SoundTouch is organising a number of exciting and innovative events throughout 2017, please feel free to join us at any of the following:
25th, 2-3.30pm – Sacred Pipe Cermony, The Sound Lodge, Hexham
Gwen (Eagle) is a Sacred Pipe Carrier and I have asked her if she will do me the honour of performing a Sacred Pipe Ceremony at the Sound Lodge, Hexham on Saturday 25th November 2-3.30pm. The Sacred Ceremony will be open for about 8-10 people and will be a symbolic start of the "return of the Light" of the Winter Solstice and the Feast of Christmas.
The Sacred Pipe and Ceremony are at the heart of Native American culture and must always be treated with great respect . There is a great deal of beautiful ceremonial symbolism in a pipe ceremony. When the pipe is assembled all things in creation are represented. Plants – stem and smoking mix, Animal – fur, leather and feathers, Mineral – the pipestone and Human – the person smoking the pipe. The four elements are also present – Earth – in the stone of the bowl, Fire which is lit in the bowl, Air which is drawn through, and Water in the spit of the smoke. In a ceremony when the pipe is filled it is passed clockwise round the circle and each person makes their prayers and smokes the pipe if they wish to. Not everyone wants to smoke the pipe but anyone can hold the pipe and pray with it. Once you have shared in a pipe ceremony you only need to call it to mind in moments of difficulty or danger to release an abundance of love and power to augment your own. Wherever you are and whatever the time, its blessings is with you always.
If you would like to come please email me on Johanna.email@example.com. *We are asking for a small donation to a local tree planting scheme as an offering. Thank you.
