Biography

I am an artist and psychotherapist offering SoulCollage to individuals and groups on a variety of themes related to personal development and just for fun too. Based in the greater Portland, Maine area, I enjoy providing a safe, dynamic and inspiring space for individuals to come together and create. I am available for individual meetings, group facilitation and for open studio hours as well. Get in touch if you'd like to collaborate on an idea!

    SoulCollage®
    Originated by Seena Frost, SoulCollage® is a technique for accessing your intuition by creating a unique deck of cards that will help guide you through life's questions and transitions. The SoulCollage® process begins as simple creative fun, but quickly deepens to surprise and awaken you. This workshop will be an introduction to the technique as well as an opportunity for reflection, playfulness and self-discovery in a dynamic group setting. The morning will include guided meditation, journaling and lots of time for collage.

    Making, Being, and Being Made: Contemplative Writing for Makers 
    If making is a practice of paying attention, what can we learn about ourselves, and the world, by tuning in to the layers of meaning and metaphor embedded in every thread of our lives as makers? How is making its own kind of making sense? How does what we make in turn make us? This workshop is one part making, one part meditation, and one part contemplative/creative writing. We’ll begin with some quiet, meditative handwork, (sewing, stitching, spinning knitting, drawing, etc) each tending to our own work. From this place of deep listening and connection, we’ll use a variety of prompts that will act as invitations into memory, metaphor, and meaning. No formal writing and/or making experience is required!

    Please bring some handwork and a journal. It’s best to bring something you can work on without concentrating too much, so that your hands can be steadily working, leaving your thoughts to drift. Simple stitching and drawing materials will be provided for those in between or without projects.
