Soulistry Workshops are fun, easy, relaxing (as assists in de-stressing), creative and help make the connection between creativity and spirituality. No ‘art experience’ necessary – at all!
They can be modified to meet the needs of the group – workshop format or retreat format; day-long, weekend or week-long length; groups of 4 – 10; larger groups (10+).
A Spirituality of Play
An opportunity to experience playful creativity in a safe, nurturing environment, participants will explore both several techniques and discover the “child-within” in a gentle and delightful way that deepens their sense of spirituality. (all-day or weekend workshop/retreat)
Awakening the Creative Spirit
As the ‘ordinary’ is transformed into the sacred, artistic soul-space is created, creativity is re-awakened, playful nature is released and spirituality is enriched in new ways.
Simple-and easy-to-make books will be created in a fun and playful atmosphere.
Create your own handmade cards using simple and fun techniques in an atmosphere of play, learning and fun.
Clowning (weekend workshop/retreat)
Mime, music, creative spirituality journaling, movement, laughter and silence are interwoven in the creation of a personal clown as a ministry of clowning is nurtured.
Creative Spirituality Journaling
In a quiet and sacred experience of artistic reflection, renewal and creativity, discover how ‘sight’ becomes ‘insight’ and uncover the invisible presence of the holy in the visible world and within.
H(art)ful Spirit (weekend workshop/retreat)
Spirit captures heart and mind as joy and creativity-within are discovered while working with a spiritual advisor, published author and Creative Spirituality Artist who encourages that intangible soul-essence of life in a variety of artistic experiences.
Mandala Creative Workshop
Mandalas have been used around the world as a form of mindfulness and creativity for centuries. The Mandala (a Sanskrit word for sacred circle) is both a process and a tool that can bring us to a place of inspired creativity and deepened spirituality. The primary intention of the Mandala is to fully open ourselves to “being present” in the artistic process rather than creating a finished product. The Mandala process provides simple techniques to experience creative self-expression and feelings of stillness, peace and spiritual renewal.
