Creating And Tending to Your Altar
Thursday, May 16, 2019
6:30pm – 8:30pm
An altar can enhance your life through deep connection to the mysteries, the Divine, the ancestors. It can be a threshold place to meet them and co-create magic. There is no right or wrong way to create an altar although if you are feeling intimated by the process or yearn to deepen into northern Native European traditions, come discover the Wheel, the directions and the Elements that we work with. We will create a saining water with holy water from sacred springs in Ireland and dress a candle to activate and re-energize your altar.
Instructor: Tonja Reichley Herbalist (Bsc, MBA) spends her time in the urban alleyways of Denver and on the windswept coast of western Ireland foraging for wild herbs to nourish, heal and revitalize the whole self: body, mind and spirit. She loves the power and connection of ritual and ancient Irish traditions. She practices alchemy through the synchronicity of the natural world and her own connection to the healing arts, inspired by Brighid of Kildare, Irish goddess and saint. Tonja teaches classes on herbs and Irish spirituality in Denver and in Ireland. Her classes inspire the senses and focus on the use of herbs and aromatherapy for living a more connected and radiant life. She leads sacred journeys to Ireland three times a year including a two week Herb School, inspiring students with the holy landscape, deepening through ritual, prayer, intention, and opening to the mysteries of ancient sites and herbal thresholds. She recently published Wild Irish Roots: A Seasonal Guidebook to Herbs, Ritual and Connection and her deck of Way of Brighid Oracle Cards has been selling worldwide for many years. website: dancingwiththewild.com/ FB: Dancing with the Wild/ FB: Tonja Reichley/ Instagram: @TonjaReichley
