About this event


This class will introduce you to the process of making a SoulCollage card deck using images from magazines, the internet, or old books. Imagination, insight, and intuition guide you to create your cards (no art skills needed). Some use their cards for inspiration in creative writing and art. Some consult their cards for meditation and journal writing. Counseling professionals find the process of making cards and learning to read the messages of the cards helps clients open. grow, and heal. Insight gained through SoulCollage cards will surprise and delight you. This class is an excellent and fun way to enter into communion with the soul as part of the journey of aging.

This class is hosted by the OST Forest Dwelling Program which is a 2-year intensive formational program for people seeking to live into a mature spirituality. The Forest Dwelling Program offers a glimpse into themes of aging which are developed and harvested on the spiritual journey of an elder. This art series will encourage you to explore creative ways of healing and being that can lead you deeper into the life of a spiritually mature and loving elder.
