SoulCollage® uses the language of images and symbols for self-expression and discovery.

Cards are made and used intuitively to illuminate and deepen your self-understanding.
These intensives are half- to full-day sessions

As developed by the Midwest Academy (Jerry is a certified facilitator for almost 20 years) it focuses on starting with policy goals, strategy, resource considerations, key allies and opponents, targeting key decision makers, issue framing, and lastly tactics and timing to engage. DAO is appropriate for groups, agencies and programs which want to make an impact and affect change.
