"The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek." –– Joseph Campbell
A heartfelt thanks goes to all the wonderful photographers and artists whose images have helped me to recreate and discover my own inner world.
SoulCollage is the brainchild of the late artist and psychologist Seena B. Frost, who developed this incredible practice as a way for the artistic and therapeutic layman to participate hands-on in his/her own self-discovery, and to create beautiful works of art in the process.
SoulCollage is, quite simply, the making of collage art. Beyond that basic modality, however, is a creative and therapeutic process that taps into the subconscious with its vivid mood and collision of imagery, and cultivates the powers of the intuitive. Through the seemingly unrelated images of a collage work, much can be revealed about the deepest parts of who we authentically are. You need not be an artist of any experience. You need only be hungry for an extraordinary journey of self-excavation and growth.
I became a student of SoulCollage through one of its facilitators in Los Angeles, folk artist MARGO GRAVELLE. For many years now I have met with an extraordinary group of people to make collages toward the purpose of the ongoing creation of a "deck" that might be likened to a Tarot deck, the result of which reflects and represents the varied and many aspects of each person's emotional and psychological character. The cards honor all experiences.
My own experience with SoulCollage has been a life-changing one for me. I have sought many healing modalities, including cognitive therapy and grief counseling, and have never felt as clear about who I am (the good, the bad, the ugly) through any means more potent than through this extraordinary and non-judgmental practice.
To find out more about it, please visit Seena's site: SOUL COLLAGE. (SoulCollage® is a registered trademark of SoulCollage, Inc.) It may even help you to find a class in your area, which I recommend for anyone on a self-seeking path for healing.
If you haven't already, please also enjoy the video above of some of my own cards. The montage also features improvised music by The Global Folk, and is peppered with quotes from some of my favorite godlings.
