Walking the Way of the Medicine Woman Winter Solstice Celebration

  • Dec 20, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • Dee Ann Nichols

Hi All,

Something exciting is happening! My good friend Diane Huling and I are collaborating on a new series of events. These events will explore the unique perspective of women's medicine - what it is, how to access it, work with it and participate fully in the experience of being a Woman on the Medicine Path. We will incorporate aspects of the Peruvian tradition with aspects of the Native American tradition to create deep connections with the fecundity and healing energy of the Earth and our feminine natures. All these events will be for women only and will be announced under the banner 'Walking the Way of the Medicine Woman'.

Please join us for our inaugural offering - the Winter Solstice Celebration.

Walking the Way of the Medicine Woman Winter Solstice Celebration

    Winter Solstice Session Schedule - part 4
    Session Six: Sunday Afternoon 2:30 pm to 6:30 pm – Diane will speak on how to bring the medicine out into the world. This is not about creating or enhancing a business.

We will conclude with a candle lighting ceremony, the gifting of a stone and the closing of Sacred Space
    After Party! Sunday Evening: 7pm to? – Optional potluck dinner for those who are able or wish to stay. Coyote Market during the entire weekend!
    We will have an area set aside for those of you who have arts and crafts or other shamanic items you might wish to sell or trade. The market will be open on breaks only. Contact us for details and space considerations.

    Session Three: Saturday Afternoon 2:30 pm to 6:30pm – Dee Ann will speak about Despacho – the Andean Prayer Bundle – and we will participate in two Hatun (great) Despacho Ceremonies. The first Despacho we will create will be for releasing everything that causes Fear in our lives and the world. This will take the form of what is known as a Kuti Despacho. The second Despacho we will create will be for bringing ourselves and the world into balance or right relation with Joy. This is known as an Ayni Despacho. The Kuti Despacho will be burned during the afternoon session. The Ayni one may be held and burned later. You may bring burnable items to contribute to the prayer bundles as you feel called.
    Session Four: Saturday Evening 8:00 pm to? – An evening of celebration. We will sing, drum and dance the Solstice. Shaman’s blessings and Healing Drum will be available.

    Session One: Friday 7:00 pm – We will open Sacred Space for the weekend followed by a group altar creation ceremony. We will then pass the talking stick so each person may speak and create the intent for their time in ceremony. We will bless talking stones and participate in a Native American Pipe ceremony officiated by Diane.
    Session Two: Saturday Morning 9:00 am to 1:00 pm – Diane will speak on the subject of defining Women’s medicine. What is it? How does it differ from men’s medicine or combined work? How do we want to go about creating in a Women’s Way? Bear/Buffalo medicine concepts will be presented . We will participate in the Honey Paws Healing Ceremony and Bear Dance.
