We all are multi-facetted beings wearing many hats. Oftentimes, one or two of these hats seem to demand so much of us that we forget about other aspects of who we are. What happened with that adventurous part? How about your wild joy? And that part of you that is overwhelmed or scared? Do they have room to express it so that it does not burst out and talk you out of things that might nurture you? [read more] [read testimonials]

More Detail :: SoulCollage

Business and parenting are two typical examples of roles that hold strong demands on us. We want to give our best, with the result that for stretches of our lives we shut out many other aspects of who we are. It can be hard to explore your inner wild woman for example when you have a job and kids and little time to breath.

SoulCollage® is an opportunity to give voice to all of who we are, including those aspects that have suffered from neglect. In SoulCollage® we make cards for personality aspects and archetypal energies that want to be heard and expressed. No worries, Eva will guide you so that the card will almost create itself—no artistic skills are needed. And for those who are artistic but have no arena for their inner artist to roam, this is a fantastic opportunity to come and express yourself in a safe environment and without the pressure of competition. The SoulCollage® process is about honoring and expressing our inner selves, and all of us have unique selves to be expressed. An intrinsic part of SoulCollage® is sharing, giving voice to the card that you created. The safe environment of the group is an ideal setting for this.

Come to an intro workshop to learn more about SoulCollage® AND to make your first cards. Experience for yourself what others rave about [read testimonials]. Chances are that you will love it too. Then, join Eva monthly to tune into yourself and to develop your SoulCollage® deck. Your soul needs a little time and attention — SoulCollage® is an easy way to give it what it needs. Heighten your awareness of your inner world and ultimately boosts your happiness by moving toward inner peace. Come and give it a try.

About the SoulCollage® deck

SoulCollage® is a system and a path.
After practicing SoulCollage® for a while you will be able to organize your cards according to SoulCollage® suits :

- committee
- community
- council
- energy companions (chakra cards)
- transpersonal cards.

Over time, you will be able to use your deck for divination. It is a bit as if you had a personal tarot deck!

SoulCollage® is a powerful and fun psycho-spiritual creative practice that allows us to gradually grow by integrating continuously more aspects of who we are. This dynamic practice helps process our complexities, ambiguities and contradictions, ultimately leading to a sense of clarity, wholeness and inner peace.

Creating Your SoulCollage® Deck

Having your own SoulCollage® deck is like having a deck of customized tarot cards. Each card has its own specific meaning and can help you understand yourself better. Plus, the process of making cards is a fun way of letting your creative juices flow while exploring aspects of yourself, a card at a time.

The Saturday morning group and the SoulCollage immersion Sundays will help you explore yourself while growing your SoulCollage® deck. Each meeting begins with a centering guided visualization. Then we will create SoulCollage® cards and share what they reveal to us.

If you have not done a SoulCollage® intro workshop yet, no worries: come and get started. You can take the intro workshop at the next opportunity or when you're ready. Come and expand your SoulCollage® deck in this safe, nurturing, creative environment. No artistic background necessary.
