Harmony and Healing with Prayer Ribbons
Prayer Ribbon Workshop
Saturday, March 11 from 1:30 to 5:30, with a fire circle and shared meal afterwards, held at the Retreat House, 4234 Ruggles Road, Taneytown. MD.
Native American Evan Pritchard is coming to White Rose Farm to lead a workshop and ceremony about prayer ribbons. In this Algonquin tradition, the ribbons—yellow, red, black and white--represent the four original races of man; the green, Mother Earth; the blue, Father Sky. When we tie them together and display them publicly, we affirm that we choose to honor and respect each other, the natural world, and the Spirit that guides us. What a potent symbol at this time!
White Rose Farm Circle, Inc. has agreed to sponsor the event. Evan confirmed that a prayer ribbon ceremony can get subtle energies moving again. It wordlessly conveys a message of harmony with nature and each other. The bright colors speak to our hearts and to the elemental forces in Nature herself. As the ribbons dance in the breeze, they remind us to move with the wind of the Spirit, to open to new energies and forms. They can also honor and invite spirits of the ancestors to help us now.
Suggested donation: $40/adult, $60/couple or parent/child; $75/family ( We have options for people on a budget and people able to help others attend.) Click here to register.
Following the workshop, we will create a ceremony to promote harmony with the land, its spirits and our communities. A fire circle and simple farm food will be offered after the ceremony. Bring a drum or musical instrument and plan to feast, dance, drum and sing!
