Revisiting Creative Subconscious Collage

July 16, 2019  •  Leave a Comment

I started teaching my creative subconscious collage workshop in 2000.

Goodness, that's 19 years ago now.

I developed the workshop based on a book, but really my workshop structure was based on words. Each word, as a prompt of sorts, would/could have it's own meaning. That meaning shifted depending on the person. 

Later, in collage circle I used words as themes for the month and/or as ways to open and close a session. Just like the book I originally resourced, I found a third party source of wisdom to inspire my facilitation. This had me not making things up as I go. This kept the process of sorts grounded.

Speaking of process. It is absolutely uncanny to me how after all this time that a prompt will yield collage work that has profound insight into a particular theme or person.

All I can really add to that thought is what makes this type of collage work so so very interesting and successful over and over is trusting this process. 

Below are 5 collages I just made. 

For the sake of privacy I am shifting the word prompts up a bit. The words below share the same meaning:

loner/alone

lunar/planetary

wise/regal

individual/non-conforming

( that's me!!) 

From the making of these collages other words found me: 

cherished

treasured

holding on

held

blossoming

perched

bright

Those additional words also fit into the theme. 

I think the collages speak for themselves.
