I am a SoulCollage® Facilitator offering workshops in this dynamic, fun and inspiring technique for self-discovery and integration. Using found images, scissors and glue, we each create a vibrant deck of our own personal SoulCollage® cards. These cards become visual representations of our inner lives, our communities, and the larger world. Developed by social worker, Seena Frost, this is an easy and intuitive process that all can enjoy and benefit from.

Creative Resilience Journaling Group (This group is not currently being offered. If you are interested, please get in touch.) As we collectively navigate a complex time in human history, we are called to care for ourselves in diverse and dynamic ways. Journaling is an ages old tool for getting through difficulty- for those who like to write. But what about folks who get stuck putting pen to paper in a traditional way? Creative journaling is about opening the boundaries of journaling to include prose, poetry, painting, collage, and any other creative outlet that fits into a notebook. This group will provide a jump start towards creating your own.
For those drawn to artistic expression, the creative process can be incredibly restorative to the brain and body. The nervous system calms as the body's natural defense system, so necessary for our busy and complex daily lives, releases into a safe and connected space. At the same time the right hemisphere of the brain is nurtured allowing our controlling, logical, linear left hemisphere to take a well deserved break from running the show. The end result is an experience of restoration and illumination that emerges as we engage the senses through a tactile experience of creativity. These smalls groups provide the opportunity for building connection and community through the creative process.
