Explore — discover — integrate — become whole

SoulCollage® is a creative psycho-spiritual system that allows you to discover yourself at your own pace, one card at a time. Everyone can do it. It’s an easy yet powerful tool for transformation engaging your innate creativity to access deeper layers of your soul.

SoulCollage® is a vehicle into the soul. It honors the personal, archetypal, energetic and spiritual dimensions of your being. The result of practicing SoulCollage® is psychological wholeness, self-acceptance, inner peace, and balance.

SoulCollage® allows your inner artist to play. While you engage in card-making with SoulCollage® you give voice to the many aspects of your being. That’s where the magic in SoulCollage® lies. It reaches beyond the persona and the personality into what usually stays hidden, and offers an opportunity to become more aware. Each card contributes to a more complete understanding of yourself and your true needs at the moment. You will be surprised at the healing power behind this easy practice.

SoulCollage® is a window into the soul. It offers us a way to bridge between the hidden unconscious and the conscious mind (or ego) by which most of us have learned to define ourselves.

Why SoulCollage®? Why dig into the soul? The unconscious is vast and powerful. We have every reason to befriend it. In the form of gut feelings it is always ready to give us precious hints on how to react or go forward. It knows with certainty what is good for us and what is not. Yet, It’s the rational mind that we learn to identify with and use as the basis for our decision making. Usually, all is well until things suddenly go wrong and our plans and dreams crumble under the weight of adverse circumstances.

If you have ever tried to explain personal catastrophes purely with the tools of the conscious mind, you probably got stuck in a loop, asking “how could this happen?” You may have tried other non-logical methods, such as astrology. The explanation might be deductible from the stars, but it is also in yourself. Your unconscious is connected with the entire universe. It holds information that our fanciest technology has no clue how to get.

The unconscious is also the place where deep transformation takes place. But, by definition, the unconscious is hidden from our conscious minds. How can we access it? If we want to communicate with the unconscious we need to explore ways to interact with it. We have to learn its language. The easiest way to communicate with the unconscious is through images. As C.G. Jung said, images are the language of the unconscious.

The unconscious tries to reach us all the time. It does that through intuitive insights and through the images in dreams. The trouble is that we hardly notice these messages, let alone understand and heed them. It takes time and a conscious effort to switch from the prevalent mode of doing and thinking that we all have been trained in for many years, to being, receiving, and intuiting. However, once we do, learning the language of the unconscious is not hard. All we need to do is to combine intuition with images.

That is exactly where SoulCollage® comes in. The media of collage offers a highly accessible tool for joining the components of the language of the unconscious. When we engage in collage by following our intuition while choosing images, we create a bridge between the unconscious and the consciousness. Deep transformation can happen once we tap into this connection.

In SoulCollage®, we engage the unconscious and receive information from it. It is the beginning of a conversation between consciousness and the unconscious that we can continue and deepen by contemplating our SoulCollage® cards. The benefits are tremendous. We begin to get more in touch with ourselves. We start to see and acknowledge what is happening on a soul level. Now we can consciously begin to do something about it. We now can begin to consciously nurture ourselves on a soul level. Deep healing and deep transformation follow.

SoulCollage® is a creative psycho-spiritual system that allows us to discover ourselves at our own pace, one card at a time. It is a vehicle into the soul. SoulCollage® honors the personal, archetypal, energetic and spiritual dimensions of our being. Each card contributes to a more complete picture of who we are. The result of practicing SoulCollage® is psychological wholeness.

About the SoulCollage® deck

SoulCollage® is a system and a path.
After practicing SoulCollage® for a while you will be able to organize your cards according to SoulCollage® suits :

– committee
– community
– council
– companions
– transpersonal cards.

Over time, you will be able to use your deck for divination. It is a bit as if you had a personal tarot deck!

SoulCollage® is a powerful and fun psycho-spiritual creative practice that allows us to gradually grow by continuously integrating more aspects of who we are. This dynamic practice helps process our complexities, ambiguities and contradictions, ultimately leading to a sense of clarity, wholeness and inner peace.
