Examples:


1. Noah, How do You Walk with God?

In this meditation, art and Bibliodrama workshop we walk as Noah, experience a direct connection to the animal and plant world, confront Noah’s choices and build an altar to acknowledge the past and embrace the future.


2. The Saga of Abraham and Sarah

We explore several moments in the life of Abraham and Sarah through movement and Bibliodrama and discover our own place  in the family today.

“Never before had I connected so deeply with the troubling story of Abraham, Sarah and Hagar, Now I will never think of it again without the intimate connection to my own life”

 3. Jacob's Dream

In this workshop we interpret Jacob’s dream through Bibliodrama, silk painting and music. As the dream story unfolds we will begin to understand our own spiritual journey and who is accompanying us.

“Wow, you taught me things I had no knowledge of”

Discover the Bones of Joseph and learn through Bibliodrama, storytelling and collage why this reconnection with the bones may be a pivotal moment in history and how it informs our choices for the future.


5. Mmmmm. Elim

Discover what Elim has to offer the Children of Israel after the flight from Egypt through art, musical improvisation and drama and examine the opportunities opening up for the group in this new found freedom.

This workshop allows the group to design and experience sacred space through art and Bibliodrama first as it was described in the Torah and then how it may be structured in our own lives today.


“I like how I can connect the bible story so closely to my own. It feels so real”

The biblical moment about to happen in this story is one of transition. The theme invites us to explore both this moment in the text and our own stories of transition. We will discover the qualities it takes to cross from one chapter of life to another. Our stories will provide the backdrop and momentum for the creation of a large collaborative painting.
