This April, we look forward to welcoming Claire Bischoff as she invites us to explore two spiritual practices connected with art: one ancient, one contemporary.

First, we will learn about praying with icons, a centuries-old practice grounded in the Orthodox Christian tradition. Second, we will experiment with prayer doodling, a practice developed by Sybil MacBeth. Both of these practices are widely adaptable for use with individuals and groups and with an array of artistic and natural media.

The Groundings programs are a collaboration with Sacred Ground, Loyola Spirituality Center and Ignatian Spirituality Center.
