The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Croton on Hudson is offering an exciting, spiritual 3-hour workshop called ‘SoulCollage’ on Saturday, October 20, 8:45-12 noon.
What is SoulCollage? SoulCollage® is a process through which you contact your intuition and create an incredible deck of cards which have deep personal meaning and which will help you with life's questions. Following the simple SoulCollage directions, your hands move fragments of cut-out magazine pictures around, fitting them together in a surprising new way and gluing them down on a card. Cards containing the images you select --- or the images that select you --- come straight through your Soul, bypassing the mind. This is a multi-leveled, creative process which anyone can do. All you need is a good pair of scissors, pre-cut mat board cards, and images you can cut out from magazines, greeting cards, personal photos, postcards, catalogues, and calendars. It is wonderful to have other people with whom to share the process. The cards are fun to take to a friend's house, to work with in therapy or support groups, or to keep on your personal altar or coffee table.

Testimonial by Susan Peet, Member of UU Fellowship: “I was part of Susan Antelis’ SoulCollage group at Star Island two summers ago. I went into it with some trepidation because I know Susan and she is both an amazing artist and a deeply spiritual person. Her license plate reads, “SOUL ART!” In contrast, I am not artistic and I’m more curious than spiritual, if that makes sense. What I discovered in the week I spent with Susan in our multigenerational class was that SoulCollage can be as creative, fun and fanciful as you make it and it can also be a powerful spiritual practice that allows you to explore your shadow, your aspirations, your intuition and your faith. For many, it offers a new way to connect with one’s self, much like meditation but using other channels. For me, it is a gift that keeps on giving.”
