Art Journal Examen
As we enter into a new season, our community and our world is beginning to open up and explore what this new normal might look like. We’d like to create space to also welcome the Presence of God in the midst of all this through the ancient practice of Examen and then express what the Spirit is stirring in us through art journaling.
If you have some simple art supplies at home and can use a computer or phone to use a program called Zoom, you can join us! This will be a way to connect and listen and share together.
Mindy BraunExecutive Director of Journey Center Santa Rosa
Mindy was drawn to the Journey Center because of the radical hospitality and oasis of rest it provides while at the same time having a clear mission to bring healing and wholeness through encountering the Holy.
Mindy graduated with the 2021 Cohort of the Journey Center Association’s Spiritual Director Formation Program and also became the Executive Director of Journey Center Santa Rosa. Her passion is to create safe, sacred spaces for all people to experience love and belonging. One way she does this is through facilitating various groups – God in Nauture hikes, Poetica Pro Anima (Poetry for the Soul), Art Journal Examen, racial reconciliation groups, and Oasis for Activists.
Her favorite spiritual practices are either art journaling, tending her garden, or hiking in the forest.
