“…images…etch chosen messages directly to the soul. [They] leave a trace that influences one’s inner qualities, emotions, perceptions, judgment, and behavior.”
—Alan Morinis, “Everyday Holiness”
Judaic SoulCollage® is an adaption of Seena Frost’s powerful multilayered intentional and intuitive process for creating small collages reformatted and grounded in Jewish principles and theoretical frameworks. In this introductory class, participants will learn how to create their own Judaic SoulCollage® cards as creative expressions; how to strategically mine both the process and creations that emerge for the gems of their inner wisdom; and how to connect them to their sparks of Divinity to enlighten their personal and spiritual paths. (Those who study Mussar may find it a creative expansion of their practice. )
When we “welcome the guests” of our various parts—those through which we shine and those in need of some compassion—we initiate healing of ourselves, of one another and, ultimately, of this country and the world. Whereas SoulCollage® places The Source at its theoretical center and is rooted in psychospiritual and relational constructs, Judaic SoulCollage® expands these underpinnings by grounding prompts and thematic content in Jewish tradition, ancient and modern texts, Hebrew language and ethical paths to wholeness, known as Middot.
These classes are intended to offer a mixture of creativity, Judaic education, spiritual introspection and exploration, as well as social interconnection.
Sessions will run 2.25 hours in length, including individual collage-making time and learning about the model, with break time scheduled to coincide with the opportunity for those interested in attending nightly minyan on site. One extended four-hour session will be included to allow for a more profound and meditative experience (and to make up for any snow cancellation).
No prior art experience is necessary. Most supplies are included for on-site sessions. Students will be directed to resources for supplies for home use.
Dates: Tuesdays from 6:15-8:30 p.m. on Nov. 13, 20, 27 and Dec. 4, and Sunday from 1-4 p.m. on Nov. 18.
