I love Wednesday afternoon SoulCollage(R) group; time to sit in a peaceful healing space and discover a little more about myself!
In SoulCollage(R) group, we create collage cards that represent some aspect of ourselves or experience. We make a mess, sifting through magazines and boxes of pictures, seeking images that resonate with our deeper knowing. We might share stories and have a laugh, sometimes expressing a sadness or frustration.
Often I notice the room becomes quiet; a palpable silence akin to being in a spiritual space. Then, an ‘aha’ moment might break the spell, and we return to the world to share our insights. Group members say they feel calmer and more relaxed during and after the group. They also report better decision making and self regulation. I am not surprised that recent research states that ‘quiet’ time is beneficial for developing insight and is linked to better decision making.
And you never know who might show up…
