An Intuitive Art Journey Towards Self-Discovery, Self-Care, and Community
As Clinicians in the field of mental health, we can often find ourselves feeling:
- Isolated in our private practices or agency work,
- Burnt out as we struggle to balance our own need for self-care with the complicated and serious needs of the populations we serve.
- Disconnected from our own sense of freedom, creativity, and self-expression in our work as managed care increasingly demands the use of evidence-based interventions
- Loss of emotional space and time to reflect and process the deep work that we do
SoulCollage® is a wonderful way to slow down, connect with other practitioners, and spend time creatively exploring the ongoing “story of you”.
Through SoulCollage® you will:
- Cultivate a mindfulness practice that utilizes art, imagination and intuition
- Reflect, create and connect with others in a meaningful way
- Authentically express different parts of yourself and clarify your needs, desires, values and strengths
- Nurture your personal, professional and spiritual growth, while relaxing and enjoying yourself!
WHAT is SoulCollage®?
SoulCollage® is a creative art process that is both powerful and fun! Using images from magazines, you will create small collages that form a visual journal, each card representing a different aspect of yourself. No art experience is necessary!
