Exploring Shadow in the Light of SoulCollage®

3 Week Online Workshop
with Anne Marie Bennett


I am the one who courageously dives into my own fiery depths.

Have you made some darker SoulCollage® cards but are afraid to work with them?

Are you fearful of making cards that might show some  shadowed parts of your personality?

Do you ever wonder why we bother making and conversing with these shadowed parts of ourselves?

Are there beautiful parts of yourself that you’ve locked away because once upon a time someone told you they weren’t acceptable?

Wondering what the big deal is about all this “shadow work?”

If you answered yes to any of these questions,
our next online Zoom series
Exploring Shadow in the Light of SoulCollage®

might be
just what you need to take your SoulCollage® work
to a beautiful new depth.

Why Delve Into Shadow Work?

I am the one who rests in the beautiful balance of light and dark.

SoulCollage® is like going on a treasure hunt and finding gold.
~ Madonna Moon on KaleidoSoul Yahoo Group, Feb. 2012

It certainly would be okay if we built our SoulCollage® work and decks around our brighter selves, the happier bits of our personalities.  There is much to be gained from recognizing and honoring these inner parts that bring us so much joy and harmony.

It’s a bit like going on a marvelous treasure hunt. What will we find next?

If we keep our hunting of treasure on the surface of our lives, we will only find so many jewels.  However, if we summon up our Caretaker of Courage, and go into some darker places on our treasure hunting journey, we are likely to stumble upon pure, unadulterated, valuable GOLD.

Such is our journey as we seek to explore shadow.  Within the light of SoulCollage®, we can safely investigate that which lies buried in the deepest recesses of our being, and we can invite these parts of ourselves (a little at a time) up into the light of our consciousness.

We do this slowly, mindfully, and always with the intention of self-kindness.

Here are some shadowed parts that we might discover on such a journey:

* the inner critic
* the perfectionist
* the shy one
* the one who is afraid
* the angry one
* the judge
* the wounded child

Also, on this treasure hunt, we might discover inner parts we’ve buried who are aspects of our brighter selves.  These are all part of what Jung called the Golden Shadow:

I am the sexual, sensual goddess of passion.

* the inner writer
* the one who loves to perform but was never allowed to
* the dancer
* the comedian
* the sexy woman
* the creative one
* the playful child

All of these parts from both lists have so much to offer us. The gifts they have can be brought to light as we do this inner work, with the light of SoulCollage® and the safety of community surrounding us.

What will happen when we spend some compassionate, intentional time treasure hunting for our own inner gold among the shadows?  What will happen, indeed!

NOTE: This series will be focusing on personal shadow.
We will not be delving into community shadow, world shadow or archetypal shadow.

A Shadow part’s grip on our Soul begins to loosen the moment we let our consciousness shine on it; it loosens more as we dialogue with it. 
~ Seena Frost

What You’ll Receive:

  • Participation in three 2-hour Zoom workshops with Anne Marie Bennett, SoulCollage® Facilitator, Trainer, and creator of KaleidoSoul.com, who has been exploring her own shadows in the light of SoulCollage® since 2005.
  • Access to the video recordings of all 3 workshops, in case you can’t join us in person.
  • All of the videos and handouts are forever-available to you 24/7 on a password-protected part of the KaleidoSoul website.
  • Permission to participate or NOT participate in the live classes. If you Zoom in, you can just listen/watch OR you can make comments, ask questions and participate in small group breakout sessions.  OR…  you can choose to watch the recordings later and do the journaling activities without the presence and support of the group.
  • During each Zoom, Anne Marie will introduce several ways of working with our personal shadowed parts, and we’ll be doing this work together She will also share many examples of her own shadow work with the SoulCollage® process over the years.
  • Negative Nancy

    During our Zoom workshops, we’ll spend a lot of our time actually DOING INNER WORK WITH OUR SHADOW PARTS. That’s right, we’re not going to simply TALK about shadow, we’re  going to actually DO some of the work!  So be sure to bring a well-loved journal and comfortable pen with you.  Note that any sharing of your inner work is always OPTIONAL and a matter of choice. It is perfectly okay to Zoom in, do the inner work on your own, and never speak a word!

  • Journaling activities, guided imagery meditations and the SoulCollage® process will form the basis of all of our inner explorations in these workshops.
  • Handouts and resources for each of the 3 workshops.
  • A private Facebook page to post any cards or writings that you create around your shadowed parts in between classes (optional participation).
  • Generous email support from Anne Marie Bennett who will be available during the time in between workshos to answer questions and provide assistance as necessary.


Be one of the first TEN to register, and you’ll receive a FREE copy of The Dark Side of the Light Chasers, by Debbie Ford. This fascinating book on personal shadow is one of Anne Marie’s favorite resources for her own shadow work. We’ll ship it to you absolutely free also (even if you live in Australia!)

Here’s What People Are Saying
About Anne Marie’s Classes

Ethel, My Inner Critic

I very much enjoyed the 3 classes even though I didn’t get to be on any of the “live” calls.  I love your clarity and gentle authority – as someone who’s done quite a bit of teaching myself, it is a luxury and a pleasure to be so well guided and nurtured.
~ Linda, U.K.


What a great class! My mystery card is now a very potent messenger.  I so appreciate all the years of detailed study and work you must have put into this.  Out of 5 SoulCollage groups I’ve participated in my area, I have not experienced this depth. Thank you!  
— Mary Agnes, Maryland


I just wanted to say thank you for the classes.  I led a workshop on Saturday, and used some of the activities with the participants, with good feedback.  It has helped me also!  I have been especially touched by the dialogues that are happening between some of my cards…very helpful and very deep…      ~ Barbara, Connecticut


I am the one whose heart was broken.

Anne Marie is a gifted facilitator and is able to create both a sacred and safe space, and to both nurture/affirm and stretch others to explore more and go deeper. ~ Lis, Massachusetts


Anne Marie’s presentation style and leadership was very good. She gave us clear, concise instruction interwoven with acceptance and encouragement that made me want to risk trying new things.
~  Janet, Connecticut

All the dragons in our lives are only princesses waiting for us to act, just once, with beauty and courage.  Perhaps everything that frightens us is, in its deepest essence, something helpless that wants our love.  ~ Rilke

There is that part of ourselves that feels ugly, deformed, unacceptable. That part, above all, we must learn to cherish, embrace, and call by name.  — Macrina Wiederkehr
