Playing in the Presence of God

Playing in the Presence of God is a workshop/retreat where participants are invited to engage in process art as part of their spiritual journey.   Playing with unfamiliar materials, outside one’s comfort zone, can bring about an unexpected freedom and sense of release, enabling one to experience afresh the love of God.   Although items of meaning and beauty may be created the emphasis is on the process rather than the finished piece.   Each day starts with a time of meditation and reflection from which to draw inspiration for the creative process.   There is also a time, for those who want to, to share their experience with the other participants.
