What is SoulCollage®?
An Amazing Tool for Your Well- Being
SoulCollage® is an intuitive collage process which culminates in the creation of a deck of Soul cards revealing your personal story of psyche (mind) and soul. It's a way to nourish your soul and tend to your mind at the same time. SoulCollage® uses the transformative power of your imagination. Whether it resides on the surface or at deeper levels within you, you do have imagination and SoulCollage® encourages your imagination to run free! There is no "right" or "wrong" way to create Soul cards, there is only your way.
Using your intuition and imagination, you'll create a personal deck of cards which are visible images of your inner-self. Unlike traditional collage, Soul cards become more than just creative images. Your cards can be an amazing tool to increase your well-being in various ways. By accessing the inner parts of yourself and bringing them into consciousness through the SoulCollage® process, you can achieve increased self-awareness, self-acceptance, and self-integration. As a result, you may find that you feel more harmonious, balanced, and peaceful.
Creating Your Soul Card Deck
Similar to a deck of playing cards, except with a 5" x 8" format, a SoulCollage® deck consists of four suits. Each suit has a particular focus and function. You'll have complete freedom in building your deck. You can chose to focus on one, two, three, or all four suits. In the Committee Suit, you'll identify various aspects of your personality, name them, and image them. Learning to understand and accept all your personality parts without judgement can help you keep the more troublesome ones in check (like your Inner Critic) and grow the presence of the more helpful ones (like the Wise One). The Community Suit gives you an opportunity to honor the vital connections you have with other people. It will remind you that you are not alone and that help and support are available to you. Animal images are emphasized in the Companion Suit. The animals you chose can depict energies that are shared with humans and help to access a sense of spirituality. Lastly, the Council Suit uses images of universal archetypes as metaphors for your inner world. Archetypes have existed throughout time and all cultures. They can be very powerful in reminding you of your connection to the larger story of humankind.
