Prayer Ribbon Ceremony
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.
