Eyes of the Heart: Prophetic Art Workshop: What is prophetic art? Can you do it? How can you use it in your church and community? Join me for a full-day workshop exploring the history, contemporary practice, and hands-on creation of prophetic art. Whether you draw stick figures or professional portraits (or don’t draw at all!) be released into greater creativity as you learn to partner with Holy Spirit and align with the Creator’s heart. I’ve taught prophetic art on several continents, and it has been an immense joy to see the varied and beautiful ways we can open the eyes of their hearts. Come play in the Presence!

Deep Travel Workshops: I love co-leading these multi-day writing workshops around the world. Join a Deep Travel adventure and discover that “the perfect sojourn is an elixir of camaraderie with independence, effort and relaxation, the exotic with the familiar, structure with serendipity—all accompanied with friendships forged over great food and wine.” We’ve found that “places speak best through the people who live in them, and so we link up with the photographers, winemakers, innkeepers, writers, chefs and residents that bridge us into the heart of a place….The goal of Deep Travel is to experience a place as fully as we can. We look forward to traveling deeply with you!”

Poets & Painters is a writing and painting workshop brought to you by Mindy Carpenter and Anna Elkins. Join us for occasional workshops around Southern Oregon. No experience or supplies required. Just bring yourself and a sense of fun, and you will create a finished poem and an 8″ x 10″ painting.

Vignettes in the Vineyard In writing, a vignette is a short impressionistic scene, an illustration, a description. It captures a moment or detail. The French word vignette literally means “little vine.” I like to teach this class in a vineyard, where you’ll craft a vignette of your own—a useful skill for most any writing desires, including blogs and social media. In addition to classes I schedule, I’m happy to do a bespoke workshop for you and your friends at your favorite vineyard! [2-hour class available for booking]

Poetry of Pilgrimage “Pilgrims are poets who create by taking journeys”—Richard R. Niebuhr.

What is the difference between “see” and “seek?“ What is the quest at the heart of the question? This class will explore where writing takes us by delving beneath our surface impressions to the underglimmers, the Spirit-aquifers, and the paths of the heart. It is there—deep into the interior roads—where we make pilgrimage to the sacred with our words. [2-hour class, available for booking]
