DESCRIPTION OF THE WORKSHOP: Old
stories can be surprising connected with our
present day life. Who are you in this story?
Are you watching out for a star to lead you?
Or are you a star yourself to show others the
way? The way to?
We would like to take you on this journey,
discovering your own search and destiny …
perhaps…
Before meeting online, we will send the
participants some small exploratory
exercises to do on their own before entering
our virtual bibliodrama room. Between the
two sessions you will get some little
exercises to reflect on what happened and
to prepare the next meeting.
We will use creative material and we will try
to connect over the borders in the different
rooms spread over Europe. We will use
colours and body movement, and objects
from your daily life.. Sometimes intense,
sometimes playful with a wink of the
clown…

DESCRIPTION OF THE WORKSHOP:
”A light is shining” is not just a line from the
Bible, nor just some words that a pure child
might say to his mom, looking at the Sky in a
silent winter night…
”A light is shining” is not just a workshop
prepared with love for God and love for
people from all over the world, or just an
online meeting which we hope that would
bring together more ”light-seekers” in a
peaceful Sunday afternoon…
”A light is shining” is more than all of these,
because… we think we all agree that for real
A LIGHT it is SHINING in any Heart ,in every
little cell, in every little living form!
We invite you to discover the Light and to
enjoy our Shining!

for answers to those questions with the help of the Bible.
