Sacred Teachings of Featherwork
December 7 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm$40.00
Honoring the medicine of the winged ones comes in many forms, one of which includes the care and use of feathers in our devotional work. Many traditions across the world recognize the energy and spiritual connections that the feathers bring into ceremony and daily use. Feathers used regularly as tools require care and maintenance.
In this class, I will demonstrate the cleaning and the “Bringing Back to Life” that happens when working with feathers. This is a physical, energetic and transformative process that occurs with patience. Washing, drying and preening is just a small part of the responsibility that comes with the medicine.
This class also includes the discussion of protocols, use, legalities, care and teachings that come with featherwork.
*Note: Please do not bring personal feathers to class. Bring your personal stories.
