"Our imagination can probe the heights of Spirit and the depths of Soul, traveling often on the wings of vivid images.” Seena Frost, pyschotherapist, creator of SoulCollage®
SoulCollage® is a creative process using images rather than words to create a very unique and personal deck of 5 x 8 cards. Through your imagination, creativity and intuition you create small collages, works of art, that help you tap into your inner wisdom and personal knowledge.
Carl Rogers, a noted psychologist, believed that the most noteworthy of learning is self-discovered. SoulCollage® is a format that allows for this self-discovery because you are the creator. You guide yourself towards images, found or personal, that you are drawn to or are drawn to you (like the Sandtray/Sandplay process).The images then guide you towards insights based on life experience and introspection.
Like Sandtray/Sandplay, ideas, thoughts and feelings are revealed to you at your own time, your own pace and in your own language. You have the power to gain insight based on the images you are drawn to, even if you don’t know why you are drawn to them!
Using SoulCollage® in a session means that you will be creating a card during our time together. There will be images for you to choose from, or you may bring in your own, and we will explore what came up for you after you have finished making the card. Based on what we are working on in sessions we may focus on one particular aspect of You and make a card to represent this, be it a challenging part within you, like fear, or a strong part of you, like confidence or joy. Having a variety of cards helps to reclaim and integrate all of who you are.
You do not need any art experience or skills to create inspiring and provocative cards. With attentive nurturing and supportive witnessing, I will guide you in the making of a card and together we can explore and consult with wonder the mystery of the card. I will teach you how to continue making cards on your own and when appropriate we can work with them intuitively during sessions.
SoulCollage® cards are unique to you. They honor you, bring clarity to different parts of yourself and promote healing and self-connection. Your cards may nurture and inspire. I look forward to providing a safe space for you to explore your intuitive creativity and begin making your personal SoulCollage® deck.
