02 Jan Rattle Making & Song
Rattles are found all over the world in ritual, ceremony, music, and healing. In this class we will be making a sacred rattle and using it to accompany our voices as we sing. The raw hide has been hand prepared in an earth-friendly manner and the stems have been lovingly harvested from Mother Earth. 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 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 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, inspiring participants and calling forth the creative potential in all. Come to be empowered and listen deeply so that the blessing of song can manifest through you.
Rattle Making & Song will be shared by Amara Dreamer.
