When work meets medicine / My one month countdown to Spirit Weavers Gathering begins this week. I'm beyond excited to teach other women to bind their own leather journals and to sing, sleep and dream beneath the canopy of ancient redwoods by the Navarro River. For those that will join me, we will experience the opportunity to have our work meet our medicine by imbuing our handwork with an intended feeling/vibration- be it love, gratitude, guidance or protection. We will create a sacred vessel to hold the words and images we inscribe within. May the beauty and magic of the forest seep into each and every stitch.
class description: Each of us has a sacred story, one that may be recorded and shared with our future selves, our brothers and sisters, and our children. A vessel is all that is needed. Together, we will learn the basics of bookbinding the old world way- using hand tools and natural materials. Erica will guide you step-by-step through the process of hand stitching a woven spine journal that can be utilized to record your visual and written stories. We will explore how a journal may become a tool to ground the visions, initiations and experiences we receive. We will give thanks for the materials provided to us by Mother Earth and through guided visualization, imbue them with intention. You will depart the class with a journal in your hands and, in your heart, the empowered ability to create another.
