Ignite your creativity and access your imagination with Creative Jewish Art practice!
Join with women from across the country for renewal, reflection, and inspiration.
Using the JSP process, we will explore, create, and experiment through:
- conversation with each other and a text
- a facilitated, intuitive use of art materials, and
- a process of inquiry through writing.
In the Jewish year cycle we are in the Omer, the seven-week period from Passover (leaving Mitzrayim) to Shavuot (receiving Torah at Sinai). From a psycho-spiritual perspective, we leave behind the old habits and paradigms that don’t serve us and wander into the unknown, through the desert for seven weeks. We are moving toward Sinai — toward clarity, sacred awareness, and blueprints for a new way of being.
During the Omer we are in the desert, faced with uncertainty and the possibilities ahead. We count each day to support us in exploring and refining the inner landscape of our own mind and heart. In doing so, we are better able to hear new insights, wisdom, and guidance on how to live well when we reach Sinai this year.
Join us as we explore the experience of the wilderness, creating a context of art, writing, and reflective conversation for this time of wandering through the unknown.
Please note that no background in art is necessary. This process is about accessing our intuition through the art and writing process, not about creating polished images!
Please bring any materials that you have in your home- colored pencils, markers, paints, magazines, tape/glue, etc. as well as unlined blank paper or a journal and a pencil or pen.
