Biography

Mirabai is an international SoulCollage® Facilitator and Trainer currently facilitating groups in Europe and the United States. She was trained by Seena Frost, the founder of SoulCollage® and adds this training to her years of personal exploration into different modalities of meditation, yoga, spiritual guidance and healing practices. She has been an active student of the Spiritual Guidance Wisdom School since 2008 and has studied in Zurich as well as continuing her study in the US.  She weaves these and all of her teachings into a joyful tapestry of learning, creativity and fun. Mirabai is an initiate of the Sufi Ruhaniat Order, a mentor, teacher, writer and guide. She is committed to her own ongoing transformation and refinement of character and enjoys sharing all that she’s learned along her journey. 

Description of SoulCollage® work

SOULCOLLAGE® WILL TRAVEL!    I facilitate SoulCollage® Groups in California and Europe, but by no means limit my offerings to these locales.  It is my desire to bring the blessings of SoulCollage® to all corners of the world.  I believe that working together actively with others can present many opportunities, especially helping each of us as we become more intimately related with ourselves and our many intricate aspects, while becoming more intimately related to those around us.   Rather a small group of friends in your home or a larger public venue, the half-day or one-day workshops are designed to meet the needs of the group. I offer introductory workshops as well as varying themes.  Language is no barrier.

Personal work with own SoulCollage® cards

I have been intimately involved with the SoulCollage® process since 2007. Immediately after making my first cards, I experienced that my personal awareness had claimed a new depth and since then I’ve developed new rhythms to integrate into my daily life, not only helping me but also in assisting others better. This is one of the reasons I became a SoulCollage® Facilitator...to share this transformative tool and to help others to know themselves better.  My deck contains more than 120 cards and both my personal story and the Greater story continue to reveal themselves with more clarity. I consult my cards regularly for personal inquiry and development. My personal myth is unfolding right before my eyes!  As a result of this deep and profound work I am currently writing a myth.

Other Notes

SOULCOLLAGE® WILL TRAVEL!    I facilitate SoulCollage® Groups in California and Europe, but by no means limit my offerings to these locales.

  • Come join me for the SoulCollage® Facilitator Training in Sonoma County.  Nestled in the redwoods, near the Russian River and the Pacific Ocean lies St. Dorothy's Rest.  A quiet retreat center in Sonoma County, about an hour north of San Francisco along the famed Bohemian Highway. The oldest camp in California, St. Dot’s has been serving children and adults from all faiths and all walks of life for over 100 years. 

    7 Reasons Why People Train as SoulCollage® Facilitators (in addition to their enthusiasm for creating and reading from their own SoulCollage® cards!)

    1. Non-artists struggling to express their longing to be creative appreciate that there is no wrong or right way in SoulCollage®; the process is simple, fun and profound. Anyone able to manage scissors and glue can create beautiful cards and enjoy sharing them with others.
    2. Therapists, counselors, nurses and other helping professionals find a creative way to work with clients that goes beyond words and concepts, one that provides direct experiential access to intuition and transformation.  (CEU's information below)

    3. Healers and people seeking to heal see in SoulCollage® a gentle yet deep self-care method that reveals their inner guidance by exploring and "becoming" images and using their cards to do SoulCollage® readings.

    4. Artists interested in bringing a new dimension to their art find a spiritually-infused process that they can share with others, a creative threshold to surprising revelations, greater self-understanding and the enriching acceptance of the light and shadow at play in our lives.

    5. Anyone who values participating in and building learning communities based on mutual respect, support, and a commitment to care for self and others are drawn to learn and share SoulCollage®.

    6. People looking for a way to give back to their communities, families, friends, children, church groups, women's/men's groups, hospices and other organizations see SoulCollage® as an opportunity to support the growth and well-being of others and themselves.

    7. Individuals seeking spiritual renewal and a creative way to access their deeper guidance and wisdom.
