05/17 (Saturday) 10.30 – 5.30 pm Location: North Asheville. Price: $65

‘The grandmothers, the ancient ones have never left us. Their  ancient knowledge is written in our DNA, it races through our blood and is cemented into the very marrow of our bones. Their wisdom comes alive through inspiration and imagination – in the awe of a sunset, of the ever changing canvas of the sky or through gazes where we become lost amid the great expanse of stars’.

In this day workshop we will call in the grandmothers in sacred space. We call them in to reconnect, knowing that we have never been unattached from them. We call them in as we birth an earth centered culture. We call them in for their strength and inspiration in these threshold times. We will call them in through song and chant. We call them in to co-create with the divine, for renewal, inspiration, gratitude and love.

Shamanic journeying                                                                                                                                                                 We will journey between the worlds, with guided meditation and live drumming, traveling to the cave of the ancestors to ask for their wisdom. We will share stories of our own grandmothers and those encounters and impressions we have of the ancient ones, our collective grandmothers.

We’ll spend some time in silence, drawing and journalling.

Our intention will be in co-creating with the divine, our dolls our focus in what it takes to shift consciousness and inspire us in our work to birth a new culture, a culture of compassion, of togetherness, one rooted in the bones of the grandmothers.
