In this retreat participants will follow step-by-step insturctions and complete an icon of St. John the Baptist. The icon we will paint will be done in a variation of the Russian traditions. Eash session will be conducted in a manner that is both mindful and meditative.

There will be daily studio time, morning and evening prayer, communal sharing and guidance by the iconographer, Michael Moran.
