Frequently Asked Questions
Is SoulCollage® for Me?
The Lonely Child, the Juggler/Balancing Act, the Writer, the Adventurer, the Artist, the Compassionate One, the Spiritual Seeker, the Healer, the Inner Critic, the Over-Committer… Do any of these Inner Parts sound like they could be you?
With the SoulCollage® process, all of your inner parts are seen and heard! Through the steps of creating and consulting the cards, your understanding of your self deepens and evolves. We can identify parts of ourselves and, once identified, see their roles in our lives transformed.
You don’t need any prior knowledge or artistic skills to do SoulCollage®—just an interest in discovery and a willingness to explore your self. All you need to be able to do is cut out images and paste them on matte board (materials are provided at all workshops). There is no “bad” or “wrong” way to create a SoulCollage® card—they are all as different and unique as ourselves!
What Can I Expect from a Workshop?
You will find yourself surrounded by like-minded participants eager to create and explore. Work and share at your own pace, in a non-competitive atmosphere with the guidance of a seasoned professional. You will feel supported in a rich community that develops quickly.
