God created our minds and our bodies to work together to process our stories, to live out our relationship with Him, and to internalize His Truths. In this experiential workshop, we will explore ways we can bring our whole person into our time of solitude with the Lord. We will begin with Lectio Divina, then we will engage in several expressive art modalities  poetry, art-making, and movement – to experience on a deeper level what arose during our time of prayer. No previous art experience needed.
