The Supportive Sounds Series is a rare opportunity to come (back) together to experience nature in new (yet ancient ways), listening to the Indigenous big drum and teachings with Heather Clear Wind.
This will be a time to re-experience gathering again in gentle, nourishing and healing ways. We will be outdoors together, creating community, connection and sharing (following pandemic safety protocols of socially-distancing, etc.).
Heather will share some of her personal story of reclamation being an inter-generational Indian Residential School survivor and in reclaiming her Nehiyawewin language. She will also share teachings about nature, raising awareness to this abundance of support that we are all born into and that we have access to daily.
There will be a big drum spirit journey to the beats of the Indigenous big drum. This Indigenous ceremony will also be to honour the land and the ancestors.
It’s exciting that our gathering will be on the ᐅᐦᐸᐦᐅᐃᐧ ᐲᓯᒼ ohpahowi-pîsim full moon (aka flying-up moon in Nehiyawewin language – in relation to the ducks flying) so we can call in the powerful grandmother full moon’s energy.
There will be an opportunity for others to share and to ask questions.
Our gathering is FREE.
