  • SoulCollage® Workshops

    Create small collages that reveal what your soul wants you to know!

     

     

    SoulCollage® is a creative process that uses collage-making and intuitive writing as transformational tools for self-discovery, personal development, and spiritual growth.

     

    Based on Jungian psychology, SoulCollage® helps us access the parts of ourselves that we value and want to work on, as well as revealing the more difficult parts that we often overlook.

     

    People are amazed at the beauty of their cards and their ability to access their inner wisdom using images.

     

    Workshops take place at studio Moka Design in Côte Saint-Luc, or at your venue. All supplies are provided.

     

    No experience needed. Yes, YOU are naturally creative!

     

  • Write Now Workshops

    Discover and appreciate the richness of your life!

     

     

    Write Now workshops are about writing Micro-Memoirs (very short stories or vignettes) about one’s life experiences, sharing those stories, and enjoying hearing the stories of others.

     

    We may start by having you recall childhood memories – after all, they must be memorable if you remember them! Or Joyce may give story prompts, such as “write a letter to someone who had a profound effect on your life."

     

    Join us and learn how to get the stories out of your head and onto paper – letting them flow in any way that is comfortable for you.

     

    Workshops take place at studio Moka Design in Côte Saint-Luc, or at your venue. All supplies are provided.

  • Art Journaling Workshops

    Mindfulness, Self-Discovery, Creative Expression

     

     

    Art Journaling is a fun and relaxing creative practice that combines mindfulness, self-discovery, and artistic expression – in a personal journal that you create.

    You will learn to use collage, drawing, multi-media, intuitive writing, and much more, as you fearlessly conquer the blank page, gain insight into the deeper meaning of your art and writing, and uncover YOUR unique style of journaling.

    Workshops take place at studio Moka Design in Côte Saint-Luc, or at your venue. All supplies are provided.

  • Vision Board Workshops

    Manifest your dreams and desires!

     

     

    Vision boards are a simple, yet extremely powerful type of collage that includes pictures, power words, and quotes – to visually represent what you want to actualize and make come true in your life.

    All supplies and materials are provided, but feel free to bring favourite photos (or colour copies) of yourself, family, friends, pets... to include on your vision board.

  • What They're Saying

    "SoulCollage is my gift to myself, a time to step back, to be silent, to reach deep within myself​."

    Just completed the last class of the SoulCollage Workshop and it has been a wonderful experience... a real eye-opener. I really appreciated Joyce's gentle guidance into this intuitive way of accessing one's inner landscape, and providing a window into my true deep-seated expression vis-a-vis so many important areas of my life. As I look over my six soul collage boards, particular themes emerged, and I can see where I have come from, where I am now, and where I would like to go... so thank you Joyce for this valuable tool! – E.C.

     

    Joyce's SoulCollage workshop was an amazing experience, enriching, enlightening and even fun! Under Joyce's gentle guidance, I felt comfortable creating collages that gave me surprising and helpful insights. For someone who thought she had no "artistic" ability, I'm thrilled with my collages. I can't wait until her next series begins – I'm hooked! – Ellen

     

    As I came back home today – I looked at my card. It reminded me of a trip in the Himalayas few years ago – a pilgrimage to Mount-Kailash, Tibet. I remember the exhilaration and joy I felt on top of that mountain – air was so rarified (+6,000 meters in altitude) and how BREATH had been my refuge and still is… so I renamed my card PRANA … and as the card suggests I will put more emphasis on breathwork (called pranayamas) in my own practice and teaching. I'm always amazed to see what guidance SoulCollage has to reveal to us. – Merci, Louise

     

    It is Sunday morning a day of quiet and rest. I awake and I am happy, my heart smiles as I prepare for my SoulCollage session with Joyce and the others who will have chosen to come. Sunday morning seems the perfect day to do SoulCollage because everything comes together to facilitate this time of reflection, even the city is enveloped in a Sabbath hush.

     

    When I first heard the words “soul collage” I wondered what this could mean. “Soul” a word rarely used except when referring to our deepest self, the place where God dwells within us. After having participated in several sessions I now know what it means for me. SoulCollage is my gift to myself, a time to step back, to be silent, to reach deep within myself so I can hear what God is trying to say to me. I get so caught up in the daily fragmentation of life that I often lose sight of the bigger picture. When this happens I slowly but surely meander away from my true core. SoulCollage provides me with the tools I need to bring myself back to my center, where I can once again connect with the wholeness of my person, evaluate the state of my relationships and literally “touch” the stardust of my life.

     

    If someone were to ask me what word immediately comes to mind when you hear the words soul collage, I would have to say gentleness. Everything about the session is marked by gentleness, the surroundings, the participants, the process, our facilitator. A wonderful added dimension is what happens within the group at every session. Although each one quietly works alone on her collage there is a special bonding that occurs and a unique form of friendship is created. I can’t put into words. ... it has to be experienced!!! – Pat

     

    Last year I had the privilege of participating in one of Joyce’s Soul Collage workshops. This was the first time that I have done anything of this nature. I have never considered myself to be a very artistic person and don’t spend any of my time in creative pursuits. The workshop allowed me to take a little time to do something creative without any pressure concerning the final product. In fact it is quite the opposite: the process of making the Soul Collage is what’s important and the finished collage is the incidental culmination of that process. I am a dedicated Yoga practitioner and the larger part of my Yoga practice has to so with self-reflection. What I found most interesting with my Soul Collage experience is finding a similar opportunity to learn about myself. After examining my completed collage it became clear that my choices about what to cut-out and what to include in my collage speaks volumes about myself. If we extend this logic, we can see that in life all our choices say something about ourselves and contribute to the “collage” that we live. – Sacha

     

    SoulCollage® has made a huge difference in how I see my body and how I approach eating. I have been struggling with body image all of my life, and the only thing that helped me release the struggle was to recognize and name the inner voices that were getting in my way, and those that were supportive and en-light-ening.
