The difficulties and stress we have been experiencing this past year have taken a toll on us all. This year is one for the record books! Many of us were already struggling to cultivate self-care, make time for self-reflection, process life's changes and transitions, feel more connected to one's self and others, even BEFORE the onset of pandemic.
AND even with the heightening of these experiences as a result of our living through the era of COVID, we can still take powerful steps towards self-comfort and healing.

WHAT is SoulCollage®?
SoulCollage® is a creative art process that is both powerful and fun! Using images from magazines, you will create small collages that form a visual journal, each card representing a different aspect of yourself. No art experience is necessary!
ABOUT OUR GROUP:
We've been collaging online together since March 2020 as a way to cope with the stress of the pandemic. Join us as we listen to the Beatles and work virtually along side each other discovering ourselves and each other through images and glue.
Each group has a loose theme, which is communicated prior so participants can prepare the materials they wish to use. Each participant will have to supply themselves with their own collage materials - pictures, cutting tools and a backing - some of which are available on Amazon or can be made from reused materials like cereal box cardboard, etc...(Please speak with the facilitator if you have questions or need guidance around collecting and buying materials for SoulCollage®)
SoulCollage® Together Online is a process oriented group. It is not necessary to finish your card during our card-making session. The focus of this group is on the actual PROCESS of card-making and doing so in the community of others.
This group is facilitated by Robin Friedman, LCSW-R, a Certified Gestalt Therapist and a Certified SoulCollage® Facilitator. Currently, Robin maintains a private practice in NYC and White Plains where she works with individuals overcoming grief and traumatic loss. She particularly loves to facilitate SoulCollage® as it combines her appreciation for creative expression with her commitment to helping others cultivate their mindfulness skills. Robin believes that SoulCollage® is a unique and powerful way to find internal wisdom and cultivate inner relationships with one's self.
