FILL YOURSELF WITH DELIGHT!

A DAY OF PRAYER AND CREATIVITY

“Every object, every being is a jar full of delight.” Rumi

Delight—what a beautiful word! It's so uplifting. It inspires a desire within us to answer the question:

How am I living a life of Delight?

During difficult times—in the world and within our personal lives—we often feel cut off from delight. Yet, it's important that we restore a sense of balance in ourselves by bringing more joy, creativity, and delight into our daily lives.

In this day of prayer, we will prayerfully play and engage in:

  •  Art Making
  •  Movement
  •  Spiritual Writing
  •  Taking Time to Enjoy Nature

No previous art experience is necessary. Just a desire to fill your body and heart with love and delight. This is also a great workshop for spiritual directors, who want to explore using the creative arts in their current practice.
