Remembering Seena Frost: Friend, Mentor, Muse
I feel greatly blessed to have known and worked with a very special soul. Her name was Seena Frost and she was the birth mother of the process that has changed my life in so many ways: SoulCollage(R). She died on January 13, just a month shy of her 84th birthday. Seena had been diagnosed with ALS.
There is so much that I would love to share with you about her, but I think that above all, she would want you to know that her greatest wish was to inspire us to use our intuition and imagination to bring healing and acceptance to ourselves and above all to each other. She loved to hear about all of us SoulCollage(R) enthusiasts around the world who have been building awareness of our inner community through creating cards.She was especially excited to hear about how we have been forming outer community by gathering to do this in groups, sharing what we find out about ourselves, and finding joy and acceptance in the process.
Those of you who have attended my trainings and workshops have heard me quote Seena Frost multiple times. I want you all to know that she can speak through you as well. I admire so many of Seena’s qualities, but what stands out for me now is her willingness and enthusiasm to continue growing, learning, listening, thinking, and creating. She never stopped living because her imagination and sense of humor stayed alive even when her body began shutting down.
Many people have written that they wish that they had known her in person. If you have created a SoulCollage(R) card, or read her book, or attended a workshop you do know Seena very well, because you are well acquainted with the process that she birthed and nurtured and practiced. Whatever you admired about Seena is a reflection of your own qualities.
Seena always asked people that came to her events where they lived. She was so happy to know that kindred spirits all over the world love and appreciate her “baby”. She does indeed live on in SoulCollage(R) and in our cards.
Seena Frost, founder of SoulCollage(R):
Audry’s Memorial Minute, as Quakers would say, does such good service to her life. Her SoulCollage(R) model has helped me survive moving to a new place at age 86, facing the death of my son by cancer, financial difficulties, and the worst cold/cough I’ve ever had! I am starting workshops in the Grants Pass, OR area with the returning energy my cards have given me. My new flier advertising Seena’s baby says: “SoulCollage(R) is a creative personal system to make space in your busy mind to discover who you really are.” My 62-year-old daughter and I built this sentence out of my remarkable returning zest for this work. Her passing reminds me of the loss of my birth mother of the same illness at Seena’s same age. Both of them showed me the way to leave the world a better place than you found it.
