Collage isn't just about making pretty art. It can also be deep access to the genius of your own intuition.
Collage one of my favorite tools for getting new information. Instead of forcing preconceived visions onto the page, you can enter a dialogue with synchronicity. Like a journey of active imagination or a modern day shamanic visioning - the flip snip paste helps you enter a state of curiosity and epiphany.
This style of oracle collage is meant to be quick, easy and powerful. Skip the trite words and shellacked images and instead engage the muse of collage in the real questions of your life.
I created this seven part series SYNTHESIS to highlight some of my favorite tips and tricks for applying Intentional Creativity tm to the collaging process.
You'll need a stack of magazines for these 15 minute sessions. We'll claim your context, define the conversation, develop an action plan, then focus, decode and synthesis what has emerged. I'm going to share the way I use collage games to help you enter the flow state as well as some of my specific collage tips.
"I love collage and have been experiencing it's magic for years. Your tips and tricks are incredibly refreshing. "
"This is like a little bon bon with a juicy cherry for a Sunday afternoon! Yum!"
"Truly this course was a bright spot for me to focus on and process during a big life shift. Easy to follow. Very enjoyable to do. "
"Jena, you teach shamanic collage, or transdimensional collage, in my experience. The words and images we play with from magazines and wherever, become ALIVE in your classes... My artjournals feel sacred to me. So much from beyond my small self shows up on/in my pages — and off."
"Synthesis has been deeply informative. I have done the lessons eagerly (and sometimes warily) while feeling the transformation. My gaze has been moved from present to past, from inner and outer landscapes, and then from past to present. Jena has guided the use of both image and word and focused on the gaze itself. The synthesis that I feel at the end of this class is in vision, direction and focus. I have been deeply transformed from this on-line class and am deeply grateful.💐"
