Class Title Deep Discovery: An Introduction to SoulCollage®
Intuitive Guide, Poet, and SoulCollage® Facilitator & Trainer
We each have a living Universe inside of us! It's there from the moment we are born. It’s unique, rich, and filled with messages, desires, and directions on how to live our best lives. When we access these messages we excavate pieces of ourselves that may be broken or that may have been hidden for years. When we allow our adventurous selves to journey to our depths, we can connect to our innermost places and breathe new life into them. This is powerful, soul nourishing work, and SoulCollage® is a tool that can help us access this level of depth.
During this five hour introduction, I intentionally guide you through unraveling your personal story while exploring the stories of your community and your ancestors. By sharing the SoulCollage® process with you we awaken a powerful part of you. You connect to the fire that is already burning inside you (no matter how low it may be right now) and you gain clarity about your purpose and passion. At the end of our time together, you will take home several completed cards and know how to use the cards for daily readings, journaling, and periodic conversations with the deepest parts of yourself. Do you crave deeper conversations with yourself and others? Come spend the day with yourself and your spirit sisters in a safe, inspiring, and sacred space where we can intuitively create our cards using images that will help us have deeper self-understanding. We will gather as kindred spirits, build community, and establish powerful connections.
This is an introductory workshop designed for those who are new to SoulCollage®. It will give you a taste of what can happen when you come to truly know yourself, share your truth, and find deep, lasting and direct connection to your inner wisdom. Once you activate this part of yourself, the transformation that can happen is beyond measure.
Experience Level – This is a deep and immersive introduction to the methodology and process of SoulCollage®. All levels are welcome.
What is SoulCollage®?
It’s a transformational tool that requires no artistic skills. The concept was created by Seena B. Frost, M. Div., M.A. She understood that by using intuition and imagination we could create a set of cards to reflect the different aspects of ourselves and become more familiar with what our soul most wants, and more importantly, what it most needs. SoulCollage® is a practice of becoming whole. It allows us to witness our own fullness, learn the power of connecting to our personal truths, and experience the people and places that have shaped who we are and who we are becoming. We intuitively make SoulCollage® Cards using simple materials -- images, scissors, glue, and cards. Anyone can do it. Even those who say they are not creative or artistic.
You will begin creating your own deck of SoulCollage® cards and learn the practice of reading them through a self-exploration process led by me, a trained and compassionate facilitator. SoulCollage® cards are often filled with meaningful insights and guidance for your life's journey.
The supply list is below and will help you gather what you need to have a full and powerful experience. Come learn how to make your own SoulCollage® cards! Enjoy an afternoon reconnecting to your intuitive wisdom, gaining new insights and strength, and listening in to what is most meaningful to you right now. SoulCollage® is both contemplative and fun! No artistic ability needed. A MESSAGE FROM THE CREATOR OF SoulCollage®
