Marian Cancer Care at Marian Regional Medical Center and the Mission Hope Cancer Center invite you to join in on a therapeutic art class that offers a visual way to discover your feelings and inner wisdom. Originated by Seena B. Frost, SoulCollage leads participants in a collage process that promotes healing and self-discovery. This creative outlet has been used successfully in the treatment of grief, trauma, recovery, respite and renewal, and all of life’s major transitions.

Instructor Terrie Miley comes to us with many of the tools and experiences she has learned on her journey back to wholeness. She began her own path toward healing in 1999 when she faced a life-threatening illness. One of the many practices she has been trained in is the technique of SoulCollage, which is the process of using art and imagery as a form of self expression. This is done by moving fragments of cut-out magazine pictures and/or photographs around, fitting them together in a surprising new way. The finished collages not only articulate what we cannot, but also allow us to get in touch with our feelings and to give voice to that which is in our soul.

Please join us to experience for yourself this innovative, creative process of healing and self-discovery. Please see below for the various dates, times and location:

Date: July 18th, August 1st, 15th, 19th
