About The Event
Gather Round The Fire - Sharing Native Wisdom
Create a deeper relationship with self through Community, Culture & Nature.
Come gather friends, round the fire. Here we will share storytelling of old ways and bring these teachings back to life. Join Shannon Chada and her teacher Shawn Stevens on this journey as your Spiritual Guides for this 3 hour workshop sharing the 7 Elder Teachings, Sacred Fire Teachings and ending the day with Native Flute playing, Reiki Energy and a Healing Blessing. Together we will connect community, interweave culture and and gather nature into our present lives.
The 7 Elder Teachings is a First Nations Ojibwe teaching and was taught to Shannon when she was a teenager. To this day it remains the foundation and guide for living her best self. This story can take many forms and goes by a few names, but always brings about good change. Come gather friends. It's your turn to hear the story.
Sacred Fire Teachings among all Indigenous peoples of the world, the ceremonial fire has been a place of prayer and offerings. It is a place kept both Holy and Sacred. Shawn will share the essence and importance of starting, keeping, and extinguishing a sacred ceremonial fire. If time and weather permits, Shawn will share the Indigenous way of making fire by the "Fire bow" (Bow drill).
These teachings are for everybody. No matter where you come from, or what your beliefs are. These Native teachings respect all diversities and all are welcome.
