EXPANDING THE WORK OF THE CHURCH

This two-day workshop teaches participants to make a variety of shamanic tools, from smudge fans to rattles to amuletic jewelry and more. Shamanic journeying experience is required.

We journey to our allies for guidance on what we are to make, so every item is unique. Even people with no artistic experience have taken this class and produced exceptionally fine tools with which to enhance their shamanic practice. Participants are encouraged to bring materials such as beads, feathers, and so on with which to work, and there is a fine local bead store which we visit when we teach the class in the Athens area. We usually also bring some supplies with us. Bekki teaches peyote stitch and brick stitch beadwork for those who want to use them for decoration. If you have signed up for one of these classes we encourage you to call us for guidance on what to bring, and to discuss potential projects with us.

Crow can often be persuaded to teach his Sacred Roadkill mini-workshop during this workshop, showing people safe ways of rescuing and processing road-killed animals to reclaim them for sacred use. He also gives his lecture on the legal aspects of rescuing road-kill.

Occasionally we also teach the Spirit House mini-workshop as part of this workshop as well.

Advance registration is required to attend all Church of Earth Healing classes and workshops. See the Schedule for when and where Shamanic Tool Making is next offered.
