St. Leo Abbey, Florida, USA, Monday, February 9, 2009 to Sunday, February 15, 2009, will be the site for an Icon Workshop with Master Iconographer Philip Zimmerman.

I have a growing understanding of icons and that has led to a much deeper appreciation of their place in my life.

I received the flyer for the workshop at the last oblates' meeting at St. Leo Abbey — I have no association with the workshop in any way — and am just passing it along to those on the Internet who might not have heard about this workshop.

The sheet gives these contacts for more information:

  1. I went to an Icon workshop many years ago. It is fascinating. I never knew how much prayer and meaning go into each icon. It is much more than an art. There is so much symbolism and meaning within each image. WOW!
