I first experienced Soul Collage® when I was 22 years old. I had graduated college and was working in a job I thought I wanted. Still, I felt unsure and was questioning the path I was on. That's when I realized that I wasn't really on a "path" at all--I was totally lost!
After leaving that job, I started interning at a great organization in Pasadena called the Institute for Girls’ Development. While there, I began attending and assisting in SoulCollage® workshops. I was so deeply moved by the experience of Soul Collage® and discovered very quickly that collage is much more than an art activity. I was--and continue to be--amazed at the process of self-discovery it opens up.
As I continued to work with Soul Collage®, I became very quickly aware that my confidence was growing and that I was finding my footing and strength. I was answering questions like “Where was I going?” and “Am I on the right path?” I was inspired to become a Soul Collage® facilitator, training with Seena Frost, the creator of SoulCollage®.
I am so happy and honored to be able to share Soul Collage® as both a workshop and a part of my therapy practice. I believe it builds confidence in yourself and allows you to begin to think more creatively in your approach to daily life. I definitely found that to be true for for me.
When people ask me what Soul Collage® is, I tell them it is a creative art process where NO ART EXPERIENCE IS REQUIRED, that you are never going to be judged by what you make and that, as you'll very quickly come to understand, you are the expert. It's really easy-- just bring yourself and all the materials are provided. Using magazine images and scissors, you'll layer images onto cards that are slightly bigger than the typical smart phone. Through a guided process, you'll use the cards and follow prompts that will help in answering your questions. Questions can be specific as “How do I make the next move in my career?” or less so, like “Did I make the right choice?” or even more general, as in “What am I doing next?” Just bring your life experience and your desire to discover answers to your questions. I know, it's different, but once you get started, I'm confident you’ll understand what I mean.
