“Three Seeds of Ecological Spirituality” … Come for an evening of shared reflection and gentle spiritual practice, as the Rev. Shawn Sanford Beck offers us the “three seeds” of Christian Animism, Green Priestcraft, and Kything.  For many, these will be entirely new concepts and forms of spirituality, each of which has the potential to deepen our relationship with the living Earth and all the more-than-human neighbours with whom we share this precious life.  As these seeds spring to life within the soil of your soul, you may find yourself on the journey of becoming a chaplain to creation!

Participants will learn about the exciting and rebellious history of collage, try out various materials and techniques, and create their own original collage (or two, or three!). Emerging and established artists will come away with a new skill set to build into or support their existing practices, and others will enjoy the playful and versatile medium, which requires no previous skill. Collage is for everyone. No experience necessary.

Aimee-Beth Martens is a book dealer and artist from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. She received her BFA from the University of Saskatchewan, where she started making collages even though she was supposed to be making other things.

We all get to a place in our lives when we feel we are either too old or too young, too frumpy, too tired, not enough…the list goes on. That is why it is so important to take time to reflect, remember and capture the story of your beautiful soul and all that you have accomplished in spite of the obstacles life put in your path.

Come join us in claiming the story of the heroine or hero you truly are, remembering all those times you did it anyway (This is not a writing class so, no personal composition is required.)

Through shared conversations, personal reflections and artsy fun you will have a chance to remember and claim YOUR STORY and leave with your own unique personal copy. It will be a reminder of your personal bravery and awesomeness during the rough patches of your life, bringing you back to your strength and courage on those days when you might forget.

      "Be the change you want to see in the world."

Part 1:  Seeing Who You Are 

Part 2:  Embracing All You Can Become (will be offered in the 2023 Fall Class Term)

At this point in our world’s history, it’s hard not to feel stress.  Conflicts, threats, and catastrophes all seem just around the corner.  Many people are asking:  How can we help the world become a better place?  How can we help our children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren have a better world for their future?


The answers aren’t simple.  But each of us has a part to play.  Each of us can be part of the change we want to see in the world.


In this two-part workshop series, Simon Lasair, an internationally known and award-winning researcher into spirituality and spiritual health, will guide you into understanding how you can make your part of our world a better place.


It begins by seeing who you are, truthfully and completely.  It moves into taking responsibility for who you are honestly and courageously.  And it continues by embracing all you can become, with joy and gratitude.


Using stories, research findings, and humour, Simon will teach you specific practices you can use to know yourself better and to recognize how you can bring positive change to our world.


These workshops will help you start your journey into being the change you want to see in our world.
