SoulCollage® for Writing and Self ExpressionApril 6, 2014 to May 18, 2014 — 01:00 PM to 04:00 PM Instructor: Carol Coogan
Would you like to explore some new methods for keeping a journal and writing? Are you attracted to images? Would you like to access your own inner wisdom? Are you interested in using creative expression for personal development? If you say “Yes!” to any of these questions, you will probably enjoy and benefit from this six week class. SoulCollage® is an insightful tool that works directly with the language of symbols, images and archetypes to help you explore, investigate, uncover and reflect upon the many aspects of yourself that are uniquely YOU. The process involves choosing images that you are drawn to, or which resonate with you, then cutting, tearing and gluing them together to create collaged cards. Each card focuses on one aspect of yourself that you may want to acknowledge, honor, or investigate further. We will spend time making cards at every session and then, through journaling, writing prompts and other interactive exercises, learn ways to interpret and work with finished cards through writing for personal insight and creative expression. Anyone can enjoy this process. The materials fee covers initial card making. Additional materials available for sale. Please bring a journal for writing exercises.
