Thank you to all the wonderful photographers and artists whose images inspired us to recreate and discover our inner and outer worlds.
SoulCollage® & HeartCollage™ Groups
I am a certified SoulCollage® facilitator. I’m starting a new SoulCollage® group.
Use your creativity to grow, explore and play.
Let the images of your soul and heart emerge.
Experience the deepening of connection to others.
SoulCollage® is an intuitive and imaginative way of playing in the realm of the Soul. We sort through, rip and cut, shuffle and paste a wide (and wild) variety of images from magazines, books, etc. We respond to images as they call to us. We slowly build our own deck of soul cards, meeting and greeting the various manifestations of our unconscious and beginning to relate with different players in our inner theatre, some of whom are guides and allies, others of whom are challengers, and still others of whom have come to us for healing. It is good to meet the Many who make up the One we usually think we are. So much for the static, in-control self!
The actual process of SoulCollage is pretty simple. We look through magazines and books and respond to images, ripping out and cutting up images, playing with images, and ultimately gluing images on pieces of cardboard. How’s that for fun and simple?! We bypass the left brain (God/dess willing) and bask in intuitive sensibility and play. We make cards that mysteriously bring to life aspects of who we are. We meet our Selves at the level of Soul. Just let yourself respond to the images. Play with them! Move them around as long as you need until you hear or feel that “kerchunk” inside that says it is just so; time to glue. —Shelly Graham, Ph.D. (Psychologist and SoulCollage® facilitator)
Groups and workshops are a valuable part of any healing path. A group allows support and connections to develop among its members. As the members of a group hold space for each individual and his or her experiences, they come to know parts of themselves that are similar and ways that they are different. Groups help us to grow in the context of relating, as well as in the areas focused on by the group.
One way to work with the cards is to Pull a card, then Say words that describe what you are feeling as you look at aspects of the card.
Another is to do readings. State your question and pick 3 cards. I am the one who… use adjectives and descriptive and feeling words. Give the element a voice and point of view. Speak in the first person as the card. (use a scribe if wanted and read back).
Then speak to the question. What can you tell me about this issue?
Group members can ask questions or share their thoughts.
Look for themes and how they relate to your life or current challenges.
