Heart Art

By August 29, 2013October 1st, 2013No Comments



This retreat will focus on Healing Joy Art as Meditation. This is a unique combination of Prayer/Meditation and the expressive arts.

All of us have an artist inside who needs to be engaged so that we can process the head stuff with which we are bombarded on a daily basis.  This helps us to live a life in balance.

Come and enjoy some creative freedom as you explore with your inner artist.  Come prepared to have fun.

No artistic talent/experience is required.  This is a come as you are retreat.  Dress comfortably and be ready to learn with your heart.
