Healing HeART Experience: Spirituality and Art: Companioning the Deepening Process

Are you seeking something a bit deeper than simply an art class?  Are you wanting to explore your feelings about God (good, bad or indifferent), but just haven’t taken the time to do so?  If the answer is yes to either of these questions, I believe I have what you’ve been searching for!

Healing HeART dovetails Spiritual Companioning with Hands-on Art. Mediums offered include watercolor and gouache, clay, drawing with pen and ink, journaling, and mixed media. 

Come and spend time with artist Ellen Sweetman and me, sharing, conversing, learning, creating. No judgments, no criticizing – simply self-exploration and art time.  We are offering you time, space and place to find the spiritual and creative YOU!

Classes are offered to groups of up to five participants, 4 sessions of 3 hours each. Come with a friend or meet new ones. Click Here! to register, choose your 4-session class, and make payment, or read on for more detailed information!

  • Each session is split between Spiritual Companioning and Hands-on Art.
  • Session 1: Introduction to Spiritual Companioning, Values Discovery, Intention-Setting, Hands-on Art Time.
  • Sessions 2 and 3: Spiritual Companioning followed by Hands-on Art Time, during which you will build on skills you learned at Session 1.
  • At the final session, everything will come together! Our last Spiritual Companioning followed by our final Hands-on Art Time.  A closing ritual and sending prayers will bring our 4-session Healing HeART Experience to an end.

The four-session Healing HeART experience includes Spiritual Companioning, Art Lessons and Guidance, studio time, and all art materials.  Cost is $289 per person. Classes are offered Tuesday mornings, Tuesday evenings and Thursday evenings.

Spiritual Direction – 1:1 Sessions / Group Sessions

Spiritual Direction is the art of listening with the ear of God to another as they share their story. Whether you are experiencing a major life transition or are simply seeking to gain a personal understanding of who you are in relationship with The Divine, consider Spiritual Direction as a step toward deepening and growing. Find evidence of God in the everyday – learn to listen to the subtle call to relationship from within your deepest self.

It would be my honor to listen gratefully, compassionately, fully engaged and without judgment.  My areas of expertise include (but are not limited to):

  • Corporate / Workplace
  • Creative Arts
  • Divorce
  • Dying / Death / Illness / Hospice
  • Grief and Loss
  • Low Income
  • LGBTQ
  • Pregnancy Loss / Child Loss
  • Seekers without Spiritual Affiliation
  • Women’s Issues

All of creation has been made in the image of the Divine. I am mindful that each encounter with person, place or thing may have far more worth than anything else I may possess or accomplish any day. I am also mindful that each encounter is an opportunity to offer – and to receive – Grace.

Sessions are 1 hour and no one is turned away because of inability to pay. Come to 4 Angels and experience a little Grace.  Call 612-803-9159 to learn more or to schedule a time.

House, Studio, or Space Blessings

Also known as a house healing, house clearing, house cleansing or space clearing, this type of blessing is a spiritual ritual intended to clear the space of any negative forces that may be present, to make clear the intention for the space, and to bless and protect the inhabitants of the home or space.

homeBlessings may also be performed in order to “heal” a residence after an unpleasant occurrence or tragedy has taken place within it. These types of blessings are very dear to my heart and I feel that, when ritualized, the blessing carries on and forward in a most positive way.

I would love to hear what you would like included in your house blessing and to design a blessing personalized just for you!

Memorial Services, Spreading-of-Ashes Services, Infant Naming and Commitment Services

Memorial Services and / or Spreading-of-Ashes Services can take place any time after the death of your loved one, and may be performed indoors or outside, at whatever setting you wish (park, cemetery, home, etc.).

Naming and Commitment Services are a way to honor miscarriages or stillborns; the intention is the promotion of healing and peace through closure. My experience is personal and I humbly offer this service for anyone who has suffered the same loss, no matter how long ago it may have occurred.

It would be an honor for me to assist you in writing and conducting a Service. I prefer to meet one-on-one in order to work out elements for inclusion in the service and to get to know you and your loved one through your eyes and your experience.

Services may be performed at a park, cemetery, by the river, in a favorite tavern, or at your home.  Please let me know how I can best serve you and your family.
