    Julianne will present this workshop on beauty in the afternoon of a full day workshop, together with Thomas Moore, author of Care of the Soul and many other books on cultivating the soul in everyday life. Please contact the Open Center to register for either the full day or half day. Renaissance philosophers placed a new emphasis on the value of life: personal experiences with nature, art, and love could be ways of communing with the Divine here and now. By contemplating earthly beauty, an individual could touch the Anima Mundi, the World Soul, flowing in and through all, thereby deepening levels of awareness and insight. Since then, others have followed the way of this wisdom teaching. This afternoon we will discuss ways to describe beauty, expanding our ability to experience beauty, allowing beauty to help us connect to the world around us, using memories of beauty to open portals to our inner world, and the aesthetic experience as a way to inspire our own creativity.
