Biography

I like to wonder; I’m very curious about the world and myself. And I’m grateful that since 2013, SoulCollage® has supported my curiosity by providing a limitless process to ask questions and gain information that I had not accessed through other techniques. 
 
As a SoulCollage® facilitator, my goal is to provide spaces where participants can enjoy their own self-discovery, inner wisdom, unique perspectives, and insights. Working with images can help us see possibilities – even through obstacles. Each person can engage their strengths, receptivity, and creativity as they explore their infinitely rich paths and unique connections. 
 
My academic training includes Applied Experimental Psychology (MS, PhD) and Speech Communication (BA) with a special interest in evolutionary and ecological perspectives. My professional experience includes 30 years in non-profit education as learner, instructor, researcher, teammate, and leader. In addition to SoulCollage® facilitation training, I have also received Storywork facilitation training. Overall, I serve as a champion for lifelong learning opportunities that nourish the many facets of our lives.
 
I would love to meet you and talk about SoulCollage® opportunities. Please contact me anytime.

  • Accessing our wisdom with SoulCollage®​ and stories

    SoulCollage® Saturdays are playful, creative opportunities to explore and imagine questions and possibilities about yourself, your paths, and your world. Each session offers unique ways to visually and poetically communicate and foster insights involving energies and meanings in your life. These sessions are facilitated to foster the connections and acceptance of a small group, allowing members to share light and reflection in a receptive space.

    In 2020 we’ll explore metaphors, perspectives, archetypes, and stories that are meaningful to you. Morning sessions will focus on our relationships with the wildlife around us and afternoon sessions will focus on our relationships with society.

    You are welcome to register for any morning and afternoon sessions. Each session lasts 2.5 hours and costs $40. All supplies are included.

    Please write marciebenne@gmail.com to learn more and to register.  Space is limited, requiring pre-registration.
