So if you ever wondered what a person “does” with their SoulCollage® cards…this is a good example of one way they can be used.
My intention in sharing these intimate recordings is partly to express myself as an artist in a richer way, but also to offer a deeper understanding of this practice for those who are interested in SoulCollage®, but for whatever reason have not yet tried to do a reading. Many SoulCollage® practitioners ask themselves the questions and then write down their answers in a journal. I have done it this way for the past three years but have never been fully satisfied with the break in the free flow of words that occurs when I stop to write. I’ve always preferred having someone witness and scribe for me for that reason as well as for the feeling of community that is built by sharing the experience with another person. It is not always possible to have someone available to help in this way however, and it is different to be a solo witness to ones own reading. In the beginning, I do recommend having a chevruta (partner/friend) as a scribe and witness until you feel confident in the process of facilitating the “I am the One Who” questions for yourself.
I used Garage Band on my MacBook to make these podcasts…but you could use a simple cassette recorder to do the same thing. I also offer one on one SoulCollage® readings by phone for clients whowould like the support of a trained facilitator. Just send me an e-mail if you want more information about that.

As always, I am grateful to the many artists and photographers whose work I have incorporated into these SoulCollage cards. Because these are borrowed images it is paramount that I mention that SoulCollage cards are for personal use only...never to be bartered or sold as original works of art.
I hope that these images and recordings will serve as a welcome invitation for you to try this powerfully healing practice for yourself.
