No course on October 15 | online | €249
As you step back from the ‘busy-ness’ of the external world of people, activities, and things, your Unconscious can guide you to a place of healing and quietude where you can let your soul catch up.
Floating effortlessly, without having to ‘do’ anything or make anything happen, you can connect with a source of inner knowing, resilience and compassion.
There is no app needed to help you navigate. Through guided meditation, mind-body exercises and SoulCollage(®) you may even be surprised to find that you have always known the way. It is yours and yours alone.
As with any expedition, we journey as our unique selves who come together to form a community of explorers who venture into the inner world in search of inspiration.
Throughout the course we will share teachings and experiential activities drawn from ancient spiritual wisdom, indigenous cultures, Jungian psychology and neuroscience to create a magical experience for your mind-body and soul.
You will learn how people in different cultures are able to live through upheaval, conflict, and instability with gratitude and grace.
And you will receive five gifts for hope, healing, strength, and resilience.
It is our hope and intention that you will feel spiritually nourished, relaxed and refreshed, ready to re-enter the external world with a stronger sense of your own inner strengths and potentials you never knew you had.
We invite you to picture and imagine yourself ending the course with renewed hope & optimism. Your outlook on life has changed.
You feel stronger and able to deal with anything that will happen to you.
Your new and heightened self-awareness enhances your self-esteem. You know how to access your inner healer to help you take care for yourself in troubled times.
When things really get tough you know your path to your own private refuge.
You will have your treasures of your soul (your SoulCollage® cards) that you made during the course. They inspire you and make you feel loved, healed and inspired. This makes you so happy and proud!
You will also carry a imaginary backpack with skills for a quick way for releasing stress, anxiety and trauma. You feel selfconfident, resilient and strong carrying this backpack.
You feel healed by the 5 spiritual gifts and the new meaningful connections you have made with the beautful other participants from all over the world.
We will meet every Sunday for 5 weeks on Zoom. Each session will be 2,5 hours.
We will also make cards, so you need to buy SoulCollage® Card maerials

A journalist for the first twenty years of her career, Laurie came to recognize that people whose lives were shattered by catastrophic events would need long-term emotional support.
But it wasn’t until she became sick with chronic fatigue syndrome due to burnout from the pressures of her career and family responsibilities that her new path was revealed.
After writing the best-selling book Sixth Sense: Unlocking Your Ultimate Mind Power, Laurie returned to school and at the age of 43 earned a doctorate in psychology; three years later, she earned a second doctorate in clinical hypnotherapy with a specialty in stress, health and PTSD.
Since 1991, she has helped thousands of individuals and organizations recover from traumatic events and natural disasters. Dr. Laurie ran a program for teenagers whose fathers were killed in the September 11 th 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center; a long-term program for survivors of Hurricane Sandy which also destroyed her own home in 2012.
She designed emotional first aid workshops for teachers at the Parkland high school where 17 students were shot dead by a former student. For the past three years she has been leading long term support programs for Miami firefighters and others living with long Covid since the start of the pandemic.
Her approach to healing integrates ancient wisdom she has learned from women shamans and curanderas in the southern hemisphere as well as remote viewers who
were employed as psychic spies by the U.S. military.
Dr. Laurie is a SoulCollage® facilitator and has delivered SoulCollage® workshops for NYC Health + Hospitals, Zen Mind Space in Florida, and the New York Open Center.
In 1996, she delivered a two-day workshop on shamanism and neurolinguistic programming for medical professionals in Amsterdam.
The author of eight books, her most recent is The Five Gifts: Discovering Hope, Healing and Strength When Disaster Strikes.
Lucy Schaaphok studied traditional psychology for several years.
Frustrated by her university’s lack of courses in her areas of interest,
she researched and pursued an independent study program into Jungian and spiritual psychology.
Lucy’s education has included workshops and training many different methodologies. She has done specialized research into archetypes, Inner personalities and belief systems.
She was specializing in child development during her psychology study and recognized the importance of a safe and inspirational environment for children to learn and thrive. She started a private school for children, so they can develop themselves in a way that that they can stay true to themselves.
Lucy is an artist. Since 2005, she has taught many painting courses to people who wanted to develop themselves. Thirteen years ago, she discovered SoulCollage®. She loved it so much that she became a facilitator in 2010 and a trainer in 2013.
Facilitating many online and in- person workshops over the last 12
years, she has developed many ways to work with SoulCollage® on a deep level. Lucy organized the delivered a number of SoulCollage® retreats in Portugal, the Netherlands and also in Damanhur, Italy.
