SDI seeks to encourage, understand and engage with creative work informed by or embodying contemplative practice, spiritual direction and companionship. Art will be displayed for contemplation and discussion, participatory art projects will be available for all to create and enjoy, and artists will be highlighted as learners, teachers, and spiritual practitioners.
More information coming soon. For now, enjoy this slideshow of our artists and offerings from our 2019 Conference in Bellevue, Washington, USA.
Nick Wagner, the Editor of Presence Journal recently wrote, “In days past, people would search for meaning in religion. Doctrine and ritual made sense of the insensible in our lives. While for some of us that’s still true, increasingly people are declaring themselves to be ‘none’ when asked to identify their faith tradition. They are…’spiritual independents’…and one place these spiritual independents find ultimate meaning is in the world of art.”
