Description of SoulCollage® work

The first years of SoulCollage® Facilitator Trainings took place at Skyote Mountain, our private retreat in the Santa Cruz mountains of California. I hosted and cooked for trainings, from September 2003 through 2007, including the first SoulCollage® Facilitators Conference. I finally had the opportunity to become a SoulCollage® Facilitator myself in September 2012, in preparation for presenting SoulCollage® to the MA Spiritual Guidance students at Sofia University (formerly Institute of Transpersonal Psychology).

I have taught two courses for the SoulCollage® Institute, on Facilitating SoulCollage®: (Part 1)Deepening Your Role as Facilitator, and (Part 2) Practical Skills. They are each stand-alone courses, each addressing a different aspect of facilitation work.
