Collaging for Connection Day-Long Retreats

Sat., March 1st or Sat., March 15th, 9:30 – 4:00*

St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church, Framingham, MA, just off Rte. 9

Explore Your Inner Wisdom, Outer Worlds, Beliefs, and Faith with Collage

Join us for a creative and satisfying collage process.  You will make your own 5" x 8" collage cards - each one representing a single aspect of your inner and outer worlds using found images from a variety of sources.  Use the collage cards intuitively to answer life's questions and participate in self-discovery. Joyfully deepen your understanding of the relationships between your personality parts, you and your family/community/world/ beliefs.  Based on Seena B. Frost’s SoulCollage®, this collage process is a wonderful, expressive, low cost process that anyone can do.   You do NOT need to be particularly artistic to enjoy and benefit from it and to create beautiful and meaningful cards.   

Participants will spend the day immersed in exploration.  This will include an introduction to the principles of creating a card “deck”, including what the "suits" are, how to make cards, and how to use these cards for inner exploration and as Spiritual Practice.  This process is NOT to be confused with the occult, with divination, or fortune telling.  It is a way to discover, express, and interact with different aspects of that which is important to you.  And they are fun!  I have a personal “deck” of over 230 cards and never tire of making them, learning from them, and I use them daily in my prayer life.  

Our day will allow plenty of time for making cards, questions, and group interaction.  Bring images with you to use and share: magazines, postcards, calendars, pictures of favorite people – real, historical, Biblical, imaginary - pets, friends and family.  I will also have an abundance of images available for participants to use each week.

On 3/15 in the evening (times TBD) there will be a Labyrinth Walk in Harris Hall where participants from both retreat days will have a special opportunity to exhibit their cards should they so choose.  (More on that later!)

To register for the class contact Jill Mackavey at 508-881-9221 or at macktag@msn.com – or contact her with questions or for additional info.  ALSO, from 9 – 9:50 a.m., and at coffee hour after the 10 a.m. service on February 9th and February 23rd Jill will be available for Qs & As in the library at St. Andrew’s.  The retreat Fee is $50; coffee, tea, and lunch provided.  Sign up ASAP as space is limited!  *You may sign up for both days if interested.

Introduction to SoulCollage®

Introduction to SoulCollage®

Receive a general overview of SoulCollage®, as originally created by artist and therapist, Seena Frost. Then seek images you are strongly attracted to, that make you hesitate or give pause, that inspire you, that seem almost to call out to you. By tearing, cutting, pasting and collaging these images onto 5x8 inch matt board, you will make your own SoulCollage® card, or cards. Each individual card represents one single idea, theme or aspect of your Self. You’ll delve deeper into a card's meaning with brief writing exercises. By answering the “I Am the One Who…?”question, you will receive insight and guidance that comes from your own inner wisdom that is already inside you.

All card making materials will be supplied (including many images to choose from). If you have specific images you’d like to use for your own collage purposes, or if you have any old magazines, calendars, or catalogs you’d like to donate to the class, please bring them as well.

Age appropriateness: 14+ years to Adult.
Fee for the class: $25

Let us not look back in anger or forward in fear,
but around in awareness. 
                        ~James Thurber

Do you ever find yourself immersed in thoughts of the past, wishing it had been different?

Have you yearned to be free from worries about the future?

Is there a part of you that longs for the serenity of the present moment?

If so, we hope you’ll join the brother/sister team of John Pacheco and Anne Marie Bennett on this restful, soul-full weekend retreat.  We’ll discover ways to let go of the hold that the past has on us, release our need to worry about the future, and simply find joy in what is happening now.

Celebrating our pets with SoulCollage®

Celebrating our pets with SoulCollage®

Come join us for an evening of creative fun. We'll make personal tarot cards to honor our beloved pets (past and present) and discuss the Community suit in SoulCollage®. We’ll honor these companions that we’ve had the fortune to share our lives with, while discussing our relationship with animals in general. 

You are encouraged to bring a photo or two of actual animals you’ve known. Take a digital photo and print it out. Or make a color copy of a scanned snapshot. Use copies of your photos, because you will be cutting them up and incorporating them in your cards. Keep in mind that our tarot cards are 8" x 5", so resize photos to fit within those dimensions.

We’ll discuss the Strength tarot card and explore its wisdom about our connection with animals and our own animal nature. This card also represents the concept that love conquers fear. 

No prior art experience or tarot knowledge is required.

All card making materials and art supplies, coffee, and tea will be provided. Bring a notebook and a pen to take notes. If you've made SoulCollage® cards before, bring them too.

Everyone is welcome! Preregistration is recommended. Reserve your space today!

Living in the eternal now with SoulCollage®

Living in the eternal now with SoulCollage®

Come join us for a night of meditation, conversation, and creation as we explore mindful time perception. We’ll discuss techniques we can use to increase our awareness of *this* moment, and how to lean into the present more fully, while cultivating a deeper understanding of the non-linear aspects of time. We’ll also take a look at the Time-Space tarot card energy (also known as the Aeon, card XX in some tarot decks).

We’ll practice restful alertness in a group and see how that can lead to stress reduction and clarity. Using SoulCollage® as a guide, we’ll create personal tarot cards that express our relationship to time, our current life situations, and the world that surrounds us. 

By drawing focus to our perception of time, we can see how to integrate the things we’ve learned in the past, while shaping our future. We’ll discuss how to be open to whatever happens and become more aware of opportunities as they appear to us. And we’ll share our ideas about time and techniques for living in the here and now. 

No prior art experience or tarot knowledge is required.

All card making materials and art supplies, coffee, and tea will be provided. Bring a notebook and a pen to take notes. If you've made SoulCollage® cards before, bring them too.
