spiritual companion; Contemplative Outreach Int’l commissioned presenter; Phillips
Theological Seminary graduate
and Benedictine Oblate.

Join us for SoulCollage® in the Forest. We will meet from 3:30 to 8:00pm. No experience is necessary for this creative soul adventure!
In this expressive workshop, participants use collage to create unique soul-tending cards, each representing an energy of one’s ongoing life story. This is a fun, engaging, and deeply illuminating process and full of personal reflections. This creative form of self-care doesn’t end in this workshop, either! You can continue to grow your deck over time as your life story continues.
This time in the Forest will allow you an opportunity to meet others using SoulCollage cards as a way to go deeper within . We will select images, create cards and see “what is up” for our exploration into our psyche.
Bring your journal, images, glue stick, your SoulCollage deck (if you have one) and be ready to enter new ways of expressing yourself.
Absolutely no art experience is necessary. Anyone able to manage scissors and glue can create beautiful cards and enjoy sharing them with others!
For a fee of $15, you will have time and space to create your SoulCollage cards, as well as supper and the chance to participate in a silent meditation in serene surroundings. Give yourself the gift of time to discover your wisdom and change your world with SoulCollage® in the Forest of Peace.
For more information on the process, and an introductory video by Seena Frost, the creator of SoulCollage®, visit www.soulcollage.com
