Art Journaling as a Spiritual Practice in Turbulent Times
Drop-in classes on Saturdays in November, 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM (ET)
Led by LJ Boswell
In these turbulent times, we all need resources and practices that help us process and center. In a nurturing and supportive environment, explore the wisdom of your own inner landscape and the power of art to help you process life.
Each class will begin with an introduction to a simple art lesson you can choose to incorporate into your art journaling time. Then relax into a guided meditation and the meditative flow of creation. From a space of listening, open to Spirit’s guidance as a way of creating what you most need to express or remember in this moment. We will close with an opportunity for those who are inspired to share from your heart. If no one is moved to share, we’ll simply enjoy the gifts of a meditative space.
No matter your level of artistic skill, no matter your previous relation to spirituality, you may be surprised at what emerges when you allow yourself to relax into creative flow. You can attend as many of these workshops as you'd like to!
You can either register for one workshop at a time, or register for the entire series at a discounted rate. If you have questions about registration, please email Jen Higgins-Newman, at [email protected].
These classes will be held on Zoom.
Workshop dates: Saturdays, November 7, 14, 21, & 28.
