is a simple practice inspired by scripture, love of art, forms of beauty and Christian psychotherapy. Collage is an intuitive imaginative process and can become a visual journal of your life, assisting you in making deep connections. Each collaged card is made from chosen scripture, magazine or other found images, your own personal photos (optional), and any other piece of found art (optional).
Our time together begins with a presentation regarding the theme of the session and the process of collage making. You will then choose a scripture and images. During the workshop a feast of images will be provided. You will find yourself gravitating toward images that have a personal meaning for you. Through a process of discovery and revelation, adding and subtracting, a larger story, an illuminated image emerges from the layers.
Art of Christian Biblical Meditation:
From ancient times Christians cultivated a practice of meditating. During the session you will learn 4 movements of Christian meditation. (The Reading, Reflecting, Responding and Resting).
At the end of the workshop, participants will have the opportunity to share their cards and their experience. You will take home with you a uniquely crafted card and a creative practice that can be used for your personal scripture meditation and continued growth.
(Inspired Collage™ cards are not sold. The images are recycled for personal enrichment only.)
