This inner guidance system will naturally guide us to the people, places and teachings that will help us most. Listen to your inner voice to know what requests to make! Don’t wait one minute longer for the healing to begin! When we are congruent with our thoughts, words and actions, balance, well-being and true fulfilment and happiness are made manifest with grace and ease.  With the healing power of Snake, we can transmute poison, negativity, and limiting ideas while learning the wonders of the life force and its flow in the body.If you are joining us in the lodge, please bring a cushion and lap cloth for floor sitting and your drums and rattles

Please do bring along your Sacred Braid for this month – your word, Animal Totem and Sacred Path card.

Bear Paw 3 smallIn community, people used to craft together. This Open Creative Evening is an opportunity for us to come together in community and create! When we create, we come into alignment with Spirit, our creations come straight from our Orenda and become tangible Spirit in our lives. We will work in a sociable way but also in Ceremony with Sacred intent.

This little medicine bag on the right is one of my creative projects. What’s yours? 

Come early, come late, or just come have a tea with us and watch the rest of us work but just show up! 

Please bring your ideas, all materials and all tools you will need to work on your project. 

 

Coming in September:

Drum Creation Workshop

Date and time TBD – Tayanita Medicine Lodge

In this beautiful Ceremony, you will create a Sacred Medicine piece in the form of a drum. Shamans follow the beat of the drum, the heartbeat of our Earth Mother, to journey to other realms of the Spirit World which is why some traditions call the drum ‘Spirit Horse’. This Sacred Medicine piece will be your friend, your guide, your healer and your teacher.

All materials are ethically sourced and we will honour the spirit of the animal and the standing people that go into our drums.

Materials to bring: A ~yard square red cloth (or red sarong or something to put your drum on as you are working), a dozen+ clothes line pegs, some close-fitting leather gloves (if you wish to help your hands from becoming so tired), a pair of needle nose pliers if you have them, a plastic ground cloth or tarp, a ruler to help visualise sizes, a very sharp knife, a very sharp pair of scissors that fit your hand well, a cutting board, a ~12 inch piece of coloured ribbon and an awl if you have one.

Please bring a packed lunch. You may bring food to share but we may all be eating at different times due to the fact that people work at different rates.
