Weaving the “Holy” … into the threads of everyday life!
“God is present in the details of the everyday but is also visible when we pull back and take a wider gaze upon our lives and pay attention to the patterns and ways things have been woven together.” Christine Valters Painter, PhD, Eyes of the Heart
The “warp and woof” of everyday life provides the interlocked fibers that weave our personal “life-tapestry” into a unique and strong fabric of being. This reflective, tangible and creative exploration will invite each participant to focus on their life journeys. Those elements along with the written word will be used to weave a “paper-tapestry” representing each person. Artistic ability not needed … just the soul of a “child.” The process will incorporate personal prayer & reflection as well as shared conversation. Meaningful songs, ritual and essential oils add a sense of the sacred. We will journey into the quiet where the “HOLY” meets us in our everyday lives
A time to shed the noise and busy activity of daily living time for your soul to stop, breathe, listen, and reflect!
Private Room Fee: $122. Commuter Fee: $84. Registration deadline is November 2.
