The SLO Botanical Garden Presents: Morning Altars with Day Schildkret

Saturday, May 14, 2022, 10:00 AM – 1:30 PM

Join internationally renowned author, teacher and artist, Day Schildkret of Morning Altars to learn how to use nature and art as a way to mark the special moments in our lives. Based on the practice conceived and popularized by Day’s first book, Morning Altars: A 7-Step Practice to Nourish Your Spirit through Nature, Art and Ritual, this workshop will guide you through Day’s unique seven-step practice and help you strengthen your skills of wonder, belonging, gratitude, creativity, wholeness and non-attachment. The first half of the workshop, we will be in the gardens — opening our eyes, our senses, and hearts while practicing the first two steps. The second half of the workshop, we will be making nature altars and dedicating them to all the celebrations, losses and changes that happened this past year, using art to tell our stories. The workshop will conclude with an altar art tour, where we go around and witness each other’s hearts and art.
