Biography

Heidi is a passionate Creatress, devoted to personal development, community evolution and service. She has just relocated to Victoria from Maui, Hawaii where she lived, taught and mentored in her community for nearly twenty years. She has decades of group facilitation experience which has generated strong interpersonal skills, supporting participants to relax, trust themselves, take risks, be creative and deepen in their awareness of self. Heidi has been involved in Soul Collage for several years and uses it as a daily personal Practice. Her enthusiasm for sharing the process is born of her desire to offer the same depth of experience and inner reflection that she has received.

Heidi’s greatest passion is in working one-on-one with people as well as hosting groups where she can create a safe container that generates trust, self-awareness, depth of presence and transpersonal growth.

Description of SoulCollage® work

Heidi has been collecting images and doing collage art for decades, so when she found SoulCollage several years back she was delighted to develop that art as a spiritual practice. A propensity for the creative, she's dabbled in photography and hosted three art shows with her photos mounted on handmade locally-sourced frames. She is also a Vipassana meditator and has been on a lifelong journey of self-discovery and personal growth (which SoulCollage supports magnificently!). She loves to travel, learn and have new life experiences. Heidi also dances as a regular practice with a troupe and is currently co-creating workshops that combine practices of SoulCollage with authentic movement dance, holotropic breathwork and grief work. Heidi has been a teacher, mentor, facilitator and workshop leader for the past 30 years and is devoted to sharing her passion for SoulCollage and its transformative power.

"You must give birth to your images. They are the future waiting to be born. Fear not the strangeness you feel. The future must enter you long before it happens. 

Just wait for the birth, for the hour of the new clarity."

Rainer Maria Rilke

Personal work with own SoulCollage® cards

SoulCollage has become a daily personal practice. Each day after I meditate, I take 30-60 minutes and either make a card, journal about a card, or do a card reading that can give me some insight into my day. My current focus is on Jungian archetypes and specifically how they influence the Committee and Council Suits. I am reading about archetypes and exploring my own archetypical wheel. Great insights and perspective on my life are ensuing, insights I will bring into my workshops!

  • Lovers of self-exploration and creativity, join Heidi for an introduction to SoulCollage®. This is a unique opportunity to awaken your intuition and engage your curiosity within a safe and supportive environment. Follow your instincts and choose from provided images guided by Jungian archetypes, then create your very own SoulCollage® cards from those images. Journal writing, dyads and group sharing will integrate the deep wisdom that your cards hold for you.

    Within the five-week course, Heidi will provide an overview of the history of SoulCollage® and its founding principles. Participants will also learn about the four suits in SoulCollage® decks, the Transpersonal suit and how to do readings with their cards. There will be guidance and space provided to create cards from all of the suits and to explore various ways of using your cards.

  • This non-residential 2-day workshop (Friday evening and all day Saturday) will provide an experiential journey into Stan Grof’s Holotropic Breathwork’s drug-free approach to generating extraordinary states of consciousness for healing and self-exploration. Via in-depth Breathwork sessions, we will be drawing forth what is unconscious, working with it and then expressing it through the SoulCollage® process. 

    Our psyches are organized for ordinary states of consciousness, consequently, insights don’t generally emerge during our daily activities. Holotropic Breathwork activates non-ordinary states of consciousness that lie below the surface; SoulCollage then offers us a process by which to create a tangible visual expression of that which we have drawn forth. SoulCollage is an insightful integration tool, as work in the deep psyche requires proper integration. Please bring a journal. The workshop will include light meals. 

    You will be hosted by certified facilitators:

    Heidi Erhardt, Soul Collage® 

    Carolyn Green, Holotropic Breathwork™

  • This workshop will be an exploration into the beautifully profound places within you. As we approach the darkest time of the year, we can turn in mindfully and choose creative processes to deepen our understanding of ourselves.

    You will enter a room, resplendent with images, and allow your intuitive self to choose. You will collage these images into a card and through an inquiry process, listen to the wisdom awaiting you within the card and within your own soul. Integrative journaling and diads will follow. Please bring a journal, scissors, glue stick, water bottle and your creative spirit.
