“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

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
