Spring and Summer

Changing Market

In response to many who have expressed a desire for a deeper, more satisfying personal connection with the world of First Nations people, I am pleased to offer you a series of Workshops & Personal Retreat Days that I conduct on my land in Udora, located just 15 min. N of Uxbridge. During our time together we will share and enjoy an experience that allows us to respond to the rhythm of Nature as we collectively enjoy lovingly prepared homemade food, walks in the woods and connection to All of our Relations.

Please see below a list of upcoming Workshops and Personal Retreat Days.  Should you feel called to attend or would like to be added to the workshop invitation list please drop me a note through the contact page.

Spring & Summer

 

4 Season Medicine Walk – (Four part Retreat Series)

In Native tradition, Medicine is anything that will aid the seeker in feeling more connected and in harmony with Nature and all life-forms.  Anything that is healing to the body, mind, and/or spirit is Medicine.
In the way of my Ancestors, I have chosen to offer these insights through a Four Season Medicine Walk retreat series which acts as a bridge to the ancient understandings of Native Knowing Systems.
Please join me as we begin the first of a 4 part series (Spring).  Illumination is the medicine that awaits the seeker in the Eastern direction.  A place where Eagle soars and where one finds the open door to all levels of awareness and understanding.  As we move into our own awakening we join Mother Earth in celebration of the season of summer a time for child-like innocence and play.  Note:  the second part of the series (Summer) will be offered approx. 6 weeks after the Spring retreat with Fall and Winter following.  Participants can begin their 4 part series at anytime during the cycle and are encouraged to complete all four seasons.

 

 The Elements and You – (One Day Workshop)  

 

The Medicine Wheel has long been central to the Native Way of Life – few are aware of its ability to bring clarity and peace to the ways in which we relate to one another, and ourselves. In keeping with our elders’ continued encouragement to integrate the power of this Wisdom into our daily lives, this workshop brings a much-needed breath of fresh air and a truly unique experience on how to gently unlock the trans-formative power of the Medicine Wheel in your life.  Discover the traits, needs and challenges of each elemental personality as you gain an understanding and acceptance of yourself, and the people you care most about.

 

 

Traditional Shaker Making – (One Day Workshop)

 

Similar to Native drums, traditional shakers are made with natural materials such as
deer hide, sinew and wood. They are used as musical and healing instruments and can
be formed into almost any shape – then personalized by hand painting. In this workshop, you’ll have the opportunity to make both a shaker and a palm rattle.

 

 

Traditional Native Drum Making –(One Day Workshop)

For centuries the drum has been used to amplify the voice and synchronize the heartbeat of humans to the natural rhythms of the earth – a symbol of the Circle of Life and our connectedness. Embraced by many cultures around the world, the drum continues to be used for healing, ritual, celebration, meditation and relaxation.
At this Traditional Native Drum Making Workshop you will have the extraordinary opportunity to experience the beauty and fulfilment of creating your own Algonquin style hand drum.
