Wondering where to go next on your personal journey of self-exploration and healing?

Your Soul Journey begins with YOUR personal mythology, the collection of fundamental stories that help you make sense of the world. Your personal myths hold the origins of all your beliefs, fears, rules, dreams and passions.

In this self-guided online course, you will explore your most impactful life stories and discover the archetypes that are currently active as the heroes or villains of your personal mythology.

Knowing your story gives you a rich understanding of who you are and identifies clear pathways to who you wish to become.

In Soul Journeys you will:

  • Create insightful collages that unveil who the heroes and villains are in your personal stories.

  • Cultivate a habit of creativity and self-expression through intuitive collage.

  • Learn what your creative superpowers are and how they support your vision (or hinder it!)

  • Uncover personal mythologies hidden within your subconscious. What’s lurking in the shadows ready to be revealed?

  • Discover the creative kryptonite that gets in the way of you refining the next chapter of your life.

"I loved Minette's workshop. The journaling prompts she provided were both accessible and thought-provoking, pushing me to explore new depths of self-reflection that I hadn't reached on my own. The entire journey felt wholesome, leaving me with a renewed sense of appreciation for my personal growth." - Marleen K. 

If you have been feeling overwhelmed by life’s many difficult transitions in midlife and beyond, you might feel uncertain about where to go next on your healing journey. You may be dealing with the fallout from a significant life event, and it's hard to know where to begin when everything feels so raw and confusing. Or you might be seeking a deeper meaning in the events of your life.

  • Gain confidence in your ability to shape your own life. 

  • Know exactly what areas of your life need your focus and attention.

  • Understand who the heroes and the villains are in your personal mythology.

  • Rediscover passions and interests that were put on hold for years (or even decades).

"I’ve discovered that not only does creative work produce end results, it’s the process itself that inspires productivity in other areas. Sitting quietly and putting images or colors on a page not only relaxes me, it opens my mind to ideas and concepts in other areas of my work. Whether you think you’re creative or not right now, this workshop will bring you peace and confidence that you are creative!" - Sherry Hess

"I don’t consider myself to be an artist in the truest sense of the word, but Minette helped me to understand that to be creative is our birthright. I was happily surprised at the pleasure I felt in taking the time to nurture that creativity. Minette’s teaching and playful assignments invited me to get curious and become intentional around bringing my creative gifts to the forefront and to understand how these play a role in the success of my business. I would recommend this course to anyone, get in touch with your creative side, it's fun!- Tracy Johannson

I remember when I first discovered intuitive collage over a decade ago, it was as if a whole new world opened up for me that I didn’t know existed. Even though I had done a lot of journaling and dabbled in various arts and crafts, this felt different. It showed me how to make art this is meaningful and beautiful. It helped me to see and experience new aspects of myself that had been lost or buried. And perhaps most importantly, intuitive collage has been a powerful part of my healing journey over the past 12 years and something I return to over and over again. 

I want you to experience the magic of intuitive collage for yourself! You will always discover something about yourself you didn’t know. 

Your next step is to enroll in the Soul Journey class and begin your intuitive collage adventure today.

Meet your guide on the Soul Journey: Dr. Minette Riordan

I was that girl who always had her head buried in a book, everything from fantasy fiction and the odd Harlequin romance to philosophy and self-discovery. I remember one high school teacher looking at me oddly when I chose to write an essay about the existentialists... and my fellow classmates agreed my love of William Faulkner and Edgar Allan Poe was just one more weird thing about me. 

As I grow older, I spend more time going inward rather than looking for answers in a book. Although I am still a voracious reader, I love exploring the stories and memories of my past for clues that are sometimes elusive and sometimes obvious.

As someone personally experiencing all the ups and downs of midlife, I find that exploring clues of my past can offer insights and clues to my current sense of identity and purpose.My favorite way to explore my own stories is through art and writing.

To give you a little bit of the backstory, I have a Ph.D. from Stanford University. My childhood love of story turned into a doctorate in Spanish specializing in Latin American literature.

I have been teaching and facilitating creative processes for close to 30 years. I have taught at the high school, university and community college levels covering topics as diverse as feminist literature, world religions and time management for creatives.

I am a serial entrepreneur who loves building businesses and this is my third and favorite business, although I loved them all. Along the way I have gathered a long list of certifications and trainings in SoulCollage®, Zentangle®, JourneyCircles™ and am a Certified Depth Coach through the Journey Path Institute.

I am happiest when I am painting, walking in nature or facilitating creative experiences like the one I've creative just for you in Soul Journey. Please come join me and together let's unveil your personal mythology.
