EVENTS AND CLASSES
Topics vary at each gathering. Generally held in Westminster, MD
* Dream Catcher Making Workshops
Always wanted to know how to make a dream catcher? Well here is your chance! Learn the art of weaving and create a 7-7 ½ dream catcher. Hoops, beads, and feathers are provided. Participants are encouraged to bring their own personal embellishments they'd like to incorporate. Dream catchers are not only beautiful, but can also be healing, medatative, and give rise to a hidden artistic side you never knew you had ! Ages 9 and up. Couples, moms and daughters, friends fun day out will all enjoy this class.
The Ojibwe people have an ancient legend about the origin of the dreamcatcher. Storytellers speak of the Spider Woman, known as Asibikaashi; she took care of the children and the people on the land. Eventually, the Ojibwe Nation spread to the corners of North America and it became difficult for Asibikaashi to reach all the children. So the mothers and grandmothers would weave magical webs for the children, using willow hoops and sinew, or cordage made from plants. The dreamcatchers would filter out all bad dreams and only allow good thoughts to enter the mind. Once the sun rises, all bad dreams just disappear.
Held here in Westminster, MD or at other locations as requested or needed.

Elevate your Life ~ Stretch Your Mind !
Got that nudge? Looking for a teacher? Ready for the next level? Come join us for nine fun, power packed, interactive, transformative classes! Every 2nd Saturday beginning March 12th, 2016 from 10-4 in Westminster, Maryland.
Come. Awaken the wisdom/teacher/healer within you..
Attention serious beginners students of Spirituality! This is a 9 month, one day a month, commitment to your personal growth and enlightenment. We know that each of you will come for different reasons. Some of you will come seeking answers. Some to perhaps satisfy a curiosity. Others are reaching for a deeper meaning to life. Some for clarification. Whatever the 'call' was that led you here, there are no accidents and no mistakes. You were meant to be here. The group will form a very special unique bond of trust and camaraderie. We will treat each other with dignity and respect. No question or though will be downplayed. We will honor each others sacred space, and what occurs in class will remain confidential.
Know that there is no right or wrong answers or thoughts. You can't pass or fail this course. You will however, obtain a completely new outlook on life. One that eliminates any false sense of separation and chip away at all that needless anxiety and fear. You will have learned there is so much more to life than just what we see with our eyes and gain tools to help you further expand your newly found perspectives. You will further deepen your own unique connection with all things human, animal, earthly and beyond. You may even see your own personal belief system in a completely new light. Or just throw it all out and start all over! With an open mind and an open heart, all things are possible.
We will cross all cultures and divides. We will look to the past, present and future within all sorts of modalities ranging from who we were, are, and will be and how we can reduce our carbon footprint by becoming more of the 'solution' and less of the 'problem'. If you care about your 'being' a better human 'being' overall .. take this class.
Students may be asked to bring in some items to be used in the class. It is recommended that each student obtain a log to record their experiences in such as a scrap book or journal. We will be referring to that often. Also, pack a lunch.
