Making of a Personal Medicine Bag

2 Workshop dates to choose from:
Saturday, Nov. 10th or Sunday, Nov. 11th, 2018

The making of a personal Medicine Bag is a special ceremony. The contents,  prayers, even the very fabric of the bag are unique and full of meaning.

We’ll craft our bags from cloth or leather, and decorate them according to guidance received from a short journey. A  cleansing and blessing will follow to consecrate our new medicine bags. Teachings of ways to honor and show respect for your medicine bag and the spirit behind it will be part of this ceremony.

Medicine Bag Making teachings and ceremonies in this workshop are not aligned with any particular tradition. I am not an elder. I am a medicine bag carrier for 11 years who wishes to share the gift of knowledge, growth and healing I’ve received from holding a medicine bag, so you can benefit from being closer to spirit. Proceeds go to rent, supplies and sponsoring attendees with disabilities.

This workshop is wheelchair accessible and open to everyone.
