This workshop is a hands-on event where each participant will create a basic shaman medicine bag. A medicine bag is an ancient energy tool, once used only by the spiritual leaders and healers of a community. This is an introductory event open to everyone, for beginning or master levels.
Our medicine bag workshop brings this ancient tool into our day-to-day life. We can use the medicine bag to draw to us the soul qualities we seek, to guide us, strengthen us, and invite those who nurture us into our lives.
Attendance at this workshop is $10, and you can join us as an observer for the synergy of the workshop, stories, and social aspect. We encourage making a medicine bag as well, and we will have kits available for $15. This includes many ingredients for your medicine bag, many unique and fun items! Additional items such as gems and rare items will be available for purchase. You can also bring small personal items to add to your medicine bag, or you can change or add to your medicine bag later.
A limited number of drum kits will be available and pre-registration is required for drum making. The cost for a drum kit and the drum making class is $115 for the 14" drum and $125 for the 16" drum. Drum beaters are available for $10-$30 depending on size and materials.
