Art & Soul Workshop: Process Painting as a Path to the
Holy. Saturday, February 26, , at Artist’s Crossing Hamden. Materials provided. Facilitated by Studio Artist and Spiritual Director,
Harriet Carew, M.Div., this workshop will offer an opportunity to explore
"process painting" as a way to make soul art. The painting
method focuses on an intuitive, non-verbal level by inviting images to emerge
from our unconscious. Through movement and music, participants will be led to
the right side of the brain. Here, using color, line and form, paintings
will be created in oil pastels that become the locus of individual meditation.
The playfulness and integration of new aspects of ourselves can lead to sacred
and authentic dialogue with the God of our understanding as well as stretch our
capacity to companion others. Wear comfortable clothes. Harriet Carew was
trained as a Spiritual Director at the Weston Jesuit School of Theology and is
a former art teacher. Artist's Crossing is located next to Grace and St.
Peter's Episcopal Church at

Black Feminist Coalition at Yale: For the past year, a group of black women have gathered in each other’s homes and built a community of sisterhood and support. Sister Space-- The Black Feminist Coalition at Yale has been a place to practice feminism, foster relationships and build trust. We are an amalgam of theories, disciplines, and opinions and our monthly meetings are as lively and intellectually engaging as they are needful for the group. On Friday, February 25th, we will open our doors once again for membership in the hopes that the intimate world we have created can expand and include more black women in search of what we are offering--a place to meet once a month to consider black women's lives, arts, histories, thoughts, and representations, to discuss issues of political and personal import, and to support one another's scholarly and professional endeavors. The first anniversary meeting of the Black Feminist Coalition will take place at on Friday, February 25th at the home of Kimberly Brown. Please R.S.V.P. via email: email@example.com by February 20th if you plan to attend. The Black Feminist Coalition
