12 Weeks of Collage Therapy
My name is Shelley Klammer. I am a depth-oriented psychotherapist and an Expressive Arts Educator.
I support empathic and creative women, who struggle behind the scenes with anxiety and depression, to heal emotional repression through powerful practices of self-expression.
Like many empathic women, if you are overly nice, you may not yet have developed a strong sense of self. So, if you long to find a way to self-mirror, self-recognize, and self-affirm your inner truth, this is the course for you!
In this program, I offer you a process of spontaneous collage as a way to self-mirror your repressed emotions, desires and dreams through pictures so that you can heal depression and discover who you really are.
Praise for the Video Course
"This course was beyond my expectations!!! That's why I rated it 15 out of 10!!! It's amazing how much of the content each week was relevant to the issues I was dealing with in my life! You know the issues that women in particular face!
And as for the collage process itself, I was very impressed with how the images revealed themselves to me almost instantly with all the pieces to put together! I really found it fascinating!
I looked forward to the video each week. The content is excellent, well presented and visually pleasing, and your presence is very reassuring." ~ H.C.
Emotional Catharsis With Collage
Emotional pain accumulates over time. So, unless you have experienced obvious trauma, you might not recognize that you have unaddressed emotional pain until you start to experience painful emotional, mental, and physical symptoms.
It takes a long-time for emotional pressure to build up inside. Typically, symptoms of underlying emotional pain don’t appear until midlife because we instinctively avoid pain and seek pleasure for as long as possible when we are younger. So, by the time we are in our 40s we are usually quite emotionally accumulated!
Yet, every day, your painful emotions can clear through spontaneously chosen imagery. Emotions love to communicate and through mysterious imagery and poetic words! By intuitively choosing imagery each day, you can reveal your emotional pain to your logical mind and clear it out day by day.
This 12-week video course invites you to create a spontaneous collage every day for 90 days to move your stuck emotions out of your body, and get your creative energy moving. You will receive a one hour video lesson and collage demonstration each week for 12 weeks.
Creation without pre-planning supports you to see emotional patterns that are holding you back, and it also reveals your visionary potentials. Spontaneous collage can reveal growth steps that you will not have been able to conceive of from your logical mind. No previous art experience or special talent is required to create an intuitive collage.
1. You will be encouraged to create 90 intuitive collages in 90 days, and this will give you a lot of deep information about yourself. (I will share how this daily process can be as simple or elaborate as you choose.)
2. The course will be offered via weekly videos recorded from a previous live course. (The weekly videos will motivate you to maintain your collage practice all the way through until the end.)
3. I will teach a 30 minute lesson at the beginning of the class on the weekly theme to support you to get anchored in your intuitive/creative brain. (The weekly lessons are structured on my book Collage for Self-Discovery available only on Kindle.)
4. Next, you are invited to create an intuitive collage with me. (You will be creating your own intuitive collage in every class so be sure to gather your collage supplies.)
5. We will do a short free-writing session after the collaging is finished to support you to gain insights about your collage.
Please Note: This prerecorded video course is available as soon as you pay. You will have lifetime access to the course via my online classroom, and you can also download the course videos onto your own computer if you prefer.
What women are saying...
"I knew straight away that collage was the medium for me: I can respond spontaneously, and 'feel' my way through ready-made images, colors, textures and forms. Your guidance through the weekly lessons has been invaluable - a well developed and thoughtful process of careful nurture and encouragement."
I had always rejected the magazine collage therapy stuff, but I found this course to be the most interesting and freeing thing I've done in many years. The therapeutic stuff was quite cathartic and I am feeling a great deal more spontaneous in my work. So THANK YOU so much for what you do and for offering this class.
"Funny but mysterious too. I love collage for this. Stuff just comes out and no matter how peculiar, it just feels right. I feel so much happier in myself. "My collage time clears stuff out of my head and through a creative channel. Spontaneous, simple, easy, done!"
"I now feel so connected to my creativity. Empowered by developing a way of 'tuning in' every day through your guidance. My collages are 'me' and are taking me where I need to go!"
“One of the things I love the most about all of this is your stories as you present the pages for each week. You speak so openly about your life and with so much heart that it is impossible not to be inspired to let my own understanding come forth…
I realize that I hold the key to my own success and even though it's great to have outside inspiration or praise or encouragement, being inspired from the inside is worth everything."
