CREATIVE SPIRITUALITY WRITING
In a CREATIVE SPIRITUALITY WRITING workshop, a quiet and sacred experience of artistic reflection, renewal and creativity encourages a discovery of how ‘sight’ becomes ‘insight’ and the invisible presence of the holy in the visible world and within.
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 MANDALA101 workshop provides simple techniques to experience creative self-expression and feelings of stillness, peace and spiritual renewal.
