Soul Care Through SoulCollage®


This retreat will take you to peaceful place of nurturing the soul while creating a series of cards which will tell the unique story of you. It is a simple yet profound practice that offers a creative outlet and insight into the centre of self.
No artistic experience is required. You will be working with magazine images, scissors and glue to construct your personal cards. This workshop will be of interest to those looking for a creative venture, to caregivers, non-artists, professionals who may wish to incorporate this into their practice and anyone who heals or is seeking to heal. It is a gentle and inexpensive self-care tool that provides a deepening understanding of self. Participants will leave with several cards that they have made, basic knowledge of their use and ideas of how to put this simple yet profound process into practice.

In the words of Seena B. Frost, creator of this powerful art form “It is a tangible way to know yourself in your diversity and depth, and also to show yourself to others. Showing your deck of SoulCollage®® cards to another person can be a profound experience. In like-spirited groups, you can share cards and work with them in many sacred ways. You can consult them intuitively and discover wisdom within yourself which will amaze you. Besides all this, creating them is just plain fun! You will love your deck — a multi-card Mirror of your Self and your Soul — whether it consists of three cards or a hundred.”
