  • SoulCollage®

    Create small collages that reveal what your soul wants you to know

     

    SoulCollage® is a powerful and creative process that uses collage art and intuitive writing as transformational tools for self-discovery, personal development and spiritual growth.

     

    During a SoulCollage® workshop you use your intuition to create small collage cards using magazine images, scissors and glue. You then learn how to "read" your cards to discover what personal and hidden meanings your SoulCollage® cards reveal to you.

     

    Workshops can be tailored to your specific audience and needs. No experience is needed.

  • Vision Boards

    Visualize and manifest the life of your dreams

    Vision Boards are powerful art collages that use words and images to represent your wants and needs. The images can be very specific, like a picture of a house you would love to own, or they can evoke an emotion or feeling, like a picture of a sunset that makes you feel deeply peaceful.

    Vision Boards help you to:

  • Testimonials

    Just completed the last class of the SoulCollage Workshop and it has been a wonderful experience... a real eye-opener. I really appreciated Joyce's gentle guidance into this intuitive way of accessing one's inner landscape, and providing a window into my true deep-seated expression vis-a-vis so many important areas of my life. As I look over my six soul collage boards, particular themes emerged, and I can see where I have come from, where I am now, and where I would like to go... so thank you Joyce for this valuable tool! – E.C.

    ..........

    Joyce's SoulCollage workshop was an amazing experience, enriching, enlightening and even fun! Under Joyce's gentle guidance, I felt comfortable creating collages that gave me surprising and helpful insights. For someone who thought she had no "artistic" ability, I'm thrilled with my collages. I can't wait until her next series begins – I'm hooked! – Ellen

    As I came back home today – I looked at my card. It reminded me of a trip in the Himalayas few years ago – a pilgrimage to Mount-Kailash, Tibet. I remember the exhilaration and joy I felt on top of that mountain – air was so rarified (+6,000 meters in altitude) and how BREATH had been my refuge and still is … so I renamed my card PRANA … and as the card suggests I will put more emphasis on breathwork (called pranayamas) in my own practice and teaching. I'm always amazed to see what guidance SoulCollage has to reveal to us. – Merci, Louise

    It is Sunday morning a day of quiet and rest. I awake and I am happy, my heart smiles as I prepare for my SoulCollage session with Joyce and the others who will have chosen to come. Sunday morning seems the perfect day to do SoulCollage because everything comes together to facilitate this time of reflection, even the city is enveloped in a Sabbath hush.

     

    When I first heard the words “soul collage” I wondered what this could mean. “Soul” a word rarely used except when referring to our deepest self, the place where God dwells within us. After having participated in several sessions I now know what it means for me. SoulCollage is my gift to myself, a time to step back, to be silent, to reach deep within myself so I can hear what God is trying to say to me. I get so caught up in the daily fragmentation of life that I often lose sight of the bigger picture. When this happens I slowly but surely meander away from my true core. SoulCollage provides me with the tools I need to bring myself back to my center, where I can once again connect with the wholeness of my person, evaluate the state of my relationships and literally “touch” the stardust of my life.

     

    If someone were to ask me what word immediately comes to mind when you hear the words soul collage, I would have to say gentleness.Everything about the session is marked by gentleness, the surroundings, the participants, the process, our facilitator. A wonderful added dimension is what happens within the group at every session. Although each one quietly works alone on her collage there is a special bonding that occurs and a unique form of friendship is created. I can’t put into words ... it has to be experienced!!! – Pat

    ..........

    Last year I had the privilege of participating in one of Joyce’s Soul Collage workshops. This was the first time that I have done anything of this nature. I have never considered myself to be a very artistic person and don’t spend any of my time in creative pursuits. The workshop allowed me to take a little time to do something creative without any pressure concerning the final product. In fact it is quite the opposite: the process of making the Soul Collage is what’s important and the finished collage is the incidental culmination of that process. I am a dedicated Yoga practitioner and the larger part of my Yoga practice has to so with self-reflection. What I found most interesting with my Soul Collage experience is finding a similar opportunity to learn about myself. After examining my completed collage it became clear that my choices about what to cut-out and what to include in my collage speaks volumes about myself. If we extend this logic, we can see that in life all our choices say something about ourselves and contribute to the “collage” that we live. – Sacha
