Tipi Raising: Ancient Skills for a Community Space

Expanding on understandings and teachings of the medicine wheel, join us in the raising of sacred community and gathering space! The Tipi has origins in archetypal geometries and communal energies as a structure for protection and sharing of stories and wisdom; this workshop will focus on instructionals ranging from ancient skills, nomadic building practices, and techniques in keeping and managing ceremonial fires. Once built, the tipi will be available for all to enjoy during the retreat, and will be complete with a dedication ceremony.
