    FEATHER FAN WORKSHOP     July 7th from 2 to 4 pm I am offering a sacred space and my guidance to explore the ‘wisdom of feathers’ and make a smudge fan or a smudge feather along the way. At this in-structural workshop you will be supported in the creation of your fan and more importantly learn about traditional and contemporary understandings of ‘meaning of feathers’; proper handling and care; understandings by diverse cultural awareness and also tune to your own intuitive cognitions with the nature of this offering.  All materials are inclusive, including feathers, natural hide & coloured, crystals, beads etc.. You are also welcome to bring you special feather or decorative element if you have some to include in your creation.   Duration of the workshop 2 hr.        Investment: $55   Meaning of Feathers The Meaning of Feathers plays an important role in the awareness of many cultures. Most understanding embodies the spiritual idea that all natural things within the universe, including birds have spirits forms. That spirit exist, not only in humans, but also in birds (they imprint their fluidal energy onto their feathers) and in animals, plants,  and all living beings. The doctrine is that everything is alive, and possesses an inherent virtue, power and wisdom. The generalized meaning of feathers signified honour & connected the carrier with the Creation and the bird whose feathers came from. Feathers are perceived as gifts from the sky, the sea and the trees. Feathers arrive unexpectedly, but not without purpose.   Birds were revered as bringers of messages and symbols of change and often symbolized light-hearted freedom, their feathers have many spiritual, ceremonial & ritual uses. Decorated feathers were sometimes attached to sacred objects and tools, in the ancient culture and traditions of First Nations the meaning of feathers are inextricably tied to the understanding that birds, as spirit guides, appear through different stages of life to a person, teaching and guiding them, and in some instances protecting them. The meaning of birds and their feathers are of great significance as they are considered to possess Creational energetic powers that can embody, attach and influence a person, empowering them with the powerful traits, attributes and characteristics of the bird.    At the duration of this workshop we will also discus meanings of birds and observe information of the significance of each bird’s attributes and symbolism. Also learn about the purpose, teachings and proper ways of ‘smudging’ and handling sacred objects.  All ages are invited to attend this fun feather crafting afternoon at SpirolGate of Art & Wellbeing by, Biljana Webb   STAINED GLASS WORKSHOP Educational hands on workshop with Whirling Wisdom Studio.

    Join Mark at the Storytelling Tipi   Mark Jenkins tells stories that confront difficult realities with a positive life-affirming vision and a transformative personal quest. He writes novels, and creates characters who are beloved to him and then takes them on adventures into a true-to-life world, rather than a fantasy world. He believes we are each characters in our own true-to-life tall tale. for more info on his Ray adventure series and purchase you may find him by his writers pen Verity Jenkins www.verityjenkins.com   Mark has developed and implemented experiential learning programs for organizations worldwide. However, when his mother, Betty, began showing symptoms of Alzheimer's dementia, he took a break to spend quality time with her. Their time together became the start of a caregiving journey, which Mark calls "accompaniment." Their days were filled with "outings" where Mark and his Mother explored nature's beauty, its flora and fauna, always ending up at a picnic spot. Despite his mother’s cognitive function loss, they choose the path of awe and wonder. Playfulness, imagination, beauty, and love were their guiding principles. However, the journey was not without its challenges. Midway, Mark found himself at his limits in caring for his mother. He had to advocate fiercely to secure the support he needed to see her through to the end of her life. This experience has fueled Mark's dedication to helping others navigate the complexities of caregiving and find the support they need.  Visit Mark’s home site: www.aboutcaring.ca  SCHEDULED SESSION: September 8th, 2024 from 1 to 3pm   EVENT is by donation ~  “To Care or Not to Long-Term Care” Summary:  “Facing complex choices regarding care for ourselves or loved ones is common. By tuning into our emotions, we can make sustainable decisions aligned with our feelings, avoiding unrealistic narratives. Embracing our caring journey without regret or burnout is key. The session encourages sharing experiences to gain wisdom and new perspectives.“   Invitation: Many of us are currently grappling with this question, either for ourselves or our loved ones. Even if it's not a current concern, most of us will eventually confront these intricate and perplexing decisions. There is a more effective process and direction available. By tuning into our emotions and innermost thoughts, we can adjust our decisions to match the level of care and empathy that is sustainable for us. We can also shape our narrative to resonate with our emotions, providing us with clarity and purpose. It's about not forcing our emotions into an overly altruistic or unrealistic narrative, nor crafting a tale that solely serves ourselves. There's no need for duty, obligation, or sheer willpower. We can embark on our paths of caregiving in a manner that won't leave us with regrets. We have the ability to represent the divine and be absolved from our past, or mend our boundaries, fulfilling our destiny and aspirations. Attempting to straddle these two paths is painful and leads to burnout. This session is designed to help you discover the unique path meant for you. Throughout this session, everyone will have the opportunity to share what they are comfortable and motivated to share. We will leverage the collective wisdom of each individual's life experiences and use brief stories to open our hearts and minds to fresh perspectives on the familiar.  E-mail your attendance: birthingstar@gmail.com  SpiralGate of Art and Wellbeing  18378 Highway 118, Tory Hill, ON   www.froghollowartexperience.com      Douglas Smith Around forty years ago, after sundry adventures in academia, I settled on an old farm near Carnarvon, where I live with Lynn, my partner. We heat with wood, grow great garlic, and generally follow the rural round. When inspiration grips, I write poetry, seeding vivid dreams in fertile ground. Altogether I have published eight slim volumes of my work, the latest being a chapbook titledBring Down Babylon: Poems in a Time of Genocide. Half of the proceeds will go to the people of Palestine, so even if you are not partial to poetry, I ask you to consider buying a copy in support of an urgent cause.
