Abstract

SoulCollage® is an accessible collage process with practical applications. It’s easy to learn and inexpensive. Best of all, it inspires individual creativity and encourages good communication in families and groups.

Since 2001, Seena B. Frost’s work has ignited a worldwide interest in SoulCollage®, which invites anyone to be creative and undertake an adventure of self discovery. All you need is a good pair of scissors, pre-cut mat board cards, images you can find anywhere, and glue! After you have made some cards, you can consult them, ask important life questions and let your cards speak your own intuitive wisdom back to you.

SoulCollage® has evolved into an international community of Facilitators and SoulCollagers enjoying and sharing this simple, yet profound, process. SoulCollage® Evolving gives the basic instructions for how to make and do readings with SoulCollage® cards, and describes how individuals and groups are using this process with different age groups and in many socioeconomic, cultural, and religious contexts to discover their wisdom and change their world.

 


Seena B. Frost ~ Author of SoulCollage® Evolving

Seena B. Frost, M. Div., M.A. studied theology at Yale Divinity School, married, raised four children, and then received a Master's degree in psychology from Santa Clara University. She has been a psychotherapy clinician and supervisor in California for over thirty years, and has used many healing modalities including the work of C. G. Jung, Fritz Perls, Virginia Satir, Eric Berne, and others.

In 2001, Seena's first SoulCollage® book was a finalist for the Nautilus 2002 Book Awards for titles that contribute significantly to conscious living and positive social change. Seena's new book, SoulCollage® Evolving: An Intuitive Collage Process for Self-Discovery & Community (November 2010 release), chronicles the growth of SoulCollage® from Seena's original seed idea to today's community of 1000 trained Facilitators in 41 states and 18 countries and a team of SoulCollage® Trainers who offer the basic SoulCollage® Facilitator Trainings internationally. SoulCollagers everywhere are discovering the transformative power of images, imagination, and intuition through the simple yet profound process of SoulCollage®.

Seena has recorded eight excellent CDs that provide in-depth information about this process, available through Hanford Mead Publishers, Inc.

Praise for SoulCollage® Evolving
 

"Seena Frost’s new book, SoulCollage: An Intuitive Collage Process for Self-Discovery and Community, updates this magical process and makes it even more relevant to an easy and miraculous journey of understanding the self, healing deep wounds, and making clear how to become the creative possibilities we were meant to be. Having the new book symbolically helps me renew my commitment to the process. SoulCollage® is more than a deck of pretty collage pictures. Even non-artists can enter this realm of wonder and quickly experience the awe of giving voice to their inner world. What happens is beyond words in terms of meeting or returning to the self and unleashing the power of what is inside of us. At once, wisdom, contentment, and peace of mind fill the spirit. This new book makes this even easier to happen; this process has changed my life. Spread the word! Thank you, Seena."

A Review by Sue Gelber, SoulCollage® Facilitator

SoulCollage®: An Intuitive Process for Individuals and Groups made its debut in 2001. In her third book, SoulCollage® Evolving, Seena Frost introduces her readers to a now mature SoulCollage® and describes its unfolding in the world at large. She takes her teachings one step further, clarifying the tools of SoulCollage®—a process so universal that it transcends the common limitations of age, income, education, confidence, talent, and personal history. SoulCollage® is simple enough for a child, yet profound enough to change a life.
 
What occurs when one creates a SoulCollage® deck—i.e., trusting the process and gluing images to standardized mat board "cards," then taking a few minutes to journal from simple prompts—is that the recesses of Soul begin to emerge. Forgotten, yet often cherished, parts of you begin to matter again. Personality traits that were adopted (or adapted) to survive childhood, yet no longer serve your current life, are identified and reconfigured to fit who you are today. More importantly, SoulCollage® creates space for who you are becoming. You now have a personal divinatory tool where you can go to for guidance, support, clarity, and comfort. The magic is that each card is your voice. Each card merely mirrors the inner wisdom that you are now able to access through your chosen images.
 
As a trained SoulCollage® Facilitator, I am pleased that SoulCollage® Evolving kept some of my favorite cards from Seena’s first book, while adding many new ones. (One nice touch was adding an index of photographs.) I love the new opening SoulCollage® card, "Gratitude," which embodies the understated elegance of this book. Seena has simplified concepts, including the SoulCollage® process. Chapter 1 includes a new section that talks about images, cards and copyright considerations. Upfront explanations dispel confusion surrounding SoulCollage® terms, such as Neter, Shadow, and even Soul. A new chapter describes each of the Transpersonal Cards in-depth. SoulCollage® Evolving is more than 40 pages longer than Seena's first book. Even so, it feels streamlined, is a quick read, and leaves me more deeply invested in my own process and the SoulCollage® community.

The content in this book is new—the result of the contributions of an expanding worldwide community of SoulCollagers (2000+ trained SoulCollage® Facilitators, spanning 34 countries and 47 USA states), including Seena. And SoulCollage® is not all that's evolving. Seena is not the same person who wrote the first book nine years ago and anyone who's made even one SoulCollage® card is not the same person after reading it.
