Spirituality and Art: Eaten by God

October 28 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

$30
art

As an artist and one who takes time every day for mindful Centering prayer, I’ve come to see the connection between the meditative, contemplative process and the creative process.  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 talk about 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 on 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 throughout the world. He was recently featured in an article in VISION magazine.
