Art Journaling Retreat

“I feel that art has something to do with the achievement of stillness in the midst of chaos. A stillness which characterizes prayer, too. ”

- Saul Bellow

This retreat is designed to encourage and guide participants to let their inner creativity and inner wisdom emerge.

Through well planned art and journaling exercises, participants will have an opportunity to open themselves to the Spirit within.  With no emphasis on product, they can work freely, letting the images and colors lead to new insights.  Each session is guaranteed to be playful as well as prayerful.

Absolutely no art or writing skills are necessary.  Participants need to bring only a childlike willingness to set aside inhibitions and to be delighted with the magic of color and the wonder of words.

Friday, August 21 - August 23, 2020
The retreat begins at 7:30pm on Friday and concludes after the noon meal on Sunday.
Cost of $255 includes $50 non-refundable deposit, overnight accommodations, meals, and supplies.


Rosemary Schmalz, SP,  a Sister of Providence from St. Mary-of-the-Woods Indiana, has done formal and informal studies on the use of art and journaling in spiritual development for the past 30 years and has offered many workshops and retreats.
