This interactive workshop invites you to expand your spiritual direction tool kit through engaging in the creative arts and evoking the imagination as a listening pathway for God.

We will explore the biblical, cognitive, and spiritual formation principles that support the role of creativity and imagination in our faith journey.


  • This will be a resource filled interactive, and experiential day, no artistic ability required!

  • We will answer the question: Can you hear God in the ordinary?
