God wants your whole self…so why should you pray with only half your brain? Because we privilege one side of the brain over the other for certain activities, so we also tend to pray with only half our brain. We then wonder why our prayer life seems dry or lifeless. This workshop is designed to help us learn to pray with our whole brain. We will use movement, breathing, music and oil pastels to create a new pathway to prayer. No art experience is necessary—just a willingness to allow God to be present to the parts of ourselves that may need a little exercise. An Art and Soul Workshop will be held on Saturday, October 28th from 1-4:30 in the RSV room. This workshop will be led by Ann Harriet Carew is a professional artist and spiritual director. If interested, there is a sign-up sheet in the Berkeley Office. Please wear comfortable and loose clothing! Contact Megan Hollaway if you have any questions about the workshop.
