Tuesday May 19th 6:30-8:30pm
**This workshop is a fundraiser for the Youth Bear Harvest event in autumn 2020.**
When you make a medicine bag, you make a commitment to Spirit and to yourself to live in a good way. A medicine bag is a symbol of your personal medicine to heal, help and honor yourself.
Come spend an afternoon in peaceful circle, smudge and pray for guidance in creating a bag just for you. Tea, smudge and all materials are provided. Everyone is welcome to join us. We are wheelchair accessible.
Cost: There is a materials cost of $35. This covers the cost of tools & leather, workshop space rental. All proceeds go towards the Youth Bear Harvest, which teaches indigenous youth about the traditions of bear medicine without causing harm to living bears. Please contact Kalyn@KodiakHerbal.com to make a donation or to find out more.
We’ll craft our bags from cloth or leather and decorate them. Teachings of ways to honor and show respect for your medicine bag are a part of this workshop.
Medicine Bag Making teachings in this workshop are not aligned with any particular tradition. I do have permission to share these teachings from my elder. I wish to share the gift of knowledge, growth and healing I’ve received from holding a medicine bag. Proceeds go to rent, supplies and to supporting the bear harvest event.
