“Your sacred space is where you can find yourself again and again.”
— Joseph Campbell
This full-day workshop will teach you how to transform a space into a sacred place. We can all intentionally create areas to reflect, recharge, celebrate, or to promote any soulful growth you can imagine. Sacred space can be created in any environment, individually or in a collaborative group.
In this hands-on workshop, we will learn via case study by collaborating together on a design for the Rite of Passage Journeys basecamp, in Bothell, WA, where Songaia Co-Housing Community also resides. We will begin by preparing the area and ourselves energetically through a ceremonial process that will carry on throughout the day. The process of design will have us both inside doing collaborative group work and outside, observing in the space being designed. The workshop will also include creating a group art project for the space.
Understandings you will take away from the workshop:
- · how to work through a design process for any space
- · how to use permaculture principles and ethics throughout the design process
- · how to create a personalized ceremony for doing this work at home
In the weeks following the workshop, there will be two volunteer work-parties to install some of the designs the team creates!
