This month:

12-1:30 pm
“Give-Away Ceremony”

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

You are invited to participate in a Native American tradition known as the Give-Away Ceremony. A give-away is not about giving away something that you no longer have use for, or passing along a gift someone else gave you for which you had no use anyway. Instead, it’s about passing along an object that represents something significant about you, and in turn when you give it to someone else, you’re passing along that significance—and that blessing—to them. Not with the thought of having strings attached to the gift or having regrets from having given the gift but to sacrifice something important to ourselves in order to allow for personal growth in the future. When you consciously participate in this type of ceremony with Earth’s seasonal holidays, the act of such giving isn’t only a relinquishment, it becomes a metaphor for the release or death of the old season. The act of receiving something new in your life is a metaphor for opening yourself to whatever the next cycle brings, to a rebirth or new beginning. If you are intrested in participating, we ask that you bring your object wrapped up, it should be one that has personal meaning, this object will have a story that goes with it, one that says something about you. Please contact us with any questions.

4:30-6 pm

Reset for the New Year with Crystal Clear Intentions! Setting positive healing intentions for what you want to create for the next year cycle can help you to manifest your dreams.

Covered on only one side, the back is laced to form the symbol of a medicine wheel with the four cardinal directions that also serve as a hand hold. Great for drumming circles and meditation!
