Soul Singing with Anne Marie
Anne Marie, the creator of
Hi!  I'm Anne Marie, the creator of, and a SoulCollage®  facilitator in Massachusetts.  If you're just starting to sing your song with SoulCollage®, this column is especially for you.

Mother has always been a strong archetype in my life, since the time I was a little girl playing dolls and mothering our family cat, Tiny.  I was delighted to be able to put this into image and words when I discovered SoulCollage.   

In lieu of a full column this month, I am directing you to an article I wrote on my blog, Inner Surprises a few years ago.  In this entry, I explore the inner surprise of discovering that there are many sides to the Divine Mother.  In fact, I have two cards in my Council Suit for Mother.  Each one represents a different aspect of her.  You can read about my Two Divine Mothers on this page.

Anne Marie Bennett is a freelance writer, self-taught artist, SoulCollage® Facilitator and Facilitator Trainer who trained with Seena Frost. Her background is elementary education, computer software training, writing, and mixed media art. She lives, laughs, writes, and sings (and makes her own SoulCollage® cards!) in Beverly, MA. More of Anne Marie's cards/interpretations are available on her blog, Inner Surprises.

Soul Symphonies with Karen

Due to illness, Karen was not able to write a column for us this month. Instead, we are using this space to share with you some resources on the Mother Archetype that we've found helpful:

SoulCollage® cards are made either from one's own art or from images found in materials which have been bought by or given to the SoulCollage® card maker. These collaged cards are used only for the cardmaker's own inner exploration. SoulCollage® cards are not sold, traded, bartered, or copied (except as a back-up for the cardmakers own use) as is stated in the " Principles of SoulCollage®." Where SoulCollage® cards are available to be seen by others, it is for the purposes either of demonstrating the SoulCollage® process or of sharing the cardmakers' inner process in the context of community. SoulCollage® is grateful to the artists and photographers who make this deep awakening process possible and in all ways SoulCollage® seeks to be respectful of their rights.
