Athena’s Shield: The Art of Self Protection

Date and Location:

Saturday, April 5th Time: 12:30 – 5:30 pm (mid-afternoon snack provided)

Blue Spark Art Studio (#210 – 2190 Fir Street, near West 6th Ave)

In this workshop we will:

• Honour what has wounded us and where we are vulnerable and where we are strong. • Explore magical and practical tools of self protection.

• Build a magical shield (materials provided including wood, hide, metal, and stones).

• Create pathways of knowing when to raise and when to lower our shields.

Some situations and circumstances are painful. They can leave us reeling, confused or feeling attacked. Other times we may find ourselves bundled up and over protected, regretting that our armour has isolated us from life. Here we will explore when to lower our shields and when to raise them using ritual and art to find balance, unexpected strengths, and ways of walking in the world. Come and explore the Art of Self Protection with us as we Wield the Shield. This work will be held in ritual space in a small intimate group.
