I SoulCollage® whenever I need to, and since I have everything I need at home, I often do it by myself. An added bonus to being a facilitator, besides my general love of sharing SoulCollage®, is that I get to SoulCollage® with others! It’s a different experience when there’s quiet, supportive energy in the room that’s not my own. I hope participants – you!- don’t mind me collaging with you. SoulCollaging® with others means everyone gets new ideas, shares out loud, and feels connected. I can identify with almost every card that other people make, and with their story, when they share. We are so connected, and it’s important to know that we are not alone, so not alone.
Doing it with family, kids and partners can enhance existing relationships. I love to see both young and adult kids with their parents doing art together and then sharing so personally. My mom, who lives in Michigan, came to one of my workshops when she was visiting. I never get to see her craft or hear her share personal feelings in that way, she’s usually in mom mode, not in self-care mode. That was a special day.
So invite others to SoulCollage® with you, even at home. Put on some tea and music, cut up some magazines, and be semi-social. It’s quality, quiet time.
Megan Menkveld created MMSoul to have a platform from which she could share SoulCollage® and the overall gift of art in order to create balance and wellness for all individuals open to receiving it. This blog is a way to stay in touch and keep the conversation going outside of workshop time. Please visit regularly, comment and share! All are welcome.
