Creativity Workshop: The Art of Gratitude
What if gratitude was not just a concept, but it was something you could actually touch with your hands? Connecting to a true sense of gratitude can bring so much more meaning to the holidays. In this workshop, we will explore creative ways to make gratitude fun…not just something we 'should' do, but something that we can't resist doing because it is so enjoyable and the effects are so powerful.
Creativity Workshop: The Art of Giving
"The holidays often emphasize giving and receiving of tangible wrapped products, giving from your heart is often the most meaningful gesture of all. In our busy lives, we often feel like we don't even have time for ourselves and our families, much less time that we could give others. But true gifts of service are simple, easy, and require very little of us. We just need to open our minds and imaginations.
In this workshop, you will be guided through creative exercises that explore the role of service in your life. You will both honor the ways you have given to others in the past, and discover new opportunities for sharing your gifts in the future.
Exploring the ways we make a difference needn't feel heavy or obligatory. In this workshop, we will look at service through a lens of creativity and fun, and discover the most meaningful gifts are often the most simple. Come join our fun feast and see the art of giving with new eyes."
