The Artist's Rule


This twelve session fortnightly programme, led by Linda Courage, draws on the insights and practices of Benedictine spirituality to explore the interplay between contemplation and creativity. Through the programme we will explore together how the contemplative and creative parts of ourselves meet.

Each two-part session will be offered on Zoom with the hour between for
private reflection and creativity. An information sheet giving more detail about the program is available from the St Bede’s office.

You will need to purchase a copy of our primary text for the program: ’The Artist’s Rule’ by Christine Valters Paintner.

Linda is a member of the Abbey of the Arts and a coordinator for Living Spirituality Connections. She has a heart for encouraging and guiding others in practices which help to reconnect us to ourselves and restore our vitality and aliveness.
