Full program description
Art as a Spiritual Practice is a contemplative prayer practice that utilizes creative play with art materials to listen for God. In the beginning God created. As humans made in the image of God, our intuitive creations connect us to divine inspiration. These silent meditation sessions include a few guided questions designed to stimulate thought about one’s own art piece and allow time for the spirit to emerge and reveal what the mind is usually too cluttered or too busy to think. No previous art skills or experience necessary, just a willingness to try a different kind of prayer. This course is appropriate for all adults and mature children (sessions require one hour of silence while doing the art and reflection).
