23 Dec Rattle Making and Song
Rattles are found all over the world in ritual, ceremony, music, and healing. In this class we will be making a rattle and learning to sing songs with it. The primary materials we will be using have been lovingly harvested from Mother Nature with offerings. Everyone will come away with their own rattle and the knowledge of how to make more! Sacred songs are ones that invoke the presence of a particular spirit/energy, initiate healing, or that fill a space with an intention. They are sung in ceremonies, at one’s altar, around a fire, in nature, and beyond. This class is both for people who have experience singing sacred songs and for those who do not. It could either be the spark that ignites a new passion for singing and rattling or a valuable addition to one’s preexisting experience and knowledge. Participants
will learn a few well-known sacred songs and come away with vast resources for learning more. Additionally, participants will be guided through the process of receiving their own songs, starting with the intentions that they put into the creation of their rattle. Amara will share her stories and insights on birthing songs through dreams and ceremony, inspiring participants and calling forth the creative potential in all. Come to be empowered and listen deeply so that the medicine of song can manifest through you.
Rattle Making and Song will be shared by Amara Dreamer.
