"Creation, Contemplation, & the Sacred Circle"
April 18 & 19, 2020
 

The power of creating within the sacred circle of the mandala continues to call us—for healing the broken, disjointed parts of ourselves toward a more integrated whole. Franciscan priest Richard Rohr says, “We are called to become wholemakers.” Combining the solitude of contemplative creativity with the natural landscape of MoonTree studios, we’ll join together for music, inspirational readings and reflection questions to “prime the pump” for self-expression and transformation. This two-day workshop will build sequentially, each mandala drawing giving expression to what is stirring within. A variety of media will be provided to enhance the “wholemaking” process. If you have favorite colored pencils or gel pens, please bring them along, as well as your journal.

"Process Painting: Come to the Table"
June 4-7, 2020
 

No previous art experience is required. You need only bring your willingness and longing to engage with creativity. Process Painting highlights the creative process as a method of self-exploration and discovery; it is not a traditional painting class. The emphasis is the process, not what appears on the paper. Using tempera paint, this form of spontaneous expression provides an opportunity to deepen the connection and the divine. The facilitator acts as a support and witness to the process by asking open-ended questions. A safe and sacred container is created by the absence of product focused commentary. Through intuitive image making, Process Painting allows access to the flow of life giving energy which summons the painter to greater consciousness and wholeness.
