Rattle Making Ceremony with Zoe Allison

$75.oo (materials included)
9:00 am –1:00 pm

The ancient rattle gives us access to the unseen realms and has been used to dispel illness, dis-ease and also during life’s many celebrations. The sound of the rattle is magic and the ritual use of it’s energy can move us to create a deeper place of connection to ceremony within us. You will create a rattle and charge it with your own energy to assist you in calling in and working with your own helpers, guides, teachers and protectors. We will use simple techniques of sewing, painting and dreaming to create from our own inner wisdom a place where the magic of the rattle can assist us. Whether your rattle is made of hide or gourds, it will include the beings of the tree people, the four leggeds, the sacred plant people and all our relations. We will give thanks to all the beings and Mother Earth who in her abundance has given us refuge with our spirit relations who come to assist us.

Please BRING some or all of these sweet gifts from nature:
Sea shells, sea salt, seeds, beads, small round stones (corn seed size),
Any personal scissors, awls, needles, cutting boards you may prefer using.
