and being caressed by the soft saltwater breezes of Maui’s beautiful North Shore.

9:30-10:30 Breakfast and Free Time A continental-style breakfast will be served of wholesome and organic cereals, local fruits, bagals and hard-boiled eggs. EXCELLENT coffee is an important feature of a great retreat (LOL) and we will make fresh ground coffee to start the day (and upon request). Teas and juices will also be available.

10:30-1:00 Insight to Self with Eve Hogan

During this session we explore a deep understanding of the human spirit and the ego mind, and tools for accessing our authentic essence, inner wisdom and sense of self-esteem. It seems that sense self-esteem  diminishes over time such that by the time we are young adults many of us are essentially crippled by our negative self-talk, lack of confidence and the unconscious manipulative behaviors that ensue. This session will deepen your understanding and compassion for the human experience, provide a clear understanding of the ego’s misguided attempts to protect us and teach you how to turn your self-esteem around. This session will both deepen your understanding of yourself, and anyone else you are in relationship with. This will begin-or strengthen- the journey of self-love and authenticity, which is the first ingredient to a harmonious, sustainable relationship.

This session also sets the stage for the work we are about to begin of self-exploration and discovery. Self-expression and creativity are often sabotaged by negative self-talk and criticism. The Insight to Self session will help you discover how to tame that negative voice and align with your authentic self instead. This skill will help you throughout the week and well beyond into your every day life!

In this session you will be introduced to the process of drawing with your non-dominant hand and offered an opportunity to take a visual peak at what your life looks and feels like to you know…and begin the process of creating a visual affirmation of how you want it to look!

1:00-3:00 Catered Lunch  and free time Organic soups, wraps and salads…..DELICIOUS and HEALTHY….

 

3:00-6:00 Introduction to Creative Visual Journaling with Artist Beth Marcil

1:00-3:00 Creating the Time of Your Life with Eve

(Time Mindfulness)
Time is the canvas upon which we create our lives. The Creating the Time of Your Life session offers you a perspective on time that will change the way you look at it, the way you use it and the way you track it. Utilizing the Spiral Labyrinth Calendar of the Year and circular daily pages for planning and recording your time in a way that accesses and utilizes BOTH the right and left brain is an infinitely more fun and memorable means of tracking your dreams, successes, and progress on the journey of life. Time if your canvas, and you are the artist of your life!

Relationships—we are all either trying to get into one, get out of one, understand one, improve one or heal from one. Relationships often turn out to be ego battle ships instead of an authentic expression of love. What people don’t often realize is that CREATIVITY is one of the BEST  relationship skills!

In this session relationships dynamics will be explored along with an introduction to powerful and practical tools for transcending the ego, aligning your words, thoughts and actions with what you want to create.
