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".

 ~ ~John O'Donohue



Work is not always required. 
There is such a thing as sacred idleness. 
~~ George MacDonald

NOTE: My apologies, but owing to family commitments, I am currently overseas and have no SoulCollage® Studio card-making sessions scheduled. 

  Come and join us for a fun day of 
creativity, companionship and 
'sacred idleness'! 

These monthly card-making sessions are for people who are already making cards - either those who've previously attended one of my workshops, or people who have otherwise discovered SoulCollage® and would like to get together with like-minded others in an atmosphere of support and enjoyment. No tuition is provided on how to make cards and dialogue with them.

10am to 3pm, 
or even later if we are enjoying ourselves too much to stop!  
RED HILL, Brisbane. I will give you the address when you book in.


LUNCH to SHARE (if you're staying for lunch). 
(There's an oven & microwave for heating food)
Any cards you've made,
Your card-frame, 
Blank cards etc 
(although I will have blank cards for sale - see below)
Any other materials you prefer to use, such as special glue.
A couple of magazines which you can then swap for some to take home with you (a good way to obtain a variety of magazines).

Coffee, tea and nibbles.
 Scissors, craft knives, cutting mats, glue etc
(NB: I provide Glue Sticks, but if you prefer to use your own glue, please bring it with you.) 
Magazines (see info above about bringing a couple of your own as well.)

NB: People who've attended one of my workshops are eligible to attend their first Studio session for free, and, at that session, to obtain these products at the workshop discount price (limit of one book only at the discount price).

Due to considerations of space and materials, you must book with me if you're coming. Please provide your mobile number when booking in. Thanks. If I have your phone number I will call you for any last-minute changes. Hopefully there will never be any.

At each session, we may start with a particular activity, such as a guided meditation for the Companion suit, or something else, but the rest of the time will be for card-making, dialoguing and sharing our cards. It's a great opportunity to have someone scribe for you, too, if you have no-one at home to do this for you, remembering that when we write we need to access our left brain, thus perhaps getting in the way of our right, intuitive brain when we are dialoguing with our cards. In relation to the dialoguing process, I am reminded of this quote by US SoulCollage® Trainer/Facilitator, Suzie Wolfer, “Making a SoulCollage® card and not dialoguing with it is like cooking a beautiful meal and not eating it!”  

Creativity is inventing, experimenting, growing, taking risks, breaking rules, making mistakes, and having fun.” — Mary Lou Cook

....and we are going to invent, experiment, grow, take risks, break the rules, make mistakes and most importantly,
