The Journey to Self through SoulCollage®

The Ego, Jung tells us, is that part of the pyche that we think of as 'I'. Our conscious intelligence. Our everyday brain that thinks, plans and runs the show of our day-to-day life. The Self, as Jung defined it, is a greater entity, which includes the Ego but also incorporates the Personal and Collective Unconscious. Dreams and intuitions come from the Self. The archetypes of the unconscious dwell there. It is, Jung believed, the sphere of the Soul ~~Steven Pressfield. 'The War of Art'

"I would love to live like a river flows,
 carried by the surprise
 of its own unfolding".

SoulCollage® Studio session

Our first SoulCollage® studio session is happening!

These sessions are for people who are already making SoulCollage® cards, not for people new to the process.

Here are the details:

Monday 4th July, 2011 from 6.30pm to 9pm
Downstairs at the Brisbane Quaker Meeting House, 10 Hampson St, Kelvin Grove (Brisbane). Go down the path beside the house and then continue on down the stairs.
$10 each 
Tea, coffee and nibbles included.
(NB: Participants from my 'Introduction to SoulCollage®' workshop on 18th June are eligible to come to this session for free.)
What to bring: Please bring any SoulCollage® cards that you've made.  I will supply magazines but feel free to contribute a couple of your own, if you wish.  I will have blank cards for sale ($9 for 10 cards or $1 each), as well as Seena Frost's latest book ($33).

**PLEASE BOOK:  Please book with me by phone or email. Thanks

These regular monthly evenings are for meeting other SoulCollagers, for card-making and for sharing our cards and SoulCollage® experiences among friends.  Seena Frost, the creator of SoulCollage®  believes that community is a very important component of SoulCollage®. During these evenings I'll spend a little time focusing on some aspect of SoulCollage® and the rest of the time will be for card-making.

For this first studio session, I'll be going over doing readings with your SoulCollage® cards.  By 'readings', I mean posing a question for guidance in some area of your life and then drawing a card, or cards, from your deck and through them, accessing your inner wisdom for guidance on the issue.  Don't worry if you only have one or a few cards, you will still be able to do this exercise by using my deck.

Note that if you don't want to share any of your insights from your cards with another person or the group, that is perfectly OK.  Please still come along and enjoy making some cards.

If you have any questions about this session, or anything at all to do with SoulCollage®,  please contact me.

Finally, here's a lovely piece that I came across from Christian mystic, St. John of the Cross which, I feel, nicely ties in with what we're doing with SoulCollage®:

She caught me off guard when my soul said to me,
“Have we met?”

So surprised I was to hear her speak like that,
I chuckled.

She began to sing a tale: “There was once a hardworking man
who used to worry so much because he could
not feed and clothe his children and
wife the way he wanted.

There was a beautiful little chapel in the village
where the man lived and one day while
he was praying, an angel

The angel said, ‘Follow me.’ And he did, out into an ancient forest.

‘Now dig here,’ the angel said. And the man felt strength in
his limbs he had not known since youth and with just
his bare hands he dug deep and found a
lost treasure, and his relationship
with the world changed.”

Finding our soul’s beauty does that – gives us
tremendous freedom
from worry.

“Dig here,” the angel said–
“in your soul,
in your

~St. John of the Cross

So looking forward to seeing you on 4th!
