Medicine bags are ancient tools used to carry and protect your sacred herbs and other sacred objects. In this class you will learn how to craft your own medicine bag. Please bring anything you would like to add, crystals, feathers, beads, sage, tobacco, cedar, copal etc. Each medicine bag is imbued with your own special energy. Together we will create the sacred container that empowers your creative process. Please arrive on time and bring water and a snack.
This idea was created with the intention of bringing people together, to work with our hands in a meditative way that promotes inner peace. These traditional crafts were given to all people, to return us to the heart of humanity, mother earth and the heart of the cosmos. All of these arts are here to unlock doors within us, and allow us to relax into the beauty of life.
