Making a Sacred Bowl
Saturday, March 10, 2012, 2-6pm
In some traditions, the bowl represents the moon when she is halfway through her cycle.  In the sky the moon looks like bowl is pouring out the nectar of the cosmos down in the earth....  The symbol of the bowl and its use as a sacred tool is two-fold.  It is the functional bowl that nourishes our bodies and it is the vessel to transform the emotions. The bowl takes its place on the wheel of life in the west and is aligned with the element of water.  In this class participants will create a sacred wooden bowl and learn ways to use it as part of their spiritual practice.  Adhi will lead a journey to so that each participant can connect with a guide to help with this process.
Cost: $65.00 includes materials.
What to bring: Notebook, something to lay on for the journey, a small bottle of water from a special
place, Willow leaves or bark, Jasmine flowers and Osha root for offerings.
