SOULCOLLAGE®


SoulCollage® is a visual journal that we create to access our inner intuition, our inner wisdom, and our resources. SoulCollage® is one of many wonderful tools to address the question, “Who am I and what am I doing on this earth?” SoulCollage® is a fun and process that anyone can do. People make a deck of 5 x 8” collaged cards, one card at a time. These individual cards make up a unique deck, where each card represents a different aspect of the individual. COMPLETE DETAILS AND SCHEDULE HERE  Please contact Lynn Schelitzche, Director of Faith Formation, lschelitzche@paxchristi.com, for additional information.
