You will need to arrange accommodations for your stay near by or commute. There are many B&Bs, AirB&B, motels, camping , and hotels in the area. There is a long rail trail along the Ammomousic River that we will utilize to gathering offerings, and such during the weekend. We are 20 minutes from the Franconia Notch and weather permitting we will spend part of Saturday taking a hike to the BASIN for some of our meditation work. Please self covid test 24 hours before arriving.
What to expect:
(This is a general outline and subject to change depending on the weather and other unforseen variables.)
This is a 3 day weekend workshop. It will start Friday afternoon, All day Saturday and finish on Sunday. This is an emersion into the medicine of Bear. This will include ceremony, journeying, meditation, fire offerings, the creation of a rattle, the gathering of materials to create your rattle and teachings from many traditions that hold the bear as a sacred being.
When working with any animal spirit or diety one needs to come open to recieve. This is about connecting to the bear though the material of its being. Meditation and ceremony will be directing you to listen, see and feel for that energy as it gudes you through the process of making the rattle.
We will bless the Earth and all the Elements that are supporting us through this process. Please bring some water and some earth from where you live to help create the altar/mesa for our work together. This is important and shows repect and builds a connection to where you are from. All this sacred work is about connecting and rediscovering our interconnectedness. We are weaving prayers and actions. These things matter and the rattle you make will have a good foundation for the work you are drawn to do with it.
Friday: You will arrive and set up our space to work. Depending on the location this will include your sleeping arrangements. We will gather at Sunset to Bless the waters and the hides. After that we will eat dinner which will include introductions and instructions for the evening events. You will sew and stuff your rattles and set them to dry.
Saturday: We will start the day with breakfast. Followed by a journey to connect to your rattle’s energy and then a hike to look for things to put in your rattle. Lunch. The afternoon will be working offering and prayers with a fire and building the Earth altar. Dinner. Evening ceremony
Sunday: Beakfast. Then you will put together your rattle from all the medicine you have recieve over the weekend. Followed by a ceremony to deepen your connect and teaching about how to care for and work with your rattle. Then we’ll open the circle and finish all that needs to be done to put closure on our weekend.
