What Can I Expect from a
SoulCollage® Workshop?

Join a group of like-minded participants equally eager to play, create, and share knowing that Mariabruna facilitates the group with great respect for everyone’s comfort and confidentiality. You will work and share at your own pace in a non-competitive atmosphere, guided in a personalized, lively, yet gentle manner not devoid of humor. You will feel supported while re-discovering shared human traits and you will be delighted by the diversity with which every one expresses her/himself. You will leave feeling inspired and more centered for having spent time in closer touch with your own inner self and having shared from a deep place of reverence and attention. Time will probably pass quickly because you are having fun ripping pictures out of magazines, organizing, gluing and pasting and then magically holding in your hands a finished product. Come and let the images inspire you and lead you home to your own nature.

SoulCollage® - Transforming Self and World
April 4-6, 2014 – Esalen Institue, Big Sur, CA

Imagine spending a creative weekend beginning to collage (or continuing to collage) your own deck of imaginal cards. You will browse through piles of images and find those that call to you. They could be images that represent some of the many guides, allies, and challengers active in your soul. Using these images you will collage cards that depict your personality parts, your archetypal guides, your energetic companion animals, and even some of the sentient beings that have loved, taught, and challenged you. Along with time for creating cards there will be time to gather in small groups and speak from your images. You will be surprised by the wisdom that bubbles up from your deep soul when you step imaginatively into an image and speak to a question from this new perspective. A supportive community listening as witnesses and scribing your words will help make this a memorable experience. This workshop will be adapted for both beginner and advanced students of SoulCollage®. Recommended: SoulCollage® Evolving (book) and Introduction to SoulCollage®(CD) by Seena Frost. Register and learn more here.

SoulCollage® and the New Paradigm
April 7-11, 2014 – Esalen Institute, Big Sur, CA

During this workshop participants will collage personal cards, speak to questions from their card images, and discover firsthand how this creative practice reflects vital elements of the dawning paradigm. Collage itself is a metaphor for what millions of people are, right now around the world, calling into reality: a new, cosmic unity. With collage we take separated, seemingly unrelated images, and find how they fit together into a beautiful and balanced unity. The more we practice the SoulCollage® process, the more our innate creativity will unfold in all aspects of our lives. We become co-creators on many levels. Cooperation takes the place of competitiveness; feminine energy rises to balance masculine energies. We learn the value of listening to many perspectives, both internally as our many personality parts state their needs (and gripes), and externally as the needs (and gripes) of other persons and other nations are listened to and honored. These are critical pieces of the new paradigm and of this practice. SoulCollage® is deceptively simple; no special artistic talent is needed. And still it can jostle and wake up a part of the human soul which this dying paradigm has ignored or minimized: our creative core. Arising in the new paradigm must be the compassionate, heart energy of creative souls. Register and learn here.

A Journey Back in Time
June 14-24, 2014 – Tuscany, Italy

The land, history, food and art of Italy provide an atmosphere beyond compare for the creative and transformative process of SoulCollage®. Our base for this retreat will be in Sovana – a small town in a little known corner of southwest Tuscany with a beautiful charm and spirit. This is a hidden and untainted territory rich in beauty and a historic and artistic heritage that stretches back 3,000 years. Our days will be spent traveling both inwardly through the SoulCollage® process and outwardly through time, as we explore this delightful region of Italy. Our excursions, which will give us insights into the history and culture of our surroundings will include visits to medieval hilltop villages, archeological sites, one of Italy’s best thermal hot-springs and the Maremma Hills. Our home for the retreat will be the Sovana Hotel and Resort  (www.hotelsovana.com), which sits on 5 acres of tranquil parkland and olive groves – right in the center of the small village. This ten day retreat is carefully designed to provide a nurturing blend of relaxation, transformative creative experience and cultural exploration.

The Three Faces of Silence
June 27-30, 2014 – CasaCorra, RE, Italy
In Italian and English (possibly in German as well)

During this weekend we will honor the Transpersonal Dimension and take inspiration from the three silent cards that represent it in SoulCollage®. This is not a ‘teaching workshop’, but rather a profound experience of “being with” as opposed to “doing”. In the old tradition of annual spiritual Retreats, we invite those who seek a sacred time and a rhythm conducive to the connection with Spirit to join us in this quest of Silence and renewal. Poetry, music and reflections will prepare us to an extended period of silence that can be interrupted if one so chooses, by individual consultations with Mariabruna. *The Source, the name Seena has given to the unnamable, omnipresent, infinite One, the Totality many of us perceive as divine, is described beautifully in the SoulCollage® book. So are the SoulEssence (the fragment of the Source within us), and the Witness (that unique human ability to perceive the SoulEssence as the compassionate observer of our inner development).  These cards represent an energy that is not bound by time or space: their voice being that of Silence they are not used for consultation. They can be used for contemplation and remembrance of our quintessentially infinite and divine nature. To prepare for this Retreat one might also listen to Mariabruna’s online recorded class on the Transpersonal Cards available in English. Click here to learn more and purchase this course. Beginners are welcome, no previous experience in the method is required. Tuition is 180 Euros. Room and board according to CasaCorra’s 2014 rates. Contact Mariabruna to register.

In Italian and German

Join us for an in-depth small group experience to explore the Personal Shadow. Discover the light in unexpected corners of yourself and befriend the most challenging aspects of your life! Join us for this advanced SOULCOLLAGE® Workshop designed to explore Shadow with loving and clear eyes in a supportive and inspiring environment. Using your SoulCollage® deck, explore the interplay of Light and Shadow in your personality parts and in the Archetypes that inspire you. Make new cards from your discoveries, find deeper meaning and balance in your cards and share in group readings. Although the ego resists the invitation to explore Shadow, those who ventured into this journey describe it as the most rewarding and transforming work they have done with their cards. They report that it continued to simmer in their soul long after the workshop and discovered that its lasting ultimate gift is greater freedom of being and deeper peace. 

Entdecke das Licht in den entlegenen Winkeln deines Selbst und befreunde dich mit den herausfordernsten Aspekten deines Lebens! Wir laden dich ein, an diesem fortgeschrittenen SoulCollage® Workshop teilzunehmen. In unterstützender und inspirierender Umgebung erforschen wir liebevoll und mit klarem Blick unsere Schatten. Wir nutzen unsere SoulCollage® Karten und erkunden das Spiel zwischen Licht und Schatten in den uns inspirierenden Persönlichkeitsanteilen und Archetypen. Aus unseren Entdeckungen gestalten wir neue Karten und finden in den Readings tieferen Zugang zu deren Bedeutung. Details zu Unterkunft, Preis, Anmeldung und Inhalten erhältst du Anfangs März. Wir freuen uns, wenn du dir die Daten bereits reservierst!

Introduction to SoulCollage® Workshops

The following workshops are full, day long introductory experiential workshop directly preceding Facilitator Trainings. These workshops are open to everyone – even those NOT participating in the Training. However, they are highly recommended for those taking the Facilitator Training immediately following these workshops. These workshops will be dedicated to the revision of the SoulCollage® method as well as introducing the four suits and the fundamental tenets of this creative method. In these hands-on workshops, let the images you are drawn to capture your imagination and stimulate your creativity as you learn how to make your own deck of personal collage cards and discover how to give a card its own unique voice. As you create your deck of cards you will deepen your understanding of your relationship to your personality parts, your family and community, and enter the world of symbols and archetypes that weave your personal story into the larger story of humanity.

You will be guided gently through the course. You will learn that you are a part of a community of other SoulCollagers. We will share our cards and our questions, our revelations and our discoveries!
