Description of SoulCollage® work

I have been facilitating SoulCollage® groups in the Charlotte area since 2004 and never fail to be amazed at the discoveries that participants make when they allow themselves to follow their intuition and let the images speak to them.  SoulCollage® is an easy and fun, creative process which allows you to get to know yourself better through the experience of creativity.  I love creating a sacred space around the class and do this by incorporating poetry and music into my workshops.  In this fast paced world SoulCollage® is a perfect way to slow down and spend time building a relationship with yourself and your friends.  I find that SoulCollage® is also a form of visual meditation.

Trainer Statement

Catherine trained as a SoulCollage® Facilitator with Seena Frost in June, 2004 and has been a SoulCollage® Facilitator Trainer since 2012.  Catherine often combines her love of the labyrinth with the SoulCollage® process, and is also a Veriditas Faculty member. Outside Catherine's studio in Charlotte, NC you will find a labyrinth (or two), inside the studio you will find mixed media projects, photography, art journaling and more to inspire your creative life.

Personal work with own SoulCollage® cards

I turn to my SoulCollage® cards when I am confused, frustrated or anxious.  Making a card can often uncover what is really worrying me, and can bring me a sense of direction and peace.  Having collected images since I was a child and believing in the healing power of the image, SoulCollage® is a way to combine the things I love in a meaningful way.  It is also a way to re-discover the creative artist within.
