Creativity & the Arts

“There is in us an instinct for newness, for renewal, for a liberation of creative power.” Thomas Merton, monk and author

Throughout the ages, creative expression and the arts have been recognized as portals to the Creator. And, according to writer and online abbess Christine Valters Paintner, “they also create a meditative space in which one is held in the present moment.”

Our programs are designed to explore the creative process, tapping into deeper ways of knowing our Selves, the Other and the Sacred.

No previous experience is necessary because the programs emphasize process not product. Facilitators are skilled in their media but also experienced in providing a safe atmosphere in which to explore.  Programs are not how-to workshops but experiential encounters with the creative process.
