Spring Sacred Arts 2020
Apr 26 – May 2, 2020
Spring Sacred Arts Week 2020 on the Guild campus has been cancelled.
For those registered, we sent you an email detailing alternative offerings and class rescheduling. Facilitators Laurie Rudel and Scott Burnett are working on a way to engage online with you so that you can still be part of a sacred, creative community during that week. These electronic resources will be available to you at no charge.
If you were not registered but would like to receive the daily devotions April 26 – May 2, 2020, sign up here at no charge.
Jan Krist is offering an online version of her workshop, Songs for What Ails You, April 29 – May 2. More information about this songwriting workshop here.
At this time, we hold with open hands our plans for what Spring Sacred Arts 2020 was meant to be. Stay tuned as we develop a creative, life-giving way to be together online in the Guild Spirit.
The Theme: Forest Vision
The Grünewald Guild has practiced art among the Ponderosas since 1980. With each collective, creative connection, the soul emerges, love is resurrected, and new ways of living, being and moving throughout this world are experienced.
While we remember the Guild’s namesake, Matthias Grünewald, whose work 500 years ago served as a medium of transformation in both personal healing and social reconciliation, we also celebrate this place in the “green woods” that for 40 years has been home to thousands of artists.
Together we listen, honor and respond to the Spirit’s presence through questions that will not let us go, with laughter and conversation, in quiet and restful moments. In the unity of hope and courage, love shows up in visible and audible revelations of story, painting, sculpture, song, our art. We witness miracles.
Come be part of Spring Sacred Arts as together we are about the work and play of witnessing miracles.
“I loved [how matins and vespers] tied the days, the week and the community together — the mixture of poetry, sculpture, reflective garden and altar time.”
“[The week was] beautifully planned and paced, inviting joyful involvement.”
“[It was] welcoming, open and supportive.”
Some glimpses of Spring 2018 Sacred Arts Week:
Spring Sacred Arts is a time to gather and envision new possibilities for creativity and the sacred. This year’s classes feature familiar favorites as well as new offerings, all taught by our world-class faculty with an average class size of just seven students.
Newcomers and old friends alike say it is the intimate and inclusive community that makes the Guild so unique. Throughout the week, you’ll be able to enjoy communal meals, twice-daily worship, and plenty of opportunities for informal conversation and sharing. You are welcome to take part in all activities, or spend time alone in creativity, rest, and reflection.
