By using your imagination in creating a collage from cut-out images, you become an artist and explorer of your soul. The images choose you and you begin your journey into your own personal inner world, a world wanting and needing to be heard. These cards answer the eternal question, "who am I?" The class creates an atmosphere of support, self-acceptance, and personal empowerment in a fun and creative way. Although this is not art therapy, it is therapeutic. SoulCollage is rooted in theology, spirituality, and psychology and was created by Seena Frost, M. Div., M.A.
