Jennifer Elam leads a one-day arts and spirituality worship/workshop. We will begin our day together with worship, asking the Divine and our Creative muses to use our hands and feet to take us to a deeper faith place. Many of us are particularly challenged in the current political climate and the intention of this workshop is to, in part, speak to find greater creative resilience. We will begin by making a small beautiful book in which to do our writings. Then, prompts will be given related to our current challenges and joys and we will write to these prompts in our handmade books. Throughout our time together we will move from the Five Rhythms sacred dance form (Flow, Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical, and Stillness) and share our challenges and joys through movement. We will end the morning and afternoon sessions with a sharing circle, supporting one another in the work we are doing together. No experience necessary or special abilities necessary.
