The dream catcher, which originated with the Ojibwe indigenous American tribe, was used to trap dreams as they flew by. The positive dreams knew how to slip through the dream catcher and slip down the feathers to the person sleeping below. The bad dreams, not knowing the way, became entangled in the web and evaporated with the first light of day. The circle represents the cycle of life. The four spokes represent the four directions, the four colors of man and the four faces of man (physical, mental, emotional and spiritual). Basic materials and construction will be provided to make your own personalized dream catcher at this workshop. If there are special mementos or gemstones you would like to include, please feel free to bring them along. Register by emailing Winni Flynn at firstname.lastname@example.org.
