5.5 hours Class size 5 to 30     label $70 - $110 ($70 for Child (12-17 years), $110 for Adult)

Learn how to weave in a ceremony-style basket weaving circle on the Sunshine Coast, where each member of the group is honoured for their own special contribution to the group in a gentle, nurturing manner.

This is an open-hearted, fun and growthful experience for the beginner and experienced weaver alike, and a creative space full of shared wisdom and joy.

Prepare for a beautiful, grounding, skill-building and deeply immersive meditation on the practice of the ancient craft of weaving. It will be a sacred space to bring yourself, to be nurtured and held safely in a circle of like-minded souls, sharing and breathing and creating together.

Your teacher Rene will also introduce some embodiment practices and nervous system regulation skills for navigating challenging times, like breathing, visualisation and soul-to-cell toning, into the workshop circle.

At the end of this relaxing class, you will walk away feeling rejuvenated from this meditative experience and take home your own woven basket.
