Biography

My name is Chet Michalak and my home in Hudson, NH has a separate building from my home which I call the “Heart House” with two warm and cozy rooms for me to facilitate my SoulCollage® workshops.

I am offering Introduction to SoulCollage® workshops and special card making events for those interested in exploring deeper parts of their soul through art. Saturday or Sunday afternoons work best for workshops, but weekday evenings from 6-9PM may be pre-arranged. Why this time commitment? The full four hour agenda includes; an introduction to the Soulcollage® process, setting the meetings intention, ample time to collect pictures in the gallery room, an hour and a half to make your cards with breaks as needed and allowing 45 minutes to an hour at the end to read everyone’s cards, learn to write a poem for a card, answer questions and clean up and close the meeting.

You can request private sessions for 3 or more to invite friends or family for a group event as we can support 4-8 guests in the Heart House. I will be happy to set up a special date that works for your party or check my scheduled dates for open workshop offerings and start creating right away.

Your financial investment for the four hour workshops cover all tools and materials; 1000’s of pictures to choose from, cutting mats, scissors, glues sticks, tape and the 5x8 mat cards with protective sleeves to make as many as five cards. We always allow as much time as needed for all guests to stay and complete their cards and provide gentle guided card readings with the group, with your partner or in private side room with a trained facilitator.  This important final step should not be missed so you get the full understanding SoulCollage® cards. Trust the Process!

We will provide light health snacks, bottled water, hot teas or coffee and a refrigerator for your lunches. I will welcome you to the sacred space in my home featuring two large and comfortable rooms with private rest room.

Check back on this website for upcoming special events such as, building a deck, deck readings, card suites, couples only night, family night, girls night-out, men’s groups, Valentine’s day, etc. Check back to see special offers and upcoming events.

Peace and Blessings

  • Special workshop for experienced SoulCollage's Oct. 29th from 3:00-6:00pm. Walk-ins welcome. Prerequisite: Introduction workshop.

    Come spend a fun Sunday afternoon before Halloween’s little Ghosts and Goblins haunt your front doorstep. Halloween derive from ancient Pagan and Druid rituals continues to entertain young and old. Let's explore deeper.

    We will work on two specific cards types. According to Anne Marie Bennett, "Seena Frost suggests that every deck should have a Fool card in their council suit. She rarely recommends certain cards, but was very adamant that The Fool (as well as Death) are both important archetypes that touch every person on earth in one way or another as life goes on." (1)

    Come join us for real Treat and discover some Tricks and we'll create and read the new additions to our decks. If you have either or both archetypes already in your deck, consider stopping by to create other cards types that inspires you.

    Bring a Fiend!.

    Historic Reference: The Ancient Celtic festival of Samhain (pronounced Sah-win or Sow-in). The Celts celebrated the year on two occasions, Beltaine, the first of May and Samhain, the first of November. Thought to be magical times of the year as transitions to summer and winter, the dark months when the dead from the underworld walk among mankind.

    On the eve of Samhain, November 1st, people in elaborate costumes (the Fool) would build bonfires to ward of the roaming dead, witches, demons and unholy spirits (Death) as believed by these very superstitious people. Calling forth their ancestors to protect them and sit at the empty seat at the head of the dinner table. One place setting will be set at our craft table for our ancestors to join us in spirit! Who will show up?!

    Your investment for this exciting workshop is $20 PP for all the tools and materials you need to complete up to 5 cards.

    We will provide tea, coffee and water. Feel free to bring a snack or meal.

    We may end with a bonfire to warm our Souls if you'd like to stay. (Weather permitting)

  • An Introduction To SoulCollage®

    Immerse yourself in a fun, inspiring and intuitive day of creativity - playfully creating small collaged images for a deeper self-understanding.

    You will begin to create your own deck of SoulCollage® cards and practice reading them through a self-exploration process led by a trained, compassionate facilitator.  SoulCollage® cards are often filled with meaningful insights and guidance for your life's journey.

    SoulCollage® is easy to learn and requires no previous artistic skills and you will take home several completed cards and hopefully a love of this creative process.

    SoulCollage® is a creative, fun tool for easy, artful self-expression.  It was developed by Seena B. Frost, M. Div., M.A. Using intuition and imagination; you create your own collaged cards, where each card reflects a different aspect of who you are.

    The cards are made from simple materials: magazine images, scissors, glue, and mat board. Best of all, it is a creative process that is truly accessible to everyone, even people who believe they have no artistic ability.

    This introduction workshop is for those that are new to SoulCollage® as well as those with experience seeking a place to play.

    Your investment for workshop is $50 for all the materials you need to complete up to 6 cards. Additional supplies can be purchased if you wish to make more at home.  We will provide tea, coffee, and water. Feel free to bring a lunch or snack.

    I am also available for private workshops if you have a group of 4-8 people. Contact me for more information.
