“Creative Spirit Gatherings are a huge blessing! Through music, meditation, and art journaling, Rev. Jen guides us with tender loving care to express ourselves in our art journals. I am not an artist. Rev. Jen explains a variety of ways to art journal for all skill levels and abilities. We have explored the topics of self-nurturing, planting seeds, light, and gratitude, to name just a few. I find this time to be so beneficial to my health and well-being. During this time, I am able to set aside my worries and concerns and focus on the gifts and blessings being received. I discover that as I work in my art journal, my body relaxes and I am smiling. At the end of our two hours together, I feel uplifted and lighter.” -Terry Lummer, New Jersey, online program participant

Rev. Jen’s Story

“About the same time I began my spiritual journey in my mid-twenties, I came across the concept of Visual Journals in a book on art therapy. I began using this creative outlet to explore how different spiritual teachings resonated with my heart. When my mind was too fidgety to sit for meditation, I rested on the page making swirls with crayons. If I was feeling anxious about an upcoming event, I smeared paint around for release. In times when I didn’t know what step to take next, I let guidance come to me through intuitive collage.

This combination of creative expression and spiritual exploration was life changing. I noticed physical healing as  my constant allergies seemed to disappear; the drama released from old family dynamics, making weekly phone calls something to look forward to instead of dread; I gained clarity and confidence to pursue my dreams; and I leaned into living life from a new sense of peace and love. Experiencing first hand the transforming power of this combination of creativity and spirituality, my new mission became to share these tools with others. It would be my pleasure to share them with you through Creative Spirit Gathering!”

– Rev. Jeniffer Hutchins, founder of Unity Arts Ministry

Each of these doorways will be a new pathway to writing our stories while falling in love with our lives and the dance we do each and every day with the Divine.

This is more than a creative writing e-course, it’s a magnificent experience designed for those who love to laugh, connect and create with wild abandon.

When: Thursday evenings starting January 13th from 6pm-7:30pm CT.

We will connect on a Zoom dancefloor each week and before we depart you will receive a fun activity to take with you till we meet again.

Rev. Jen’s Story

“About the same time I began my spiritual journey in my mid-twenties, I came across the concept of Visual Journals in a book on art therapy. I began using this creative outlet to explore how different spiritual teachings resonated with my heart. When my mind was too fidgety to sit for meditation, I rested on the page making swirls with crayons. If I was feeling anxious about an upcoming event, I smeared paint around for release. In times when I didn’t know what step to take next, I let guidance come to me through intuitive collage.

This combination of creative expression and spiritual exploration was life changing. I noticed physical healing as  my constant allergies seemed to disappear; the drama released from old family dynamics, making weekly phone calls something to look forward to instead of dread; I gained clarity and confidence to pursue my dreams; and I leaned into living life from a new sense of peace and love. Experiencing first hand the transforming power of this combination of creativity and spirituality, my new mission became to share these tools with others. It would be my pleasure to share them with you through Creative Spirit Gathering!”

– Rev. Jeniffer Hutchins, founder of Unity Arts Ministry

Creative Writing – Dancing With the Divine E-Course @ Online / Unity Arts Ministry
Jan 20 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm

Class Description

Dates: January 13, 20, 27 & Feb 3, 2022

Dancing with the Divine is a creative writing program like no other. It is a joyful invitation to celebrate the beauty that exists within you, your stories and your extraordinary connection to the Divine.

Over the course of 4 weeks, we will engage our senses as we play with photography and color, explore the breath in small, beautiful yoga movements you can do in your chair, and engage our minds in meditation. Each of these doorways will be a new pathway to writing our stories while falling in love with our lives and the dance we do each and every day with the Divine.

This is more than a creative writing e-course, it’s a magnificent experience designed for those who love to laugh, connect and create with wild abandon.

When: Thursday evenings starting January 13th from 6pm-7:30pm CT.

We will connect on a Zoom dancefloor each week and before we depart you will receive a fun activity to take with you till we meet again.

Testimonials

“I love to write. I never thought I could truly tell a story, but I did. Natasha Reilly’s encouragements and constructive criticisms allowed me to believe that I had a compelling story to tell. I am now a published author, and it wouldn’t have materialized if it were not for Natasha.” –Jen Furer, Author Out of Status

“These activities pushed me to the next level by allowing me to let go, be vulnerable and play with words, pictures and materials. Natasha’s insight and passion encouraged me to play more fearlessly. I was free to be me and being ME is AWESOME.” – Yvette V., Coordinator, Graduate Studies Teachers of Students Who Are Blind, Dominican College

“Through working with Natasha on both my writing and with yoga I have found greater confidence and poise in my public speaking and presentation skills. In addition, her writing coaching has helped me in preparing presentations. I truly appreciate her thoughtful guidance on all of the best practices of storytelling and moving an audience along with you, as well as keeping them engaged. I’m excited to take on bigger roles in my career now that I’ve partnered with Natasha!” -Jennifer Maroney, SVP, Customer Experience and Engagement at FCB Health
