Welcome Spring! Awakening our commitment to protecting Mother Earth
Wednesday, May 22 - 1 to 3 p.m.
This workshop will involve participants in creative activities designed to celebrate spring as the world around us blooms and blossoms with new life.
Lori will assist participants as they compose a short memoir piece, using prose or poetry, while they reminisce about springtimes past. Participants will also be invited to dabble with simple artistic mediums to use in expressing their hopes and intentions for this spring and springtimes to come.
We will share our creations, brainstorm and discuss ideas about ways in which we can be effective caretakers of the earth around us.
To culminate, participants will sit in meditation to welcome spring, accompanied by gentle drumming, a Native American tradition. The Native Americans believe that drumming is the heartbeat of Mother Earth. We will pause to thank her for all her gifts and to extend our promises to protect her in our daily lives.
Lori Weatherly, workshop facilitator, presented at Full Circle in the past. She offered a series on Grace and a book study of Big Magic, Creative Living Without Fear. A retired schoolteacher, Lori can be found, most days, creating in her home studio. Having recently completed her memoir, Lori is now developing her weaving and embroidery skills. She and her husband are deeply committed to protecting and re-wilding their ten acres of wild, wooded wetlands in Saint Clair County.
