SoulCollage® Workshops

SoulCollage® is a process in which you collage found imagery to make a deck of cards with personal meaning and significance. You can use them to access your intuition, serve as journaling prompts, or just to honor the voices within you. I fell in love with the process because it combined my interests in art, journaling, and spirituality. I run workshops on introductory SoulCollage®, special sessions on each of the suits, and longer workshops geared to more intense card-making and sharing. […]

If you’ve been to Life Alive in Lowell, you’ll know they put this sauce on their Goddess bowls that I swear is liquid crack. It’s so good, it could make shoe leather taste good. Maybe.

Anyway, I scoured the internet for a recipe, and recreated the Goddess Bowl at home, with the “Special Sauce.” Here it is:

2 garlic cloves, chopped
2 inches of fresh peeled ginger, chopped
1 tablespoon of Tamari Soy Sauce
2 tablespoons of lemon juice (about 1/2 a lemon)
2 tablespoons of Tahini
1 tablespoon of olive oil
2 tablespoons of water

I cut up some carrots, beets, and broccoli florets, and sauteed some tofu in tamari, then put all of this over some brown rice and drizzled the sauce over it. Oh my gosh, it was good. Without it, it’s just, well, a bunch of veggies in a bowl.

So this made me think — because I’m a writer; I love a good metaphor, and I need a blog post — what other areas in my life could be made better by a “special sauce?” What if I brought something just a little bit special to what otherwise might be underwhelming and ordinary?

And even better — what if it doesn’t even have to be that hard? What if we already do this, but just don’t realize it? What if you entered every interaction with the knowledge that you have magic to bring, you really do? What would happen?

Try it.
