Register Here! Collaging For Self-discovery Online Accountability Group

January 21, 2018

Do you love cutting up magazines and making vision boards?

Perhaps, like me, you are already a collage journaler.

Have you longed to make time for these activities but never seem to consistently prioritize the time?

Well, here is your chance to join a group of supportive, like-minded people facilitated by an experienced online leader.

The premise of the group is simple: we collage as much as we like and then we share a bit of the results with each other. This is not a therapy group; it’s a self-expression group.

If you are just getting started, you can share your beginning steps and take advantage of tips and tricks from more experienced collagers. Inside the group, I have a list of basic materials and a video that outlines the process of collage journaling, which I refer to as Joy Journaling.

We are living in chaotic times and we cannot solve the problems of the world at the level of the problems. Having a collage practice can serve as a centering meditation, bringing you the peace, serenity and courage to express yourself on a daily basis.

If you have been craving more creative self-expression in your life, but you have never collaged before, no problem! You do not need to have any collage experience to join this group.

If you are looking for a reprieve from the latest headlines and a safe, inspiring place online to glean creative inspiration, then this is the group for you. Our intention is to band together to create a positive, supportive environment that supports our creative self-expression one month at a time.

Go ahead register for a trial month now. The cost for your first month in the group is $30. After your first month, you can pay $30 by the month, or pay in advance for as little as $15/month (see payment options below).

If you are looking for a creative sanctuary in a chaotic world, I hope you will join us and share your collage practice with like-minded others.

No preparation is necessary. Just bring yourself and your enthusiasm. I’ll see you on the inside, where I check in daily.

  • I respond to questions and rally members to share their insights, as well.

  • I host an informal yet inspirational environment that encourages you to collage for the sake of self-discovery and the enjoyment of doing it.
