DREAMCATCHERS

Join us to weave some dreams of your own and create a modern interpretation of a Native American dreamcatcher. Many Native Americans believe that the night air was full of good and evil. Traditional dreamcatchers were intended to protect the sleeping individual from negative dreams, by catching them in the web, while letting positive dreams pass through. When the sun rose and the positive dreams would slip through the hole in the center of the dreamcatcher and negative ones would burn away.

During this studio experience participants will receive gentle guidance to learn how to create a unique and personal dreamcatcher using a hoop and a variety of materials (lace, fabric, ribbon, yarn, feathers, and beads), all materials will be provided. If you wish to bring some of your own sentimental or beautiful items from home you are welcome to do that as well. 

All materials will be provided. If you wish to bring some of your own sentimental or beautiful items from home, you are welcome to do that as well.

MALAS

Malas are a beautiful piece of jewelry that can be a wonderful entry into mindfulness. There has been a shift to focus more on transformation and gratitude this past year and we want to help  with this exploration. Not often do we take time to slow down and give ourselves a moment to create. This studio is an opportunity to focus on your internal landscape, explore your authentic self with gratitude, and to set intentions that can be infused into your beads and this beautiful piece of jewelry.

In addition to being jewelry, a completed mala can be a powerful tool used to enhance your meditation practice. The word “mala” means "heavenly garland," and is used as a tool for meditation or prayer.

The aim of this studio will use mindfulness to visualize, set intentions to choose your stones and illuminate the energy you need to draw into your life. During the maker process, I will gently instruct and support you in creating your mala. I will also share information about how to use your mala, ideas for mantras, why 108 beads are used, care of your mala, and traditions. Malas can be used to transform habits or patterns in your life as well as to manifest what will be for your highest good for your energetic body and self.

All materials are included, however, certain stone choices may be additional. After the visualization and meditation, you will choose your beads and color palette. We will discuss intentions prior to the event to ensure that we have the right stone kits for you.
