Tomorrow: Morning Altars!
Morning Altars. Saturday, Dec. 15th, 10 AM - 2 PM. Sliding Scale $50 - 60.
We live in a fast, distracted, and disconnected world. Yet, there is an ancient ritual and expression that has always connected the people back to the la nd, to their imaginations, to wonder and play, and to the deeper meaning of life - impermanent earth art. Nowadays we need this more than ever.
Morning Altars is a hands-on seven practice that is part creative expression, part mindfulness, and part nature connection. During this workshop, you will learn the 7 steps of creating earth altars. Each step offers an innovative way to slow down, open to wonder and curiosity, and listen to the language of the land.
Together, we will create meaningful and mesmerizing altars, offer them as blessings, and then surrender and let them go as a practice of impermanence. This ancient ritual and expression helps us explore the profound meaning of life's ephemerality.
Join Day Schildkret, internationally renowned earth mandala artist and author as he launches his new book: "Morning Altars: A 7-Step Practice to Nourish Your Spirit with Nature, Art and Ritual" for this workshop that will offer a much-needed digital detox, getting you off the screens and into the wisdom and joy of the natural world.
