Join Liz and Vonda in a time of wonder, a time of reading together the writings of some of their favorite mystics. Delight with them in the profoundly simple and grapple with the questions that arise.
Liz will lead the spacious practices of centering prayer and labyrinth walking, cultivating a posture of receptivity to presence which may even render moments of great communion.
Vonda will facilitate contemplative and creative journaling as one way to process what the Spirit is stirring among us, a way to mark this holy work.
All experience levels welcome. Ages 16+
What will class time be like? Will I need to work outside of class?
Each session will have group centering prayer and together we will read writings of the mystics. Times of labyrinth walking, riverside reflection and deep listening at the Finisterre will open us to what might come. In the studio we will respond with the creative journaling.
Technically we will explore the use of alcohol-based markers in blending and coloring. Our class will be small enough to allow for individual coaching. Students will not be required to work outside of class; however, the studio will be open throughout the day and students are welcome to continue working if they choose.
What can I expect to create?
Each participant will be invited to establish a personal journal filled with the questions, observations, insights, and imagery from our time together. Participants will also develop skills and methods to continue the spiritual practices on their own.
What should I bring to class?
All necessary materials will be provided; however, students with prior art experience are welcome to bring a favorite sketchbook and drawing media. Students are also welcome to bring favorite devotional material.
