Mappa Divina

With Heather Berndt

August 15 - 17, 2023

Where are you on the path with the divine? Do you have a sense of where you are going? Do you even know why? Mappa Divina© is a sacred visioning process rooted in the contemplative practices of map making and pilgrimage. It involves writing, collage, and prayer intended to promote communion with the divine and alignment with Godde’s highest good for your life. The process is like creating a vision board but dives deeper into your inner landscape and is oriented toward being and doing rather than having. At the end of the retreat, participants will have a set of words and images to guide them on their journey forward. Best of all, it’s fun!


No special skills needed and all activities are easily accessible. All that’s required is open hands and open hearts.
