Creating Sacred Space – Tending to your Soul – Wednesday, September 22, 2021 6p – 8:30p EDT.

Use https://www.thetimezoneconverter.com to determine your local time for this workshop

This is a small, intimate and interactive workshop for those who have already taken an Introduction or Beginner SoulCollage® workshop and understand basic SoulCollage® concepts. It is an opportunity to create sacred space for soul tending and self-care.

By participating in this workshop, you will help create a safe, supportive and sacred community in virtual space for others and yourself which I hope encourages and feeds your longing for community connection. By participating, you are setting aside a specific time and space for tending to your soul while companioning others in the virtual world.

You will be invited to share your creations and personal insights with others as you feel comfortable. You will be invited to create cards, journal with them using the I Am One Who exercise, perhaps write poetry, a Pantoum, or other creative processes and share in small group(s). 

Before the workshop, you will need to gather the materials to create cards:

  • Scissors
  • A glue stick
  • 5×8 index cards, mat boards, or cut to size manila folders
  • Images from magazines, calendars, greeting cards, online sites of copyright free images. Please remember to gather background images! 
  • A journal and something to write with.

If you are new to SoulCollage or need a refresher on the basic concepts and process, this is the workshop for you.

SoulCollage is a creative, intuitive and inspiring process using images for discovering your deeper self and the Source. Whether you call The Source, God, Divine, Yahweh, Mystery, Higher Power, Brahma or some other name, using images often allows you to visualize and name without words. The SoulCollage process helps you access the sacred within.

Prior to the workshop, please gather images from magazines, calendars, old cards, discarded library books or internet sites like Unsplash that “grab” you. Don’t forget to look for larger background images!

FEE: the suggested fee for this 3 hour workshop is $40. Make payment to PayPal (below) or Venmo @christywesselman . Once registered you will receive an email with the Zoom link and password, a list of “must have” supplies, and a list of optional supplies and handouts. Please register at least TWO DAYS in advance in order to timely receive the handouts and Zoom link information.

MINIMUM PARTICIPANTS: A minimum of 4 participants is required for the workshop to be held. Please register early to ensure you have a spot in the workshop and to ensure you timely receive the information.

REFUND POLICY: I am unable to refund registrations which are cancelled less than 72 hours prior to the workshop however, I will be happy to apply the fee to another workshop.
