Creative Practices for Free Spirits

Free of charge

Sign up with Ami Hudson, 434.476.4111



Breathe new life into your spiritual practice and take away some fresh ways of prayer and reflection.

Creative meets monastic, these practices are deep enough to matter and simple enough to take away and implement on your own. On the agenda are drawing and doodling as prayer, a little peace and quiet, blowing bubbles as contemplation, an easy personal prayer walk and more.

Ami Hudson, M.Div., a professional spiritual director, will lead this event for adults.

Why focus on “free spirits”?  “A lot of my spiritual direction participants are creative and think of themselves as a little bit different, as a bit of an outsider from traditional church. Even the ones who are devoted church-goers.” Hudson added, “We’re all free, creative spirits anyway when it comes to our real, authentic selves.”

Those who consider themselves “spiritual but not religious” are encouraged to attend. This won’t be preachy but instead respectful of wherever people find themselves. Participate fully or just observe, it’s completely up to you.

The Episcopal Church’s Diocese of Southern Virginia, based in Norfolk, is funding this regional event through a grant.

“Creative Practices for Free Spirits” will be held on Sunday afternoon August 24 from 3:00- 5:00 pm at St. John’s Episcopal, 197 Mountain Road, Halifax, free of charge and open to the public. To sign up, contact Ami Hudson by phone at (434) 476-4111, through the website, or via the Facebook page “Spiritual Direction in Southern Virginia.”
