There is something fresh and creative that is trying to emerge into our consciousness each day. The mind sometimes cannot get out of its daily loop enough to be able to see the hidden parts of self that are longing to express and integrate into our conscious awareness. Spontaneous collage can bypass our censoring mind to reveal deeper thoughts and emotions.

 

A good way to start spontaneous collage is to try creating a Daily Ten Minute Collage. A few images chosen each day to meditate on can invite surprising insights.

 

 

Benefits of Spontaneous Collage:

 

1. Minimal art materials needed - just a stack of magazines, card stock for backing, scissors (or your hands) and glue stick.

 

2. No art or drawing skills necessary.

 

3. Employs intuitive choice-making.

 

4. Expresses and reveals subconscious and unconscious emotional and thinking patterns.
