Participants will engage in a group conversation sharing moments of spiritual significance in their lives. We will be exploring what symbols/images have represented those moments. Bringing those symbols/images into concrete form will create a reminder of our connection to Spirit. Arla uses a unique art form she developed, which she calls “coil drawing,” which will be demonstrated for participants to use.

This is an opportunity to create a personal symbol or image using polymer clay. The Huichol Indian yarn paintings, created by shamans, will be the inspiration.
