Expressive arts could be considered a kind of play for adults. It provides ways for you to leave your logical mind and experiment spontaneously into ever-new realms of imagination. Creating spaces and times to create every day can loosen you from the world-weariness of adult concerns and invite the long forgotten innocence from your childhood to reemerge.
The aim of an expressive arts practice is to explore two or more artistic disciplines within a single session. Regularly changing up your creative practices can keep you imaginatively nimble. Expand your range of play by creating a drawing and then writing a poem about it, or dancing to a song you are singing can deepen your connection to your imaginal world...

'Take a nurturing time out.'
With this intention we invite you to create a dedicated space in your home for quiet prayer and contemplation. This area can be as simple as a comfortable chair with a small table, perhaps near a window to gaze on nature while sipping your morning coffee.
Add a candle (battery works well), a cloth and a symbol or two that reflects the celebration of nature. This could be a plants, a stone, a picture - see what speaks to you. You might also choose to add a new symbol each week and a basket for your bible or other inspirational text. Be sure to have a journal with pen which is helpful as you embark on your personal journey. Commit to spending time here each day, allowing yourself time to rest, renew and reflect in the coming weeks,
Many people long to find meaning in their lives, to discover their true selves, and to grow closer to God and others. But sometimes, it’s hard to know just where to start. A directed retreat can help you start the process as you attempt to deepen your relationship with the divine and grow in your own personal spirituality.
We offer a sacred space to assist individuals on their own spiritual journey – whether it is to reconnect with their inner-spirit or whether they are seeking a deeper relationship with God and the world around them. Our programs encourage an awakening of the spirit that leads to hope, healing, peace and transformation.

Warm summer sun,
Shine kindly here,
Warm southern wind,
Blow softly here.
Green sod above,
Lie light, lie light.
Good night, dear heart,
Good night, good night.
