Intuitive Collage for Self Discovery
Creating an Intuitive Collage offers us an incredible tool to express our inner world. We each have Parts of Self that felt wounded by Parents or other authority figures in our childhood. These Parts may have gone in to hiding, become lost or forgotten or you felt you had to deny or reject so you could gain approval from those around you back then.
Tearing & cutting out from craft papers, old calendars, wrapping papers, greeting cards... glueing then painting, is a deeply relaxing & meditative process resulting in a beautiful Mixed Media Collage which 'speaks' of you and your Inner World. Whichever images you choose to add to your Collage will speak deeply of who you are, they will 'tell your stories' for you, they will speak from deep within you.
Even if you haven't created since schooldays you Can particpate with ease and enjoyment.
Here is what Tracy said:
'I enjoy all of Kassi’s courses and this was no exception. My intuitive collage unfolded very naturally through a very well guided set of prompts and questions and demonstration videos. I found myself being totally committed to the production of my collage and to the messages that arose as a result of delving deep into the layers of images and colours. I couldn’t stay away from my collage too long and each time I re-connected with it, I became totally absorbed in the process.' It was a very healing experience. I chose Kassi's support in the interpretation of my collage too, especially where areas of the collage had trouble speaking to me. Kassi uses a variety of strategies which enable you to interpret your visual work in a non-threatening, non-judgemental way that supports your emotional, mental, spiritual and physical wellbeing. Both laughter and crying (the latter I am particularly working on) are allowed to be welcomed. I am always interested in Kassi’s courses as I know that I will further deepen my awareness of my sense of self and grow in ways that not only I will benefit from but also the people and the world with whom I engage with will too.'
Art-making in itself is an incredible healing Medicine. Making art allows us to know ourselves more fully.
What You Will Get From This Course:
You will gain so much from this experience I don't know where to begin in sharing all of this with you!
There is no rush, you are given a whole year to access the course material on demand so you can create in your own time.
Many of you tell me you feel as if I am there with you, my Presence is felt through my videos as if we are together.
One of the most consistent pieces of feedback I receive from you is how life changing and transformational my courses are. Participants come back time and again to me, purchasing my ecourses and wanting 'to do them all'. This makes me feel very happy and content and reassures me that what I offer is genuinely a wonderful tool and gift, helping others to live more happily, feel great, know themselves more fully and this leads to a greater connection with oneself.
You are likely to love the process and make more than one Intuitive Collage, sometimes working in art journals, page after page of amazing collage, telling stories of your life experience. You can make as many as you wish. Think of all that enjoyment, satisfaction and personal development.
My videos are relaxing, calm, good quality and very Human. I don't play 'The Expert'. I am a gentle Facilitator, a warm Guide, leading you through my process which will enable you to create something absolutely unique to your life.
When you look into your art, it's like looking in a mirror. You see yourself. Your life. Your patterns and habits, some of which may not serve you well. There will be opportunity to make change if you wish.
You will learn about using craft papers, gel medium, how to gather materials and work intuitively. You can include buttons, sparkling gems, ribbons, wording... anything you love can be incorporated into your Collage, as this will be more Congruent and 'speak' more powerfully of who you are.
There is a choice to engage with my plentiful Personal Development Prompts for those who wish to delve and reflect upon their creative process, understanding what is emerging from their Art.
There is absolutely no pressure nor necessity to engage with my Prompts unless you wish to.
Those who love to delve and explore their personality traits and consider, 'do I like this way of being, shall I make change?' can do so. Many share with me my Personal Development courses have offered so much more than personal counselling ever did.
We notice our patterns of behaviour through this kind of art work and we can be curious about how things show up again and again in our lives. This for me is so insightful, so eye opening, exciting and full of potential.
Art will help you to live your life more fully, in more satisfying ways. You will learn so much about who you really are and develop a deep self understanding and acceptance of self that reduces anxiety and stress and lifts mood.
If you wish to include me in your exploration process, you could send me an email initially for free and I will respond to you for free. This will help you decide if you wish to add the 'Creative Process Conversations' at some point during your experience. We can connect via Zoom's secure chat facility, a wonderful online way of 'meeting' where we can chat instantly, typing back and forth to each other or email each other.
You can join my facebook group or email me you will get more of a sense of who I am and how I connect with others.
Once you have signed up you will receive details of my free facebook group. We are a small, compassionate, warm group where you can share your creations and be responded to.
Some participants write in their journals, documenting their precious journey within. Some love to explore with me personally, one to one, and some share in my free facebook group.
Lots of choice and freedom to do this the way that feels 'right' for You.
You will learn about your Inner Critic who has a tendency to meddle and criticise, especially when we try something new, which is why I encourage Intuition as a way of working.
I am rarely far away. If you have a question you can email me or ask me in the facebook group. I am very warm and approachable, helpful and responsive.
I am honoured to be a Witness of your creative process.
I bring all of my experience over the last 20 years to my work here with you. I have been a Counsellor and Self Care Coach during this time, a Trainer & Group Facilitator in higher education, a Mentor to Counsellors but most of all I bring my way of being Human.
The Relationship you have with yourself is vitally important. How we speak to ourselves on the inside says so much about how we live our lives and connect with others in the World.
When we connect to ourselves with love, compassion, kindness, understanding, empathy, creativity, flexibility, acceptance then we will offer this to others. This has a wonderful butterfly effect and impacts the world in a bigger way.
As well as a beautiful keepsake, there is the satisfaction, joy & healing we experience as we create, reaching a peaceful, meditative flow-state, offering healing for our Mind, Body & Soul from the stresses & strains of everyday living.
Intuitive Collage requires no skills and only a few materials. It's a beautiful process, tearing, cutting, glueing, working Intuitively, trusting our fingers to lead the way which you will find out about as you watch my videos.
Selecting images from magazines, photocopies of photos of your Self at any age and loved ones, craft papers, buttons, birds, butterflies & hearts, ribbons ...any craft materials you have to hand that simply appeal to you in the moment is all you need.
Trusting our Intuition develops our self esteem & confidence. We feel happier, more satisfied, less stressed. We develop Self Acceptance of Being in our own skin which is profoundly healing & life changing in itself.
