During times of life transition and spiritual transformation, we may seek opportunities to pause and nourish our souls. This 8-week, experiential, ecumenical women’s retreat offers various forms of collage to put our inner process on paper. Through Visio Divina or divine seeing, we will have opportunities to see the movement and pattern of the Holy Spirit through this season of our lives. No artistic experience required; all creative materials provided. Each week, Tina Karagulian offers a heart space of music, creativity, and reflection. Participants are encouraged to bring a light jacket/shawl, reusable water bottle, and writing materials. Limited slots available. Marian Mission Hall at Oblate School of Theology, 285 Oblate Drive, San Antonio, TX 78216. For information or to register by phone, contact Noemy at (210) 341-1366 EXT 212.

2018 “Art Heals Hearts” Power of Expression - 6th Annual Art Exhibition & Art Sale.
All proceeds will benefit the Children’s Expressive Therapeutic Arts Program at The Ecumenical Center which offers healing through the visual arts, therapeutic writing, rhythms and music therapy.
Through its program, “Art Heals Hearts”, The Ecumenical Center provides, at no cost to participants, a safe, soothing and calm environment where children are taught the techniques of expression through art. This therapy has proven to be an excellent tool for children to find their voice and articulate their needs with oversight of certified and experienced therapists. We also take our music and art “On the Road” and help those in need: we worked with children in disaster areas when affected by hurricane, floods, tragic shootings.
The Ecumenical Center – for 51 years, The Center of Hope – offers a better perspective: on education; on ethics; on counseling; on health. It is a place of healing and support to those who are in need of emotional, physical and spiritual help.
The rainbow-haired woman in this collage comes from the painting, titled "Empowered," created in 2007 by watercolor artist Rita Loyd, featured in the 2017 We'Moon Stardust calendar.

Henri Nouwen is universally acclaimed as one of the most popular and influential spiritual writers of the 20th century. The author of more than 60 books, he taught at both Harvard and Yale and lectured extensively around the world. After nearly two decades of teaching at academic institutions, Nouwen went on to work with mentally and physically handicapped people at the L’Arche Daybreak community in Richmond Hill, Ontario. Perhaps more than any other person, he was helpful in having spirituality accepted as an academic discipline and for making spirituality popular in Protestant and Evangelical circles, while writing as a Roman Catholic. He was a complex man – an artist, a restless searcher, a hopeless romantic, a deeply committed Christian, a man of deep prayer, and a priest. All this helped shape his writings, both in depth and in breadth. To meet and read Henri Nouwen is to be more-properly introduced to yourself.
This is an Institute for the struggling and the restless, as well as for the prayerful and the faith-filled. Come join us for three days of drinking from the deep well that was Henri Nouwen.

chooses to continue loving. As such, forgiveness is an on-going process.

Why should we forgive?
How do we forgive ourselves and others?

How does forgiveness transform pain into renewed health of body, mind and soul?
We invite you to explore forgiveness in a holistic way through prayer, silence, body movement, imagery,guided meditation, creativity, and ritual.
