Due to a lack of critical mass at this time, the Dreaming Of Lions course, scheduled for spring has been cancelled. We do still hope to host the program in the future. The Dreaming Of Lions introduction session for February 4th has also been cancelled
What is Dreaming of Lions?
It’s a 12 week interactive, innovative learning experience that explores the spiritual journey. We do this through reflecting on the Dreaming Of Lions narrative drawings (by James Tughan), the Biblical story of Patriarchal Joseph, and the written and visual journaling of our personal walks with God through the valleys of adversity that are inevitable in the Christian life.
This is an exploration of metaphor and visual language. We explore this “language” through visual art, music, film, a unique game board, puzzles, journaling and story-telling. There is a strong emphasis on scripture. All this is geared to help us understand how Jesus is speaking with us more often than we may realize and is speaking in languages of empathy and respect.
These discovered creative languages of God become an indispensable means of strengthening us and transforming us from being helpless sheep to maturing lions who are being prepared to rule with Him in a restored Creation. Put differently, “what do lions dream?”
All this is explored in small groups as a place of safety and trust. In this place, it soon becomes very evident that we all are different persons, with different gifts, different ways of seeing, different creative processes and ways of expressing that very special component of the image of God, creativity.
