Its a blue sky sun warm day out as I sit and write this..International Women’s Day was a great day,It started with weeks of prep with a friend who facilitates “Soul Collage” Workshops. My role was hostess which was a nice change from facilitator. It supported my choice (previous blog entry) of letting go of facilitating workshops, It was an interesting concept of being a participant fully present sitting comfortably in the passenger seat.
Soul Collage was the creative process that I used to journey through the grief of losing my sister, it was modeled and facilitated by Heather Conn a trained Soul Collage Facilitator residing on the Sunshine Coast. I was first introduced to Soul Collage while living in my “Tin Can” in Robert’s Creek. I feel in love with the very powerful healing creativity using simple materials of magazines,glue stick,scissors and cardboard foundation.
The simplicity and depth truly resonated with me that I wanted others to also share in Soul Collage Exploration. International Women’s Day was a great time to “create a way”. We were a small group of women creators on March 8th.Although our numbers were small the creativity was expansive.
One can’t help but be pulled into the visual walk of focusing on the pics in magazines that grab our attention leaving the stories and words behind as there is no place for them using the “Soul Collage” process. There is no right or wrong ..it just is..If u are presented the opportunity to take a Soul Collage Workshop then by all means please do and Heather Conn is an excellent Facilitator by putting the two together then u have a wonderful creative day.
The follow up after the workshop was a potluck with the participants from the workshop and invited guests.. It was a wonderful day of Solidarity for Women……I AM WOMAN,HEAR ME ROAR!!!!!
I received a wonderful house blessing from Heather,a beautiful African handmade doll handcrafted by Effie also living on Sunshine Coast…
P:S Heather’s contact info if u would like to hire her or organize a Soul Collage Workshop:
