Sacred Art: Hekate Torches
Sunday, May 5, 2019
2:00pm – 4:00pm
There is no need to fear the dark once you realize you hold your own light. In this month’s spirit crafting class, we will honor the Goddess Hekate, the Torchbearer, calling forth our ability to navigate the hidden places within ourselves and bringing the fire of ancient wisdom to our lives. In gentle ritual, we enter Hekate’s sacred cave spaces and seek self illumination, then circle together to create mullein torches, embedding them with the light of both her truths and our own.
Each participant will create two torches using locally harvested mullein, hand grown herbs sacred to Hekate, and consciously sources beeswax. Offered by Ritualcravt teachers Michelle VanderHouwen of Oak and Hawthorn and Rory Lula McMahan of The Sacred Table.
All “Ritual Art” classes will be team taught. Each class will begin in ceremony by opening circle, honoring our chosen goddess and receiving wisdom. We will then create within ceremonial space and finally close circle.
Michelle VanderHouwen is the owner of Oak and Hawthorn and provides the plant babies for Ritualcravt’s annual plant sale. Throughout all her years, she has studied art as a window into Spirit and the psyche, and Nature has been her church. Michelle believes that our hands are magnificent communicators. When we let them dig, sculpt, draw, scrape, tie and sew, we are sending messages to and from Heart Center. Our hands, full of sensation but devoid of reasoning, can create pure, honest prayer. In Michelle’s classes she teaches, with a variety of tools, different ways of accessing Spirit using our hands and hearts. Her goal is to help us all access the knowing we had at birth. Michelle is deeply knowledgeable about the spiritual wisdom of nature, studied Shamanic Herbalism with Darcey Blue, and walks with the soul of a Witch.
