Biography

 

Laura Lyon, M.Ed., has been a dedicated teacher of adults and children for over 40 years as an elementary teacher, literacy teacher, consultant and instructional coach in the field of literacy and creative writing. She has been a collage artist for decades and SoulCollage® facilitator since January 2011. She brings openness, humor, kindness and a welcoming attitude to this work. Her keen understanding of all aspects of the SoulCollage® process are a hallmark of her workshops. She offers workshops for Boulder Valley Schools through Lifelong Learning, Creative Life Center and in her own studio in Boulder, Colorado.

Laura is certified as a Nondual Kabbalistic Healer, which is a profoundly transformative and deeply nourishing form of healing. It integrates the wisdom of Buddhist teachings of nonduality with the wisdom of the Tree of Life, along with modern psychological insight.  The work of SoulCollage® and Nondual Kabbalistic Healings go hand in hand to include and unify all of the many aspects of self on this human journey of life.

Description of SoulCollage® work

It has been six years since I began my SoulCollage® journey at Ghost Ranch in 2010, and through using the medium of collage, I have awakened to new understandings, possibilities and opportunities.  My life often seems to spin with a mixture of productivity, idleness, joys, sorrows, focus, distractions and endless questions about what it all means.  Although I often don't have definitive answers to my questions, what I do know is that when I make a card or draw a card in a reading, I settle into gratitude for this gift of SoulCollage®, this artistic tool of expression that has helped me to be more consciously ALIVE.  Using my intuition and imagination to create an image of some aspect of myself and my relationship to others and the world is mystically enlightening and fascinating.

My workshops and open studio time provide an oasis for gentle inspiration to care for your precious life soul using a combination of poetry, music, deep relaxation and journaling to enhance the SoulCollage® process of combining images, words and intuition in a unique and creative process that anyone can do.  This process is particularly helpful during times of transition or for those looking for a way to creatively express themselves.

Personal work with own SoulCollage® cards

 

While browsing in a bookstore in 2001, Seena Frost’s first SoulCollage® book practically jumped into my hands. After reading the book, I adapted what I had read creating my own personal collaging techniques. I involved my family in making group collages on Christmas Eve and invited friends over to create vision boards.  However, in the fall of 2010 I was able to travel to Ghost Ranch in New Mexico to learn the true power of SoulCollage® with a weeklong workshop in an inspiring setting.    Returning home, I made SoulCollage® cards for three months absorbing the benefits of creating cards that reflected the many aspects of my being.  I learned how readings enhance my life, heal my spirit and guide me making some tough decisions.  I knew it was time to share and bring this inspirational process of SoulCollage® into the world.  I took the Facilitator Training with Kat Kirby in January 2011.

WILD WOMAN WEDNESDAY

The first Wednesday of each month, drop into the studio any time between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. to enjoy a glass of wine or tea and to make some cards. 

To keep in the spirit of the Wild Woman archetype, which is wholeness and freedom, there is no focus on a particular suit nor any time constraints. Just creative card making.

One introductory SoulCollage® session is recommended, but not required.

Cost: $20.  Pre-registration is required by contacting Laura at laura@lauralyonstudio.com

 

PRIVATE SESSIONS AVAILABLE                                              

Are you curious about a particular aspect of SoulCollage®, sensing that you need more personal guidance?

  For those who do prefer a more individual time with Laura either to create cards, to learn more about a particular aspect of  SoulCollage®, to have a guided session regarding your personal cards or to have a reading, you may schedule a time that suits your schedule.  The goal of a private session is to gently teach/coach you to see you inner wisdom through the cards you create.  Although your inner wisdom is available to you anytime, trusting it takes guidance and practice.

The cost is $40/hour and can be scheduled from 1 to 3 hours. Email to set up a time.

 

ARE THE SCHEDULED SOULCOLLAGE® TIMES INCONVENIENT?

If you have two friends who want to join you to create cards, times other than the scheduled monthly STUDIO WORKSHOP can be arranged.  Cost is variable depending upon number of people and special requests. Email to set up a time.
