Peruvian Pipe Ceremony in the Ways of Ka Ta See - 5:00 p.m.  Ceremony will be presented by JoAnne Dodgson. These community gatherings are held with the intent of healing, manifesting, visioning and dreaming. We will be using pipes carved from stone - one being a Cacao Tree pipe! The journey begins with the altar set-up in center of circle with herbs, pipes, smudging materials, beeswax candles, other sacred items. All participants will be "smudged" (energetically cleared with osha root or sage), and the River Rock will be passed around circle for introductions and welcoming.  During the ceremony, prayers/intentions from each person are spoken aloud (as comfortable) and put in the pipe(s) with the herbal smoking blend, which can be made with or without tobacco. The tobacco is a pure ceremonial tobacco grown and harvested in traditional ways in Central America. Pipe(s) go around the circle to be smoked, sending prayers out, blessing each other. It is not essential to smoke the pipe if anyone prefers not to. The power of the ceremony is in the heartfelt intent and presence and connection among the people and with all the medicines in the sacred items and spiritual guidance being received. http://timeshout.com/event/108261
