We will be weaving Native American dreamcatchers with willow, beads, feathers, pebbles and shells, and adorning them with our objects of power. We will also share stories and songs while at it. Children under 8 are welcome to join with an older person's assistance.
In the native traditions, the circle represents the unbroken wholeness from which we draw our power and strength. Within the circle, we have the ability to connect to each other and to Mother Earth. The Dreamcatcher represents the Web of Life, and it is a powerful protective allay.
Materials will be provided. You are wlecome to bring your personal items, such as feathers, beads, ties and crystals, to adorn your dreamcatcher.
Family/siblings/friends discounts and sliding scale are available, inquire at email@example.com
