I found it was easy to construct a collage. It was almost effortless and something meaningful happened!
Great reasons to check out collage parties:
⊙You are curious about the process
⊙You want to be creative in a social setting
Theres no pressure to be “artistic”– you just need to be able to use scissors and a glue stick!
⊙You love to create but have just needed to find some time to put your ideas together
⊙You want to focus. Collage is a perfect way to do inner work– it’s a form of art therapy.
⊙You are looking for a great way to explore your goals more deeply.
Collage is a way of slipping past the censor and accessing the unconscious.
What do people love most about the experience?
⊙the adventure of being with other women and enjoying the experience together
I enjoyed the camaraderie of fellow seekers, and the stories we all told even though we were relative strangers. By being her lovely self, Joy created safety and a sense of fun, play, and exploration which was super helpful for me; I was able to relax and get the most out of the collage process.
And of course, I enjoyed seeing the collage take shape, finishing it, and then working through the reflection process. It was a surprising result.
I liked being creative and socializing. Plus, I enjoyed seeing how well planned out it was.
What is the best thing you get out of coming to a collage party?
⊙A chance to really hone in on your goals.
⊙The excitement of seeing seemingly random pictures lay out a theme
“There’s a change comin’.
It involves Brussels sprouts.”
-Susanne Leahy, analyzing her collage
⊙ The collage itself!
I’ve hung it up in my work room next to where I do a lot of writing, and it inspires me and intrigues me every day.
A finished product that reminds me that I “can do” and that my hopes have not yet been snuffed out!
It will surprise you how easy the collage making process is!
I was surprised how many decisions I made so effortlessly. I usually belabor and second guess small and large decisions!
When it came time to glue the clippings into a collage, my hands flew around, and I made decisions that I wasn’t expecting. When it was done, I stood back and marveled. The picture I’d created spoke to me in the poetry of images and contrasts I hadn’t anticipated.
I hold collage parties often (almost every month) The goal setting parties I hold quarterly so you can come and boost your goals, meet new people, and feel accountable to yourself.
Collage is great because you can do them all the time and each one will be totally different. You’re thinking of something different, looking at different magazines, and putting your images together in different ways.
A regular habit of creating fulfills a need to express what’s beautiful and “right.”
You can also email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know you’re interested in attending one.
I even hold one-on-one parties which are like mini (and fun) therapy sessions so email me if you would like to schedule one!
I loved meeting new people and laughing so much. It helped me focus on the positive aspects of my life, and I really like that my goals are literally in my face (on my fridge) every day as a reminder.
