Expressing the spirit

STAGE THREE:

Spirituality - Stage 1

Participants use this drawing to get into the spiritual flow through colouring, thinking of what the image reminds them of – does any part of the image connect to them culturally or spiritually? Does it reflect their feelings? Perhaps there are parts of the image that give them conflicting feelings of joy, fear, boredom, confusion. Have they had any dreams about these types of images, or that they feel relate to the search for meaning? Do they see different possible journeys through the image? Which path would they choose? Do the religious edifices help or hinder the journey? Where does the journey end? Perhaps they are reminded of myths, stories and fairy tales, which they can think about as they colour.

Spirituality - Stage 2

In this drawing the image has been simplified, so that participants can explore their own search for meaning. They start by treating the drawing like an inkblot, turning it round and looking from different aspects, seeing if any new shapes or symbols emerge. They also explore if they are drawn to any particular path or way through the drawing. They also add their own symbols, shading, people, animals, characters from mythology and religious texts.

Spirituality - Stage 3

This page gives participants space to make a note of symbols, memories and dreams conjured up by religion and spirituality . they can draw their own image, create a collage from other images and symbols, make written notes, adding stories and myths, and exploring the meaning of these and their symbols from other sources. Every symbol has its own meaning for us as individuals. This puts them in touch with how comfortable they are with exploring their own journey searching for the deeper meaning of existence. It is ok to feel some dark and scary things – they can be recorded in the workshop. This section is also helpful for a positive exploration into the depths and complexities of one's relationship to spirituality , culture and meaning.
