Mother and daughter and the sacred vessels they created.
The Sacred Vessel
With a wealth of natural materials, found objects and treasured items we create a vessel in the powerful symbol of the circle, a symbol of the womb. Your vessel represents your uniqueness and your sacred self. To be sacred is to be whole. Not defined by your money or job title. To be sacred is to accept that you are born not only through your mother, but by your mother’s mother and from the Source that birthed the first woman.
The Red Shoes
To confirm a self-designed life, you will create pair of red shoes adorned and embellished with red ornaments, glitter, paint and jewels.
This workshop, inspired by a story told by Dr. Pinklola Estes in Workshop concludes with a red shoes ceremony.
The Word Wand
