We also learnt how to make shamanic prayer ties with tobacco. You intentionally say prayers & wishes into each coloured bundle you make (6 colours for the 4 directions, plus one for Grandfather Sky & Grandmother Earth) & then, once you have it ready you say your prayers holding each to your chakra points. After this, the prayers are inbedded into the tobacco. You then release the prayers on the smoke of the tobacco after it is thrown onto a fire as part of the fire ceremony. This was especially profound for me! Really felt like something was releasing & I was definitely letting go of my old belief systems that tend to hold me back. Fantasitc!
It was a great weekend & in a lovely setting. The Barns Conference Centre is part of the Pett Trust in the Cotswolds. There are some great views around & it's worth taking time out of your schedule, like we did, to do a walk in the area. The staff are super & really look after you & the food was fantastic. All vegetarian of course but very tasty! We were treated to some lovely wheat & dairy free cake for afternoon tea as well!
Thanks to Simon for organising such a lovely course. Well worth while & I am really glad I now have another type of healing to offer people. Tired but happy! :D x x
