October 21-23, Healing through the SoulCollage® Process with Peg Lentz

posted in: Events
“A SoulCollage® deck is the story of you. 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 is a holy 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 yourself and your soul—whether it consists of three cards or a hundred.” – Seena Frost, Creator of SoulCollage®

SoulCollage® is an expressive art process. Participants use collage to create, over time, a personal deck of unique, soul-tending cards — each representing an energy of one’s ongoing life story.  This year’s workshop with Peg will focus on “Healing through the SoulCollage® Process.”

Peg is a Certified Spiritual Director and a Certified SoulCollage® Facilitator.

SoulCollage® is a process of creating, over time, a personal desk of unique collaged cards from found and personal images for the primary purpose of self-exploration, self-acceptance, and soul-tending. SoulCollage® is a fun, engaging, deep and illuminating process that is all at once a form of creative play, self-care, and personal reflection.

Absolutely no art experience is necessary. There is no wrong or right way. Anyone able to manage scissors and glue can create beautiful cards and enjoy sharing them with others!

November 9th: SoulCollage® in the Forest

posted in: Events
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 art form, 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, 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 $20, 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
