   SoulCollage Facilitator Training Banner-sm


SoulCollage® is a creative and satisfying collage process. You make your own deck of cards—each collage card representing one aspect of your personality or Soul. Use the cards intuitively to answer life's questions and participate in self-discovery. Joyfully deepen your understanding of the relationships between your personality parts, you and your family/community/world, and you and your dreams, symbols, and Spirit. Founder Seena B. Frost's book, SoulCollage® Evolving, describes how to make and use the SoulCollage® cards individually and in groups.

Have you been using SoulCollage® yourself? Are you enthusiastic about it? The SoulCollage® Facilitator Training is for anyone who wants to facilitate SoulCollage® for self-discovery in groups and with individuals. There are no degrees or academic requirements, but please read the prerequisites we want you to complete before you come to a Training.

The Facilitator Training is different from a SoulCollage® retreat or workshop, even though in both settings a participant may experience deep personal process. The primary focus of a SoulCollage® Training is to teach participants to be SoulCollage® Facilitators. We expect that you are taking the Training because SoulCollage® has been meaningful to you in your own process, and you are eager to share SoulCollage®, even if you are not clear just how you will be doing that. Many people become clear about how they will use SoulCollage®during or even after a Training.

SoulCollage® has proven to be a valuable therapeutic tool when used by therapists and professionals as a part of their practice. CLICK HERE for more information about how the Training can enable you to add this powerful therapeutic process to your practice.

After participating and completing all sessions of the Training, participants receive a certificate of completion conferring the right to use the name "SoulCollage®" in the title of their groups or workshops and to call themselves "SoulCollage® Facilitators." There is no SoulCollage® "Certification." It is not possible in one weekend "certify" anyone. Certification trainings are traditionally a much longer educational and apprenticing process. What we do offer is continuing connection with the SoulCollage® Facilitator Community worldwide which provides networking and education after the Training through online courses, conferences, retreats, web resources, online and regional groups, and in some cases, individual support through correspondence.





  • Are interested in forming a new SoulCollage® group
  • Want to introduce SoulCollage® in an already established group (such as a church group, woman’s group, senior group, hospice network, educational class…etc.)
  • Want to use this simple art technique in connection with other kinds of groups, classes, or workshops
  • ​Are a therapist or art therapist who is attracted to learning more about how to use SoulCollage® for healing, therapeutic purposes
  • Are a minister/spiritual guide of any faith who wants to facilitate SoulCollage® in your ministry and use it to build community     
  • Are a teacher, artist, administrator, workshop facilitator, mother-daughter team leader, social worker, Scout leader, nurse, dream group leader, or anyone interested in personal growth or the healing arts

Participants make cards, share cards, and use their own processes as teaching examples for the group in learning how to facilitate SoulCollage® work. We learn how to do “readings” which use our own intuition to deepen self-knowledge. We learn creative applications and how to adapt the process to different populations. We work towards constructing a plan that fits participants intended uses of the technique. Training participants network with each other and share how to adapt the SoulCollage® process to their clientele.

No degree or other credentialing is needed to register for this course other than enthusiasm for the process and its use in one’s own life. These are the chief criteria for participation in the training.

Over the years, we have heard many reasons why people have been drawn to train as a SoulCollage® Facilitator.  Not everyone who attends a Training always fits neatly into one of these categories, but in addition to enthusiasm for one’s personal experience of making and using SoulCollage® cards, these are the reasons that are most often shared with us:
  • Non-artists struggling to express their longing to be creative appreciate that there is no wrong or right way in SoulCollage®; the process is simple, fun and profound. Anyone able to manage scissors and glue can create beautiful cards and enjoy sharing them with others.
  • Therapists, counselors, nurses and other helping professionals find a creative way to work with their clients that goes beyond words and concepts, one that provides direct experiential access to intuition, insight and transformation.
  • Healers and people seeking to heal see in SoulCollage® a gentle yet deep self-care method that reveals their inner guidance by exploring and “becoming” images and by using their cards to do SoulCollage® readings.
  • Artists interested in bringing a new dimension to their art find a spiritually-infused process that they can share with others, a creative threshold to surprising revelations, greater self-understanding and the enriching acceptance of the light and shadow at play in our lives.
  • Anyone who values participating in and building learning communities based on mutual respect, support, and a commitment to care for self and others are drawn to learn and share SoulCollage®.
  • People looking for a way to give back to their communities, families, friends, children, church groups, women’s/men’s groups, hospices and other organizations see SoulCollage® as an opportunity to support the growth and well-being of others and themselves.
  • Individuals seeking spiritual renewal and a creative way to access their deeper guidance and wisdom.
