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.
This workshop will be held on Zoom in a safe, password protected room. Prior to the workshop, I invite you to gather images from magazines, calendars, old cards, discarded library books or internet sites like Unsplash and others. Don’t forget to look for larger background images!

Creating Sacred Space – Tending to your Soul – Wednesday, January 20, 2021, 6 PM to 9 PM EST. 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 during the winter days of long shadows and less light.
SoulCollage is a creative, intuitive, and inspiring process using images for discovering your deeper self and the Source. Whether you call The Source as God, the Divine, Yahweh, Mystery, Higher Power, Brahma, the Unnamable or some other name, images often allow you to express it without words and access the sacred with you. The Sufi poet Rumi writes “you are a ruby in the midst of granite”. Through SoulCollage you carve out the jewels within you!
By participating in this workshop, you will help create a safe and sacred community in virtual space which I hope is supportive and encouraging 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 on the same journey as you feel comfortable. You will be invited to create cards, journal with them using the I Am One Who exercise, perhaps write poetry or other creative processes and share in small group(s).
Before the workshop, you will need to gather the materials to create cards:
- 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.
This workshop will be held on ZOOM in a safe, password protected room. The suggested donation for this 3 hour workshop is $20. Be sure to include your email to receive the Zoom link and handouts. All donations will go to the Sally Wesselman Angel in the Dugout Memorial Fund for the creation of a scholarship for a high school boys baseball player at Badin High School, Hamilton, Ohio.
