810CA: Corey Anne Celebration of Women in the Arts

Blessings Honored
Julia and Pat will be facilitating the community that gathers to honor the many faces of blessings in our lives.
Julia will share inspiring meditations to support you in relaxing into the blessings of the moment. It is in the pause of our busyness that our hearts soften and can be authentically present with the beauty that we are. This presence opens the eyes of our hearts and helps us witness the wondrous movement of blessings in our lives.
Pat will facilitate a variety of creative expressive art activities using movement, clay, music, and mixed media. During the workshop, participants will experience how movement can inspire and transfer into creative designs. They will fill papers with this inspiration using a variety of techniques, paints, materials and marking tools. These papers will be fashioned into special mixed media pieces, vessels or books for harboring words, thoughts or photos that honor, describe or celebrate blessings in their lives.
So, treat yourself to an afternoon of non-judgmental expressive arts and creative expression. Open to any level of expertise! Come and take time to relax, move, have fun, play, reflect, create.
A variety of supplies and materials will be provided. Many examples will be displayed for inspiration. Please dress comfortably.
***Participants are invited (but not required) to bring the following items: A small token to add to the center altar that represents a special blessing,
An apron
Favorite ‘marking tools’
Interesting papers, fabric scraps…. special used or new envelopes….pages from letters, journals, books, childhood papers, photos, etc.
 A small object, bead(s), charm, old jewelry for fun add-ons…..anything can be used for embellishment in your personal creation.
