SOULIO FOR BUSINESS
How do we ignite the imagination of our colleagues? What if you could increase your team’s capacity for developing breakthrough ideas and strategies? SOULIO will empower your organization to create innovative and responsive strategic solutions.
Analytical, logical minds are vital in the workplace. For originality and creativity to emerge, we need a deliberate integration of left and right brain thinking. Leveraging team collaboration, intentionality and an actual process of art-making, SOULIO PROCESS and SOULIO PROJECTS jumpstart and strengthen the skills necessary to access highly creative, out-of-the-box thinking. Organizations that truly thrive and lead in their respective sectors share one vital attribute: creativity. This can be learned and then nurtured within your business culture. SOULIO PROCESS is dynamic, playful and purposeful. Our highly engaging, hands-on workshops strengthen and enhance the creativity of those who search every day for new solutions to the toughest challenges.

APPRECIATION TRADING CARDS
Appreciation trading cards are a creative and playful team building activity. Paintings are started and passed from one participant to another. With music playing, each person adds their own expressive marks before passing it on. The resulting collaborative artworks are then cut up and personalized as each member writes appreciation for the others and the cards are exchanged.
SOULIO PROJECTS emphasize actual hands-on art making. They require no prior artistic background. Projects allow individuals and teams to further develop their creative thinking, collaboration, and individuality. Collaborative group collage and painting projects can also be designed.

SOULIO PROCESS is designed for business and organizational development. It enhances team collaboration by utilizing a unique synthesis of founder Jennie Oppenheimer's experience in transformational arts, communication, and psychology. Used in conjunction with SoulCollage®, the method offers a means of exploring common but often overlooked goals, intentions, and purpose. SOULIO PROCESS helps illuminate strengths and clarify and solve problems by engaging colleagues in creative expression through collage. This process is easily learned, requires no artistic background and is accessible to everyone.
Our cards, filled with deep personal meaning, offer a visual narrative of our unique story. They access our inner wisdom and give voice to the many facets of our personality, relationships, visions, and challenges that want to be revealed. Sessions offer plenty of time to create cards and then consult them, using a series of prompts that allow us to step deeper into the images and learn how they relate to our inner and outer worlds. Prompts can be designed to directly support the development of goals and enhance team communication.
SoulCollage® is a creative, intuitive collage process full of imagination and soulful inquiry. Developed by psychologist Seena Frost, SoulCollage is based on the work of Carl Jung, James Hillman and others. Guided by our intuition, we create cards gathering and collaging images that speak to us. Some images we select immediately, knowing how they relate to our lives and work, while others we have no idea why we chose them, or why they seemed to choose us. Discussions are are an integral part of the collage activity and help illuminate challenges, strenghts and solutions.
SoulCollage® is accessible to everyone. No art experience is necessary.
