Tools For The Journey

presents this springs' sacred tool workshop-


Create Your Own
Gourd Rattle

 This is a full-day, creative ceremony in which we work intimately with the energies of gourds. Tree branches are used to make the rattle’s handle, and contained within our sacred tool we will place the medicine of rocks, corn, beans, shells, or other rattle-filling options. You’ll also have options for embellishing it, such as painting, carving, or leaving your gourd in its original form. We will discuss different ways to integrate the use of your new rattle into your life.  Because rattles are humankind's imitation of rain, they can be used for purifying, protection, cleansing, soul retrieval, and assisting in visionary work. The energies of the materials used to create the rattle add to this sacred tool’s blessing.

NATIVE HOOP DRUM AND HIDE RATTLE

The drum is a representation of the heartbeat. The rattle is human kinds imitation of rain.  Both of these tools are used around the world for healing, journeying, empowerment, celebration, ceremony, cleansing, meditation ... the list goes on.  Join us as we guide you into your own special relationship with creating and connecting with these sacred tools. You will learn how to honor the animal; create with ceremony, song, and intention; and deepen the relationship with your drum and rattle once they are birthed.
  On the first day of the workshop we will make the drum in full.  We will also cut out, sow, and stuff the rattle and choose its handle.  The two week break will allow them to dry.  When we come together again, we will complete the rattle, attach it's handle, make beaters and birth the drum together.  There will be time at the end for additional learning around care and use of these sacred items.

This is a day of creativity and ceremony. Our way of making the medicine bag comes from the Sundust Lineage.  At the end of this creative ceremony the power and energy will be sealed into the bag. This is not the type of medicine bag where you can switch out the contents.  Therefore, it helps to be thinking of what you want to have in your medicine bag and to bring those items with you. We will also do a journey during the workshop to discover exactly what will be included.  A variety of items will be provided for your use.
A medicine bag made in this way,simultaneously calls you back to your center and acts as a second skin offering strong protection.   It connects you to your spiritual power.
Creating strong energetic protection and a connection to your spiritual power
