DISCOVERING THE RED ROAD by Mary Pat Brennan
Friday Feb. 21st 7pm-9pm $25
The Natives had a beautiful connection to all aspects of Mother Earth and Father Sky. We, too, have that connection although it may lay dormant and unrecognized. Come and learn of the beauty and power that surrounds us every day. This class will discuss Native beliefs and touch on various aspects of their culture such as animal spirits and totems, smudging, the Inipi ceremony, sacred pipe ceremony, and the medicine wheel.
Mary Pat Brennan " I believe being a wife, proud mom, teacher, and animal (nature) lover has all helped me along my life's path. Some Native blood flowing in my veins gave me the desire to learn of the Native ways and customs. I had the honor of being asked to be a sacred pipe carrier in January of 2011. My training has been in the Lakota ways but much of the beliefs carry across the numerous tribes. I believe the beliefs of the Natives can help people connect more deeply and feel their connection to the universe."
