SoulCollage® Workshop for Self Discovery

This is an introductory workshop for people who want to begin to make SoulCollage® cards and learn ways to use the collage cards for their own self-discovery. These introductory workshops are small and leisurely with lots of time for making cards, doing readings and learning about the process, anyone who is attracted to images and to the fun of learning about her or himself. It is totally unnecessary to have artistic experience. With SoulsCollage®, everyone is an artist.

SoulCollage® is a process created by Seena Frost in which you contact your intuition and create an incredible deck of cards which have deep personal meaning and which will help you with life’s questions.

Following the simple SoulCollage® directions, your hands move fragments of cut-out magazine pictures around, fitting them together in a surprising new way and gluing them down on a card. Cards containing the images you select-or the images that you select-come straight through your Soul, bypassing the mind. This is a multi-leveled, creative process which anyone can do. All you need is a good pair of scissors, pre-cut mat board cards, images you can cut out from magazines, greeting cards, FORMAT personal photos, postcards, catalogues and calendars. It is wonderful to have other people with whom to share the process. The cards are fun to take to friend’s homes for readings, to work with in therapy or support groups, or to keep on your coffee table. Materials will be provided, feel free to bring your own special scissors and images that may have cut out. Dress in layers and bring lunch, hat and your creative Soul.
