Divinely Crafted Connections with Diane Sears

In our morning class we'll make three unique crafts to help you connect to Spirit.  You know that divine state of mind you get into when you're creating something?  The state that makes you lose track of time, not hear someone talking to you, forget you're even YOU?  Or maybe you don't but you've heard about that and wish you could get there.  Either way, you will love this crafting event where you'll create tools enabling you to reach that heightened state of mind.  We'll make three really divine crafts: to connect with God we'll make a prayer box encircled with those sweet little mini pompoms; to connect with your higher self, a journal covered in instructor-lead doodling; and to connect with others, mailing envelopes that are unique, surprising, and personal.  No experience or artistic talent required.  

DATE & TIME: Saturday, May 5, 10 am - noon.  
LOCATION: Inner Compass Academy, 10901 Reed Hartman Hwy Ste 101, Cincinnati OH 45242.  
PRICE: $40 (includes materials). 
NOTE: Artistic talent not required; nor any experience with spirit communication/message work. Art materials provided.  

LUNCHBOX MESSAGES featuring Diane Sears, Michael Schlotterbeck & Kathryn Lakin

We will enjoy a "working" lunch between our morning and afternoon sessions of the day.  You are welcome to bring your lunch (there is a small refrigerator, but no microwave, in the classroom), or you can order (from Panera's before our morning class begins) a box lunch, which we will have delivered.  We are calling it a "working" lunch, but the instructors will be doing most of the work—that is, the spirit art and message work, which is a labor of love for them!  Your primary job will be to claim the messages that are yours. 

DATE & TIME: Saturday, May 5, noon - 1 pm.  
LOCATION: Inner Compass Academy, 10901 Reed Hartman Hwy Ste 101, Cincinnati OH 45242.  
PRICE: The messages are free; you'll simply need to bring or buy your lunch. 
GUEST PRESENTERS: Diane Sears, Kathryn Lakin & Michael Schlotterbeck.  
NOTE: Open to participants of the Saturday morning or afternoon classes. 


Creating Spirit Collages with Michael Schlotterbeck

In our early afternoon class, we will explore Collage - a fun, easy art form that lets you tap into your creativity and intuition to create art work.  Collage creates a communication link between you and spirit.  Using images from magazines, we will tap into this link and create visual spirit cards that can be used in message work.  In the first part of the class, we will create the Spirit Collage Cards.  The second part of the class will focus on interpretation of the images and delivering the message from spirit.  This is a perfect class for exploring spirit art - with or without art experience - as well as a wonderful opportunity to deepen your individual work with symbolism.  All supplies will be included; however you are encouraged to bring a few magazines to use for images.  No previous art experience or skill is needed.  

DATE & TIME: Saturday, May 5, 1:15 - 3:15 pm.  
LOCATION: Inner Compass Academy, 10901 Reed Hartman Hwy Ste 101, Cincinnati OH 45242.  
PRICE: $40 (includes materials).
GUEST INSTRUCTOR: Michael Schlotterbeck.  
Artistic talent not required; some experience with message work helpful. Art materials provided.  



In our final class of the afternoon, we will use paper, charcoal, acrylic paint and other items as tools to connect and communicate with Spirit. Heighten your intuition as you gain insight into questions you have for yourself and others.  We’ll explore the drawings we create through different perspectives, symbols and sharing. This is a technique you can take home and use again and again to stay connected to Spirit in a fun and creative way.  Artistic talent is not required, although some experience with spirit communication is helpful.  Art materials provided; you may want to bring an apron or wear suitable clothing for doing artwork.

DATE & TIME: Saturday, May 5, 3:30 - 5:30 pm.  
LOCATION: Inner Compass Academy, 10901 Reed Hartman Hwy Ste 101, Cincinnati OH 45242.  
PRICE: $40 (includes materials). 
GUEST INSTRUCTOR: Kathryn Lakin.  
NOTE: Artistic talent not required; experience with message work helpful. Art materials provided; wear suitable clothing.
