Spiritual Art Journal
Time: 9:00 - 10:00 AM
Fee: FREE (but you need to have taken the Spiritual Art Jouranl prep class
What is a spiritual art journal? It's a way to visually record thoughts and images that reflect your interaction with life on a spiritual level. This has been a surprisingly wonderful discovery for me that I have found to be very meaningful.

I've so enjoyed this process that I wanted to open it up for others to try as well. Each Monday morning, we will meet from 9-10 AM to do an hour of journaling in a guided session. There is no fee for this time - come to as many or as few as you are able. But you need to have attended the "prep workshop" in order to have the pages on which to journal. Students should bring: their journal pages and a favorite writing pen.
