Thursday, at 11am-12:30pm PT
Virtual Workshop via Zoom

Join Irene Dunlop for a 1.5 hour experiential, we’ll explore art as spiritual practice. Just as divine love is the creative force in the universe, that creative force flows through us.

During our time together we’ll touch on the science of how engaging our body in the physical process of creating benefits us and experiment with several art-based spiritual practices together.

No art talent or experience is required. This is a safe/brave space to explore how engaging in creative work makes room for the Divine to work within. This experiential also offers tools for practitioners who desire to use art as spiritual practice with directees or congregants.

*Please note, this workshop is a part of the Incarnate faith series on cultivating connection with Divine love through physical practice.

Irene Dunlop

Irene’s fascination with how we, as embodied humans, experience the flow of divine love motivates her work. Irene is an artist, writer, yoga instructor, former pastor and current spiritual director. Injuries sustained in car accidents, necessitated a healing journey through which she encountered Iyengar yoga. As a practitioner for 10+ years, Irene found herself exploring the tensions between the embodiment she experienced in her physical yoga practice and her mostly thought-centered faith— both illuminated the holy. This exploration led her to Richard Rohr’s Living School. Study of the mystics and embodied spiritual practice continues to draw her toward a more fully integrated sense of self, spiritual and physical. Ascribing to the belief that God is revealed in all things, Irene delights in her family, faith community, creating with flowers, food, fabric and paint, hiking, sailing the Salish sea, and hot cups of ginger tea.
