Don't miss the fun of creating your own sacred art: Pour your heart and creative talents onto your favorite drums, rattles or sacred objects. Make your own "medicine" with the designs, colors and shapes that speak to you. New earrings? Arm band? Neck piece...?
Make a feather fan for smudging?
All Sacred paths are welcome: Shaman or mystical exploration of alternate reality is common to ALL traditions.
Wicca, Pagan, Faery Seers, Druid, Buddhist, Taoist, Native American, Huna, Tribal, Christian, Jewish and so many more paths and traditions share common colors and symbols.
Find what has meaning to you.
Add feathers, leather, fringe or stones to a favorite item.
Dream catcher worn out? Add new feathers. Or make a new one.
Hat bands of brilliant feathers make a striking personal statement.
Have a Remo drum?
They sound great - but wrap that plastic and rope ties in leather -
Or paint the drum face with your totems or symbols to invite in the drum medicine you want.
Plain drum stick or walking stick? Rattle or drum? Add your personal touch.
Jeanne McLaughlin, long-time artist and creative Medicine Lady will show you how to implement the ideas you want to see happen.
Not to worry about "how to" technique or supplies -
Jeanne shares her paints, brushes, beads and some feathers and leather.
She also has a huge collection of items that are also for sale -- at very reasonable prices.
Wonder what your medicine or sacred spirit colors or images are? Find out.
Journey to discover your newest totems. We begin with a drum circle, A Calling-In Prayer - and a journey into your heart-center to find your current medicine helper - and perhaps an ancestor artist to help you craft your vision.
Jeanne has led many to create art way beyond their ability.
Follow an expert and execute your vision with style.
After you've set the "critical mind" aside... it will be easy to follow your heart and explore your own unique ideas.
Amazing creations from Jeanne's past workshops....
"...what fun to see your personal medicine pieces created right before your own eyes - and by your own hands!" Jeanne
A walking stick also becomes your signature "I've arrived at camp" to stand outside the door. Take your magic into the woods for a walk... with the "medicine" you want to connect with.
Do you have a walking stick,
or sacred stones,
crystals or something you want to incorporate?? - bring it.
Did you save the other earring when you lost one?
Bring it and create a new single earring with feathers and stones.
Create a unique feather earring or hat band. There will be some for sale too.
You'd be amazed how easily you can revamp an old earring into something like one of these....
or make a pair of new ones - or a stream of feathers to clip into your hair!
Old jewelry to share or trade? Bring it and barter with others or remake it anew.
Do you have drums or rattles or ??? you are not using? Set a price and bring them to sell, trade - or fix them up for you.
Old leather jacket or pants?
Old belt or purse?
Bring it and make a medicine bag or pouch.
Favorite Hat?? - and make a band or add a feather??
Reuse - upcycle and remake all that "stuff" you've been holding onto.
