Icons of the Heart


Description

Icons are sacred windows into the divine. They reveal genuine visions of divine beings and holy ancestors. Making icons of sacred beings for ourselves and our community enables essential myths of many traditions to continually inspire us. We invite you to create a painted icon of a figure or symbol that has personal significance for you. In order to do this, we will learn the art of egg tempera. In gradual steps, we will conjure our own sacred icon layer by layer by painting, praying, and meditating with the sacred presences that we have first met in our own soul. This course is for people of all spiritual traditions: No formal art training is required.
