Spirituality and Art: Eaten by God

October 19 @ 10:00 am - 1:30 pm

spirituality and art

As an artist who takes time every day for mindful Centering prayer, I’ve come to see the connection between the meditative, contemplative, and creative processes. Simone Weil, the 20th-century French philosopher, and mystic summed it up in a particular passage about going to the center of the Labyrinth and being eaten by God.

In our day together we will explore this metaphor and discuss the relationship between art and prayer. I will then give some tips on looking at (sacred) art, with time for questions about the process. Then we will take some time to look at some pieces of my art that I will have available. We will then finish with a sharing of our experience of hearing the talk and looking mindfully at the artwork.

Presenter: Brother Michael Moran, C.P., is an artist whose work is collected and exhibited worldwide. He was recently featured in an article in VISION magazine.

This program includes lunch.
