Prayer Ribbon Ceremony

March 11th, 2017 4:30pm - 9:30pm

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. White Rose Farm Circle, Inc. is sponsoring the event.

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!

Starting at 4:30 p.m., we will create a hour-long ceremony to promote harmony with the land, its spirits and our communities. We will host a gathering with simple farm food and a fire circle after the ceremony. Please bring a drum or other musical instrument and join us for feasting, singing, dancing and drumming. 

May Day is coming!

    OUr May Day Celebration will be held on Sunday, May 7 from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m. It features music from Artie and the Vipers, including Morris dances, and dancing around the traditional May Pole. More details soon. 

Support the Circle!

The farm now has a non-profit associated with it: White Rose Farm Circle, Inc. Its vision is to develop and share a model of community that empowers people to work together to restore health to the land, the natural world and each other. Donations are tax deductible. We invite you to contribute! All donations are welcome!
