August 6, 2012 Leave a Comment
On Friday, August 10 – 12, 2012, a two night silent weekend retreat, Art and the Spiritual Exercises, will be held at Ignatius House Jesuit Retreat Center.
This retreat will center on the interior movements of prayer as experienced through attention and participation in the Liturgy of the Hours. Time will be given for creative responses to prayer throughout the weekend. The main art activity will be crafting a book which participants will take home for their personal use. A variety of papers and mixed media will be available for this project.
The retreat will combine multi-sensory experiences: music, poetry, dance, meditation and ritual. The benefits of this retreat will be an increased awareness and appreciation of God in all things. An expanded sense of responsibility for the care of the created world. A deep sense of belonging to the world and each other. Greater freedom and joy in living creatively.
