Horses mean many things to us from power & freedom to wildness, independence, healing, travel and communication as well as many more. We have honored these wondrous beings since our eyes first saw them, part of us runs free when we watch them galloping with mane and tail streaming in the wind.
This sunday we are exploring the shamanic qualities of horse as we contemplating her magic, mystery and medicine. A day to share stories about mythical horses, to explore the shamanic essence of horse and create your own piece of sacred art inspired by horse.

With stories from ancient folklore and journeying with the horse drum between the worlds on a shamanic journey…
In the afternoon we will create needle felted art piece inspired by symbols, shapes, colors and messages that horse gave to us on our journey. While all art materials are provided I encourage you to bring any personal items you may wish to incorporate into your hanging.
