INTRODUCTION TO EXPLORING SPIRIT

Sunday, October 20th, 11:30-12:30

Learn more about this seven-part series that will be offered over the next six months. Led by practitioners in the Savannah area, the series will offer a time of self-discovery and exploration. Westina Matthews, Facilitator. No charge for this session.

EXPLORING SPIRIT THROUGH MEDITATION

Saturday, November 2, 9am - Noon

Do you long for a deeper connection to spirit, to your soul, the higher world? Have you been intrigued by the idea of meditation, but don’t know where to start? There seems to be a real hunger in this world for spiritual experience. You are invited to this half-day workshop to discover there are many ways to meditate, begin to understand how to navigate the inner life, try several kinds of meditation, and ask questions. You will leave with the tools to begin your own meditation practice and connect more deeply to spirit. Workshop Leader: the Rev. Nancy Kelly, PhD. 

$20 per workshop. 


EXPLORING SPIRIT THROUGH MUSIC

Saturday, November 16, 9am - Noon

November 16 – Exploring Spirit Through Music

It is said that music is the language of the soul, expressing what words alone cannot.  We will discuss how music communicates as a language, first, (without becoming a music theory class) by identifying the elements of music (rhythm, dynamics, melody, harmony, tone color, texture, and form) and then by exploring how those components work together and separately to affect our thoughts and emotions.  


We will ask lots of questions about how we perceive music and we will spend lots of time learning to listen more objectively. Maybe it’s not the music itself that evokes emotions, rather perhaps it is the memories you recall when you hear music. 

As we become more aware of the music itself, we will move with the rhythm, we will find joy in silence, and we will creatively improvise expressions without words; all toward gaining a deeper knowledge of the spirit.

Workshop Leader: Dr. Timothy McKee

$20 per workshop. 

EXPLORING SPIRIT THROUGH SACRED READING & ART

Saturday, December 14, 9am-Noon

Join us for this workshop where we will explore Spirit through the practice of Lectio Divina and Visio Divina. As we focus on Lectio Divina, or divine reading, we will learn about and discuss the ancient practice of praying the Scriptures.


We will have the opportunity to experience Lectio Divina by entering a particular Bible passage using our imaginations in dialogue with Spirit. The second part of our workshop will focus on Visio Divina, or divine seeing. In this practice, we will use art to spark our imaginations as we explore connection with Spirit, self, and others. We will be invited to share and discuss our individual experiences.


Workshop Leader: Karen Cote
