Dazzling Darkness by Christine Dodds
Hosted by CARM (The Creative Arts Retreat Movement) and Holland House this day retreat is an exploration of darkness and light in the spiritual life and how we reflect this in art.
This day comes just after Easter during which many of us will have travelled along the darkness of the way of the cross to the light of the resurrection. Light and dark are great themes in the Christian faith and in the Christian life. All of us experience times of darkness and light, sorrows and joys, ups and downs. Life teaches us that they are an inevitable part of our humanity.
What does it mean to discover God in both the light and the dark? Can our darkness “dazzle” with the light of God even in difficult times and can we experience the light of God when our prayer seems dry and dark?
This day will explore these two elements using times of silence, times of input and time to pray. We will use paint and pastel as a way of expressing our prayer in a different way. You do not need to bring anything (though if you have some art materials it would be helpful to bring them) and you do NOT have to be good at art – just to have a desire to let go, pray and see what comes.
This day is for everyone who would like to explore how spirituality and creativity can go together.
The cost is £32 per person which includes refreshments and lunch.
