FINDING THE HOLY

 

Exploring Our Spirituality Through Art

 

An art retreat for women survivors of childhood sexual abuse

and sexual abuse or trauma at any age and in any way.

 

Saturday, APRIL 26, 2014 10:00am to 4:00pm

Rahamim Retreat and ClayHouse

 

Where was God? This a question that resides in many survivors of abuse. In this retreat we will do simple art meditations (requiring no artistic skill) in a safe setting with care-full boundaries. We will address this question and explore our own real spirituality.

Enfolded in Silence / A Story in Art of Healing from Sexual Trauma in Childhood

 

AND ART DISPLAY

 

MARCH 9, 2014, 4:00 PM to 6:00PM at Bairnwick Women's Center, Sewanee, TN 37375

 

The 7ft by 4ft cross on which the book is based (pictured) was shown at the signing with all the original paintings. My book was available at the signing for a considerably discounted price, but it can be ordered from Amazon at full price. I  read excerpts from my book and answered questions about the very serious issue of child sexual abuse. I  also displayed selections of my sculpture and painting. All were welcome.
