January 16 -20, 2017 St. Christopher's Episcopal Church - Pensacola, Florida Iconographer Teresa Harrison will conduct a five-day Icon Writing Retreat at St. Christopher's Church. Writing icons is an ancient contemplative, spiritual practice dating back to the Early Christian church. Join this long line of iconographers in creating an icon in the traditional Byzantine style in a week-long workshop led by experienced teacher and iconographer Teresa Harrison.
Each day begins with a Eucharist service in the Episcopal tradition and includes intentional silence, listening to Gregorian chant, noon day prayer, group reflection and teachings on the history of icons and the practice of praying with icons. This time set apart is joyful, most often transformative and challenging, open to all faiths and to those with or without art experience. The Rev. Bob Graves will join Tema as chaplain for this retreat.
The cost of the workshop is $430.00, which includes instruction, all materials, and lunch each day. Class size is limited. Hours: 8:30 am - 4:00 pm each day.
