SoulCollage® Cards by Annette Laugel

 “The activities encouraged a gentle sharing of experience that made our gathering feel like a little community. The movement exercises were a great alternative way to bring attention to experience. My drawings were surprising and revealing for me – though at first I thought nothing would happen when I put pencil to paper.”   

- Vicky P.      Response to Mindfulness class

 SoulCollage® is an intuitive approach of collage-making used for exploring one’s inner world and for encouraging self reflection and awareness. The SoulCollage® approach was created by the late psychotherapist, Seena B. Frost, who inspired a worldwide movement of personal growth within creative communities with this collage medium. The SoulCollage® process combines quiet time and creativity with the gentle sharing of insights about collages within the safe circle of the group. No previous experience is necessary. Materials and light refreshments provided. Feel free to bring your lunch as well as collected images that you might want to use.

 

The theme of this class series is the Five Elements Theory found in Eastern medicine and philosophy. The qualities and attributes of each element are explained and we explore how they show up in nature. We are all influenced by all five elemental energies but we will look at how we tend to emphasize certain elements over others in living our lives. Each class will focus on the essential qualities of the element associated with each season as follows.

 

Sept. 15, 2019     The Earth Element is the harvest time of Late Summer

Nov. 17, 2019      The Metal Element is the shortened light of Autumn

Jan. 19, 2020      The Water Element is the flow of Winter

March 15, 2020  The Wood Element is the bursting forth of Spring

May 17, 2020      The Fire Element is the growing warmth and light of Summer

Listening to classical music with an open intention to "Let the music take you..." can result in a new way of relating to music, or a reminder of how you heard music when you were very young, --before the piano lessons, before pop tunes blared every where--, and in unguarded moments when the pure beauty of harmonious sound reached your deepest feelings. In these morning meetings, we will listen, respond, and share.
