Retreat - Kissed By God: Holy Women Create!


  • The Franciscan Renewal Center 5802 East Lincoln Drive Scottsdale, AZ, 85253 United States (map)

Join the Holy Women kissed by God whose creativity flowed into our world in art, music and writing: Miriam the dancer, Hildegard the artist, Teresa of Avila and Therese of Lisieux the writers. This interactive weekend retreat invite your creative expression as you explore art by and about Holy Women from ancient times (such as Mary Magdalene and the Woman at the Well) to today (including Tekakwitha and Hildegard). You will carry away a treasure of spiritual practices from your adventures with art, journaling, poetry, music, dreamwork, prayer and meditation--each nurturing your spiritual growth in your own unique way. Invite these Holy Women to lead you to deeper trust of your own inner wisdom, grace and creativity in a comfortable, welcoming setting.

Skill or experience in journaling, arts of dreamwork not necessary, only a spirit of adventure and wonder.
