Smudging is the sacred act of burning special herbs to create a cleansing smoke bath that is used to purify people, ceremonial tools, objects, your home, or healing space.
In this virtual workshop Shannon will offer explanation and demonstration of how to use a simple smudge using the herbal sacred plants of sage, essential oil of sage, palo santo stick, palo santo essential oil and Sweetgrass.
We will also learn about the earth, water, fire, and air direction tools we use in traditional Native American smudging. You will also learn about honoring the winged ones, with a demonstration on how to dress a feather (customize & decorate it) to honor its energy and spirit. This personalizes the feather with your own sacred energy medicine.
