If you have been enjoying SoulCollage® for yourself, then you understand the power of this process.
You know . . .
That each card depicts a certain aspect of the self
That you are one person with many parts
That this is an empowering tool for self-understanding
That the true magic of SoulCollage® happens when we read our cards
Do you feel called to share this experience, this powerful tool with others? The SoulCollage® Facilitator Training is for anyone who wants to facilitate SoulCollage® for self-discovery in groups and with individuals. You don’t need any qualifications to take the SoulCollage® Training, but you must have a desire to share this experience and you must complete the prerequisites listed below. SoulCollage® complements many other healing and self-understanding modalities.
The primary focus of a SoulCollage® Training is to teach participants to be SoulCollage® Facilitators, so this is not a SoulCollage® retreat or workshop, even though in both settings a participant may experience deep personal process. 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®. There will be time for making cards.
After completing 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."
This four-day SoulCollage® Facilitator Training is required in order to call yourself a SoulCollage® Facilitator and your groups SoulCollage® Groups. These requirement must be completed before attending a Training:

There are two "Fundamentals of SoulCollage®" courses to choose from online:
In signing up for this Training, you agree to complete these prerequisites. Your Trainer and your Training colleagues will appreciate that you have completed the basics before you come. On the rare occasions when people come unprepared, they get less out of the experience.
