Journey into Meditation through Visual Art

Theme Retreat: Friday March 23 – Sunday, 25, 2012

The link between art and spirituality is explored with the intention of deepening our personal prayer practice through guided meditation and creativity. We will explore our own voice by enjoying “hands on” experiences, which encourage experimentation with line, colour, shape, texture and composition.

Participants are invited to use simple materials to make a piece of art which expresses something of personal significance relating to their experience of prayer. Along the way, we’ll have the opportunity to look at and respond to paintings, be a part of a communal visual art expression, and listen to beautiful music.

Led by Carol Knowlton-Dority, B.A., B.Ed., a visual artist with considerable experience in teaching art as meditational prayer and enabling others to create mindfulness through visual art.

Begins 4 pm Friday; ends 1:30 pm Sunday. Fee is $200 + $10 for supplies; the deposit is $35.
