1st Thursday, 9:00 a.m. – noon, 1st Thursday, 1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m., 1st Saturday, 9:00 a.m. – noon

Group Spiritual direction is a process in which a group of individuals meet on a regular basis in an atmosphere of prayer to pay attention to the ways the Spirit is seeking to provide direction in their lives. The confidential group provides a safe haven for exploring one’s relationship with God, oneself, and others. Spiritual direction is a process of discernment, nurturing awareness of the congruence or in-congruence between our soul’s desires and our daily choices. The art component provides a way for communicating with God through the use of Lectio Divina, silence, images, written reflection and group sharing as we invite our spiritual self to open up to a new creation.

Previous art experience/talent not required. Prayer cards are included in the cost, but a few additional art supplies are needed.

$250/9 Sessions – Meetings are once a month for 3 Hours and are limited to 5 participants.
