Native Teachings: Cultivating Hope Under the Flower Moon
A workshop and ceremony with author Evan Pritchard (Native New Yorkers)
In this earth-celebrating workshop we will honor the seasonal blue moon (the third of four springtime full moons) with story, ceremony and song, along with many Algonquin teachings about keeping a positive outlook based on understanding natural cycles. Hope sounds like Hype, and sometimes it is, but a hope based on a deep understanding of “Indian Time” will help us ride out the tough times. To every thing, there is a season. Natives used to stagger their crops—its all about timing. The May Moon is not only a time to pick flowers but to plant corn seeds. If you plant too early or gather too late, of course you are going to have a hard time. Get back in harmony with Grandfather Sun and Grandmother Moon and hope and patience become the same thing.

Cost: $20 if registered and prepaid by May 16th; $25 if registering after the 16th.
