The four-fold path of creation spirituality: an imaginative and ritual journey

We offer a ritual artistic experience rooted in Creation Spirituality and Christian mysticism. An experience of sacredness that starts as original blessing, deeply connecting us to each other and the cosmos. We will embark on a journey through the four viae, or paths, of Creation Spirituality, each expressing a different facet of spiritual awakening. We will taste how the sacred can reveal itself in the experiences of ordinary life, whether joyful or sorrowful, and in the efforts of individual creation and collective transformation. We will experience how, rooting ourselves in our bodies, we can dare the night of the soul: the profound silence of such night holds the keys to our original voice. We will learn how deep communion with the world as-is and with our creative power is necessary to enable transformation in our communities. Our traveling kit will include artistic expression, poetry, dance, ritual, and soulful sharing.
