ONLINE: Creative Ways of Coping During Crisis

Sept 11 (F) 10am-11am $30 (Pre-registration required.) Presented virtually via Zoom
This class will review varying creative means of self-care and expression through the visual arts from a spiritual and psychological perspective.  The current experiences of crisis (re: the pandemics of COVID-19 and racism) raise the importance of reconsidering how we take care of ourselves. 

Some of our tried and true self-care activities have been restricted due to the times we are living in and this course looks to the arts, art therapy, and the intersection of art, spirituality, and psychology as a way of fostering new ideas.

ONLINE: Writing Express: Forty Five- Minute Writing and Discussion Sprints to Soothe Our Spirits

July 16, 23, Aug 6, 20, 27, Sept 3 10:30-11:15 $75 (Pre-registration required. Space is limited.) Presented virtually via Zoom
We are in our fifth month of the pandemic, dealing with its grief and loss and faced with radical social injustice-- all in the midst of a presidential election. One of the best ways to make sense of it all is through writing and one of the most inspiring guides for “living with meaning, truth and kindness” is spiritual teacher and poet, Mark Nepo. Nepo’s new book, The Book of Soul: 52 Paths to Living What Matters, provides ample inspiration for discussion and prompts for writing. Nepo writes in the introduction to this book, “It seems the purpose of suffering is to exhaust us of our differences, and the purpose of love is to awaken us to how we’re at heart the same.”  Please join me as we take a focused 45 minutes to discern who we are and what our work is during this time of transformation.
