Expectant Waiting: A SoulCollage® Advent Series
Expectant Waiting: A SoulCollage Advent, is a four-week series on Saturdays, December 2, 9, 16 and 23, 2023 via Zoom from 1:30 to 3:30pm EST. In this series, we will explore the four themes of Advent leading up to Christmas through the process of SoulCollage®.
Each weekly workshop will focus on the themes found in Christian liturgical celebrations in the weeks prior to Christmas – Hope, Peace, Joy and Love.
Advent is the season of waiting and preparing for the celebration of birth of Jesus, who is Light to the world. We will embrace “waiting” by visiting the themes of Hope, Peace, Joy and Love and invite characters of the Nativity story to emerge and companion us. Through the energy of the Advent themes, we make “real” the Christmas message and its place in our lives.
After an opening ritual of quiet meditation and contemplation followed by a short presentation, participants will reflect on the theme for that week and then create cards in a quiet and contemplative environment. Participants will be invited to share in breakout sessions using the SoulCollage® process, writing a prayer, a pantoum or other reflection. The experience will conclude with a closing ritual.
Each individual session if purchased separately is $50 per session, however, if you sign up for all FOUR weekly sessions, the fee is $180 – a savings of $20. After registering using the PayPal window below (or message me to pay by Venmo), you will receive a Zoom link.
