Description of SoulCollage® work

Peggy has been a  SoulCollage®  enthusist for many years.  This fascination in creating cards and reflecting on the inner wisdom that each card can bring led to facilitator training in April 2019.

What makes SoulCollage®  such a wonderful process is it builds community, strengthens intuition, fosters creativity, and works with both the left and right side of the brain.  What's not to love about SoulCollage® !

  • Self-care is vital to prevent burn-out particularly for people in health and education professions.  Make time to attend this two-hour workshop that will leave you relaxed, re-energized, and ready to finish the semester.  
    Workshop Details: 
    Dr. Peggy Liggit, certified facilitator
    Through the  SoulCollage®  process your creative brain center will be activated by constructing cards with visual images.  Next, you'll tap into the inner wisdom of your subconscious brain through a unique reflective practice.  You'll also learn how to apply this process with students.
