Medicine Wheel Teachings, Smudging and Medicine Bag Making Workshop - Online

Cree8 will be hosting a Medicine Wheel Teachings, Smudging, and Medicine Bag Making Workshop

Wednesday, December 16 & Wednesday, December 23
Online over Zoom Meetings

Smudging & Medicine Wheel Teachings
Smudging is a sacred way to cleanse, balance, pray and connect to Mother Earth. The medicines used honour the teachings of Four Directions of the Medicine Wheel. We honour and value each medicine is part of the Medicine Wheel that balances and as sustains us. Each individual may have a deeper connection to a particular medicine or direction depending on what is needed in their life at the time. Although traditions, medicines and stories may be slightly different depending on the Nation, Region or
individual sharing the teachings, the message is always of balance and healing. The Medicine Wheel and Smudging are an integral part of many First Nations and Indigenous cultures throughout Turtle Island.
* If you Require a Smudge Kit or supplies which may include a Shell or Pan, Medicines, or matches, please contact Chantal as we have some kits available or can direct you to acquire supplies.

Medicine Bags
Medicine Bags also called Medicine Pouches, carry our four sacred medicines close to our hearts. They protect and guide us along our journey, reminding us of our connection to Mother Earth, all living things and ourselves. Sometimes they contain stones, shells, feathers, keepsakes or items of significance in addition to the sacred medicines. 

Chantal will share and guide you through the teachings of the Medicine Wheel, Smudging and the creation of your Medicine Bags. You will choose your hide and materials after the initial teachings are shared. Chantal will deliver packages with all the aspects you will need to assemble your Medicine bags including Hide, Lacing, Sinew, Button, and tools required. The Four Sacred Medicines will also be provided in prayer ties to incorporate into your completed Medicine Bag.
