SoulCollage is a creative and transformative process, in which you create your own personal deck of collaged cards, using your intuition and imagination. Seena Frost, a Marriage and Family Therapist in Watsonville, CA developed it by combining her passions for spirituality, psychotherapy, and creativity.
