Sisters to host ‘Art Journaling’

Let your inner creativity and inner wisdom emerge by learning how art and journaling can enhance your spiritual journey during the upcoming retreat “Art Journaling,” with the Sisters of Providence of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods, Indiana.

The retreat, which will be facilitated by Sister Rosemary Schmalz, SP, will take place from 6:30-9 p.m., on Friday, Sept. 30, and 9 a.m.-4 p.m., on Saturday, Oct. 1 in the Foley Room at Providence Spirituality & Conference Center.

“Journaling has long been accepted as a sound spiritual practice,” Sister Rosemary said. “In this workshop, you will be introduced to journaling practices that integrate simple images, images generated by easy, fun art exercises. Adding images to journaling enhances the potential to access your inner wisdom and expand your spiritual insights.  The workshop is unique in that it leads participants in serious spiritual work combined with wonderfully childlike art experiences.”

No art or writing skills are necessary. Those attending only need to bring a childlike willingness to set aside inhibitions and be delighted with the magic of color and the wonder of words.

Cost to attend is $150 per person with housing and two meals included or $80 without housing and only one meal included. The registration fee also includes all materials and refreshments.

The registration deadline is Sept. 23, and space is limited.

Register online here or by calling 812-535-2952 or emailing provctr@spsmw.org.
