Art Sozo is a new way to connect your emotions to the heart of God and allow His healing to take place. The activity of painting helps to bypass roadblocks and allow God‘s truth to shine through on canvas and speak deeply into hearts. No artist experience is required. In this training you will learn the techniques used for the Art Sozo Workshop. The goal of the training is to provide a deeper understanding of the Art Sozo process and give you information and hands–on experience to prepare you to lead your own workshops! Gail Spooner, Pastoral Counselor at Bethel Transformation Center and founder of Art Sozo, will lead this event.
It will be located at Liberty Church at 1155 S. Sturdy Road in Valparaiso Indiana. The sessions are Friday July 27th 6-9PM CST, and Saturday July 28th 9AM-5PM CST.
The cost is $150 and includes training in Art Sozo, Art Sozo experience, all art supplies, training manual, coffee, tea, snacks, and lunch on Saturday. You only need to bring a bible and journal if you desire. Book a hotel ASAP due to other events going on in Valparaiso that weekend.
“God spoke to me about my roadblock, my belief in the lie that He isn‘t almighty and able to do all things. Through the simplicity of using paint and a canvas I was able to bypass my ‘over thinking‘ and discover God‘s truth.” Aubrey, CA
“Dealt with a life–long issue that‘s never come up in a Sozo before. I think using art allowed it to surface.” Barbara, CA
“I was able to connect with God in a deeper way, especially since I am a very visual person. Things came up I didn‘t expect and beauty poured out through healing.” Anonymous, CA
“The exercises were easy and can be done by anyone regardless of artistic skill. I appreciated the fact that you kept telling us that this was about process not product. That put me at ease.” Anonymous, CA
Our ministry, Agape Celebration, hosted an Art Sozo Training. It was truly a wonderful experience for me. I found it to be healing in unexpected ways, and God has unleashed a bountiful supply of new freedom in my life. Thank you Gail for a wonderful well led workshop and training. God is working through you to bring miracles into the lives of others.
Gail is a pastor and author from Bethel Church in Redding, California. She serves as a Sozo counselor at the Bethel Transformation Center, specializing in Art Sozo & Financial Sozo. Her passion for bringing freedom and connection to God through art led her to create the Art Sozo Workshop. Gail’s background in counseling and therapeutic recreation, as well as certification as an Art 4 Healing facilitator through Chapman University, have uniquely equipped her to develop the Art Sozo process. While attending Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry, she was given the prophetic word; “You will develop an army of artists who will heal the hearts of the world” and she loves seeing this prophecy come true! She leads trainings to educate others in the Art Sozo technique. Contact Gail at Gails@bethelsozo.com.
Sozo is a New Testament Greek verb meaning to save, heal, deliver, make well or whole. The Sozo ministry was developed to provide gentle, yet powerful inner healing and deliverance in a safe and honoring atmosphere in which the Godhead is allowed to direct the means of ministering. In this unique ministry, the main goal is to get to the root of those things hindering personal connections with Father God, Jesus, and Holy Spirit. As the root causes are identified and removed, the possibility to live life differently opens up.
Facilitate the healing of past wounds to break strongholds
Replace lies with truth
Close “doors” that are open to the enemy
Connect people to the Godhead in a more intimate way
The process of Sozo is caring, compassionate, gentle and honoring.
Sozo is not a counseling session but a time of interacting with Father, Son and Holy Spirit. A Sozo session is conducted by two team members (and occasionally a third team member trainee). The Sozo team will sit down with you and, with the help of the Holy Spirit, walk you through various healing “tools” on the road to freedom and wholeness.
