I have a key so I open the door and walk in. It is dark and I walk in. It is darker and I walk in. Mark Strand
Journey: Altar Making to Open the Door four week series, Saturday mornings, 9:30-12:00, March 9, 16, 23, 30
Equal parts acts of remembrance, intention setting, claiming and honoring, the careful unfolding of a found object altar over four weeks becomes prayer while weaving together personal reflection and creation with a unique and eclectic variety of materials. We will be loosely guided byJoyce Rupp's bookOpen the Door: A Journey to the True Self.
You do not have to be artsy or creative to work with these materials, nor "religious" in any way to find altar-making a powerful expression of the inner life. Participants will work with their own understanding of "the sacred."
We are almost to our maximum capacity for this series, so please let us know soon if you plan to attend! Cost: sliding scale $25-$40 per session ($100-$160 for the series). Please register in advance: firstname.lastname@example.org or call/text 413-348-2385.
