You'll need to pre-gather your materials to be prepared to make your spirit keeper with us as a group! The materials list is below the following workshop description!
PART I - Saturday, November 6th
MAKING YOUR KACHINA
You will be guided through the process of building your own Earth-tending Kachina (Spirit Keeper). We will make our Kachinas using materials you have gathered beforehand.
Autumn is the season of the Bountiful Harvest: a time where we can step back, gain new perspectives, and re-inspire our lives. Through spontaneous art-making processes, our Kachinas can help us listen into the voice of the Earth and to find guidance and purpose during this time of ecologic and social turbulence. This workshop respectfully draws on the Hopi tradition of Kachinas —small spirit-dolls that have traditionally helped the Hopi Indian-nation peoples listen into “Mother Earth who sustains the balance and wholeness of all things.” We will journal and then share our process in dyads and then with the group as a whole.
Finish working with your Kachina. Take some time to get to know your Kachina and the messages & energies it carries. Journal if you wish.
PART 2: Saturday, November 13th.
SHARING THE WISDOM: Decoding and Sharing the Messages of our Kachinas.
In Part 2, we'll decode and share the messages of our Kachina Spirit Keepers. We will explore in-depth the ways our Kachinas are "communing" with us. We will also harvest the messages and wisdom that your Kachina offers to us as a group and to humanity. This collective wisdom can help us find direction and purpose within the Corona era. Zoom breakout rooms will be used for small group processing.
