Join us for a day in which we will practice visio divina through photography! What is visio divina? Visio divina (divine seeing) is a method of praying through images. It explores how God communicates with us through sight.
We will begin with a group meditation using visio divina, followed by a short instruction on how to practice visio divinia with a camera. We will then move on to explore our surroundings. During this time, we will capture images that call to us. Eventually we will come together, upload our pictures, and reflect on them as a group. Guided by Debra Donnelly-Barton.
Please bring a camera or phone that can take photos.
