Review

"Seena Frost's work with SoulCollage(tm) represents an insightful and original path to the depths...I cannot recommend this too highly." -- Jean Houston Author, A Mythic Life, JumpT ime

"[T]he most original contribution to the battery of tools for deep self-exploration and psychotherapy in years." -- Stanislav Grof, M.D., Ph.D. Author, Psychology of the Future, Adventure of Self-Discovery, Holotropic Mind

A terrific resource for spiritual circles, women’s clubs, study groups, and anyone interested in archetypes or divination. Most highly recommended. -- Fearless Reviews, October, 2001

Fine examples of cards made by regular folks are given … how to handle the language of symbols and dreams. -- Midwest Book Review, July 2001

In this exciting, spiritual “craft” book, readers combine intuition with imagery to make personalized Tarot-like cards… A…handsome and well-presented guide. --Today’s Librarian, December 20, 2001

From the Publisher

SoulCollage, the book, explains the SoulCollage process:
1)The easy steps for making and consulting the cards
2)How to work with the language of symbols, dreams, and archetypes
3)Suggested suits for your deck (personality parts, community, archetypes, energies, dreams)
4)How to set the mood so that even shy people can say what the card is telling them
5)Ways to encourage inner wisdom to bubble up and answer your deepest questions

We are pleased to bring Seena Frost’s deeply satisfying, creative process to others in this wonderful book. We expect the process will find many unexpected uses. SoulCollage has already been used with children, elders, in therapy, in deep spiritual exploration groups, in trainings, and in women’s groups. One writer made a card for each of her characters in the plot of her novel and sets the cards up for inspiration by her computer as she works.

There are more than 200 examples in the book of this process, showing extraordinary cards made by ordinary people. The book contains eight pages of these cards in color. More can be seen on the book’s website. S. Adrian, in a review of SoulCollage in "Fearless Reviews," says: “Numerous examples from custom-made decks show you what these cards can look like. I was so captivated by the images in the book that I wished I could buy a deck of them!” When you start making your own deck you will feel like that about your own cards, only more so. Many cards have a universal appeal because they reach beyond our individual stories and into the deep well where all of us share the same water of Spirit.

This is a multi-leveled, creative process which anyone can do — All you need is a good pair of scissors, pre-cut matboard cards (also available in packs of a dozen cards), glue, 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 coffee table. There are many examples in the book about how to use the cards in groups.

Format: Paperback
This entire book has a single great idea--the use of collage as a potent personal growth tool.
The author describes a college process leading up to the creation of a personal deck of cards consisting of four categories:
--Committee (aspects of the self, such as Inner Critic, Good Little Girl, Drama Queen, you name it
--Community (persons of significance in the life of the persons making the card, whether personal friends or persons of inspiration from history)
--Companion (totemic figures representing chakra forces); and
--Council (archetypical figures such as Death, the Warrior, and other larger forces in one's life).
The process of collecting images to assemble the cards, and working with the cards after making with them in a divinatory or reflective way, provides a way to access one's own inner wisdom while bypassing the verbal part of one's mind. Because the cards are assembled from images that have personal resonance, the deck can have an impact that no purchased tarot cards ever could.
A very interesting way of making powerful personal art of especial interest to those who have no technical training in art.

I had to have this book. I have checked it out from the library, until I can check it out no more! Making soulcards is something that I would use with myself, my children, as well as my spiritual direction clients. It offers a way to reveal one's self that no other divination tool, spiritual tool, or self discovery tool can match. It is a lifelong process that is sure to be of benefit to anyone that tries it. Using the artistic/visual technique of soul cards, it bypasses the rational left brain to get at what we are really thinking, feeling, intuiting, etc.. We can't choke the flow with this tool! It is a meditative, creative process that can be done in groups or alone. I could see myself using this with a women's empowerment group, spiritual group, or for children. Kids often don't have all the words to say how they feel, and this is a way for them to express it, and have those that care for them "get it." Love the book, love the process! Treat yourself and get this book!

There are some things in life for which nothing else can substitute. This book, this SoulCollage® process, is one of them.

I spontaneously discovered SoulCollage® in early 2004, when I stumbled upon an introductory workshop (a great way to start, if you can access a group). Within months, SoulCollage® became invaluable in helping me process life events that were unexpected and challenging, for which no other form of support proved adequate. The beauty of expressing myself through the images of others, then the writing evoked by my collage of images, started the process of "retrieving" all the parts of myself that I had buried, given away, repressed, or allowed to be suppressed throughout my life.

Seena Frost is a tender, lovely woman, both as an individual and the creator of this powerful, popular SoulCollage® process. Worldwide support exists, both in person and online. Nervous about the process? I've simplified it online at [...].

I found this while searching for art books and discovered it was all about my current passion-collage(!) plus making a personal card deck, similar to Tarot-a long time interest of mine. I'd sensed my collages had hidden meanings, so I knew immediately the book was meant for me! I've now owned the book for several years and have created a wonderful card deck with personal meaning. I often use it to help answer life's questions. Through SoulCollage I've met new friends and also assisted old friends in making their own cards. It has been a fantastic and inspiring time of life for me, combining my love of art, creating new images with scissors and glue, and understanding my own spiritual world.

When I found the SoulCollage book (or perhaps I should say when it found me!) a thrill went up my spine. Each page seemed like an adventure into a familiar yet undiscovered land of the Soul. Seena presents a captivating, easy to read and understand process for finding the lost voices of our deepest wisdom.

I have used a therapeutic process with my psychotherapy clients to find their inner wisdom, but this fool proof method gives a physical reality - the SoulCollage card - to the often-muffled voices that live within everyone.

When I introduce the SoulCollage process to clients, and they consult the card, their answers seem to come more quickly. Resolution to what seemed unsolvable dilemmas come forward. Aliveness returns. I have used my own cards with similar results. I am looking forward to trying it with my group-therapy clients.

Her book inspires, awakens and thrills me. I recommend it to any one who wants to get to know themselves more deeply, and at the same time connect with others. Because ultimately, while her method helps us reach inside, it also helps us reach out to our loved ones, and the wider community of Souls and archetypes to which we are intimately linked.

I highly recommend this book to therapists, artists, spiritual seekers and anyone who wants to enjoy the thrill of insight and awakening. It is on my top 10 lifetime favorite books, along with "Loving What Is" by Byron Katie. Simple tools anyone can use. Enjoy this wonderful book!
