Join us for a multi-day, overnight retreat experience exploring creative journaling practice as a way of prayer. Sr. Marianne defines art-journaling as “the use of simple art materials, contemplative gazing, written journaling and noticing to help clarify, express, or respond to prayer and expression.” Our time will include journaling and Visio Divina, communal prayer, meditations, solitude, rest, and optional sharing. Bring your journal and art supplies. Basic art materials will be provided.
