SoulCollage(R) and Journaling

Monarch Butterflies on Rudbeckia

Summer is still in full swing, but already I'm looking ahead to fall and what classes and retreats I want to offer. My newest discovery and training is as a SoulCollage(R) facilitator, so I'm going to combine it with the journal writing class. I have always used collage in different forms in classes I lead - we do found poem collages, life journey collages, soul as landscape collages - it's a fun way to touch the creative, artistic side in an easy, non-threatening mode that anybody can do.

Here's what I am offering in two weekly classes - one in the evening and one in the afternoon. 

Journal writing is a sacred way to slow down and notice your life, cultivate serenity and eliminate the obstacles to living the life you want. Every class we will play with words and images, for the joy of self-expression. Through journal writing we gain greater self-knowledge, find out how to connect with inner guidance and intuition, and how to hear and trust our own truth. Sharing with others is always optional, but a beautiful chance for learning and growth. The comments are often, I feel less alone. I am not the only one….

SoulCollage(r) : is a tangible way to know yourself in your diversity and depth, and also to show yourself to others. ... 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!  ~ Seena B. Frost, founder.   I will provide the images, glue and card backings. We will create and share cards together.

What I'd like to gently guide you towards doing: take time for you and refill your creative well through centering  and creative exercises; feel more worthy and deserving (put yourself on the list); learn to nurture the voice of the Inner Coach, let go of the Inner Critic; develop and trust your Inner Guidance. Explore and discover the meaning of the Feminine energies and life cycle.

ps these are offered in the Montreal area, and perhaps one day, on-line
