This is where we stayed the first night in France. What a glorious old 12th Century castle in Cahors. It was a retreat home for the Bishop of Cahors who later became a pope.

Connecting Art & Spirit
an art workshop and retreat
Maria Stein Spiritual Center
Maria Stein, Ohio
April 30-May 2, 2010
The theme of grace was the weekend's creativity practice as we explored
the creative expression of grace through visual art. Participants each had a blank
book in which to incorporate text and images. The Book of Grace is a derivative
of the Book of Hours. I directed the participants through meditation, reflection,
creative writing, painting and sharing. It truly was a weekend filled with grace.
As a result, next year's connecting art and spirituality retreat is in the making.
Book of Hours
I made a copy of this book for each participant. It is a
reminder of the hours in a day and a time to offer silent prayers.
Permission was granted for printing by www.gratefulness.org.
An example in the Book of Hours is Vigils: The Night Watch—
before the day's noises begin, when it is still perfectly quiet. "In the stillness
before my day begins, I open my heart to the gift of this hour; gratefully
I listen to the silence."
The prayers in the Book of Hours are:
Vigils: The Night Watch
Lauds: Coming of the Light
Prime: A Deliberate Beginning
Terce: The Joy of Living
Sext: Commitment and Fervor
None: The Shadows Lengthen
Vespers: Lighting the Lamps
Compline: Completing the Circle

In the week long workshop at the 2009 Calligraphy Conference one of the exercises was to section a sheet of black Arches text wove into 6 different grids. The paper was then enhanced with different marks by utilizing a variety of writing instruments. It was made into a decorative box to hold our Book of Days.

Prayer beads were made from fabric, beads and waxed linen thread along with our own personal projects. Throughout the weekend we gathered around a beautiful plant garden to share thoughts and ideas that stirred our spirit. There is a labyrith on the property, beautiful gardens and running water over a rock garden.
