Shamanic rattles are traditionally used all over the world for connecting with the spirit worlds. They are valuable tools for healing, clearing space, protection and for altering your brainwaves so you can travel on shamanic journeys.
Magic happens when women come together in a safe space to craft and share. Oxytocin is released, we replenish and reconnect with our ancient female ancestors by crafting as they used to. And we return to our lives not just with our new creations, but with our cups full again.
We will sit in sacred circle together to create our rattles and then Shamanic Journey to enhance the connection between you and your newly made rattle and to know its particular medicine.
