Join us for Spiritual Crafting, based upon SoulCollage® as developed by Seena B. Frost and presented in her book, SoulCollage® Evolving. We will meet from 3:45 to 8:00pm. No experience is necessary for this creative soul adventure!
In this expressive art form, participants use collage to create unique  soul-tending cards, each representing an energy of one’s ongoing life  story. This is a fun, engaging, and deeply illuminating process and full of personal reflections. This creative form of self-care doesn’t end, either!  You can continue to grow your deck over time as your life story  continues.

This time in the Forest will allow you an opportunity to meet others using SoulCollage cards as a way to go deeper within .  We will select images, create cards and see “what is up” for our exploration into our psyche.

Bring your journal, images, glue stick, your SoulCollage® deck (if you have one) and be ready to enter new ways of expressing yourself.

Absolutely no art experience is necessary. Anyone able to manage scissors and glue can create beautiful cards and enjoy sharing them with others!
For a fee of $20, you will have time and space to create your Spiritual Crafting cards, as well as supper and the chance to participate in a silent meditation in serene surroundings. Give yourself the gift of time to discover your wisdom and change your world with Spiritual Crafting in the Forest of Peace.
For more information on the process, and an introductory video by Seena Frost, the creator of SoulCollage®, visit www.soulcollage.com.

September 15-17, 2017: Tulsa Zen Sangha Retreat

posted in: Events

The Tulsa Zen Sangha is Happy to Announce Our Weekend Meditation Retreat

“Cultivating Equanimity and an Upright Response in the Midst of Turbulent Times”

Location: Osage Forest of Peace

We are welcoming back our dharma sister, Patti Mitchell, as our teacher.

Patti is a recently ordained Soto Zen priest in the Shunryu Suzuki Roshi lineage and completed her second three month ango at Tassajara mountain monestary in April. Her heart teacher is Christina Lehnherr, a former abbess of San Francisco Zen Center.  She originally took Boddhisatva vows in the Tibetan Dzog Chen tradition in 1977 and had practiced in the Vipassana tradition for a number of years before finding her seat in Zen.  Her marketplace practice as a priest is somatically based and she has trained as a yoga teacher, specializing in working with both cancer patients and those in recovery from addiction. She continues to be inspired by those beings who embody practice in a warm, open hearted way, honoring all beings and traditions as equal and unique.

This silent retreat will include meditation, teaching, periods of rest, guided relaxation, and yoga.  Private interviews with Patti about your practice will also be offered.
