Life is a constant weaving. By choosing to weave wisely, the seeds that one wishes to harvest can be planted. Each moment is a new moment, an opportunity to show up in presence and prayer.
This workshop teaches how to crochet-weave the sacred mochilas, the traditional handbags of the Wayu tradition, or the ancestral way (nudo tejido ancestral).
The weaving of the mochila which is symbolic for the uterus and therefore stands for the weaving of life, is done by women. During the weaving, the strands are collected from grandmothers, taking the yarn from the cosmic source of the creative weaving goddess. The weaving of a mochila connects women to their heart of creation and to the birth of all things, the womb of the Mother and the feminine power of love and creativity.
Mochilas are power objects – objects that have been made in prayer and intention, in reverence for all of Creation, sacred items that help to activate one’s being to the frequency of remembrance and help one to always walk in prayer. Creating one’s own power objects helps to bring prayers into manifestation.
The Workshop takes place in the mornings from 8:30am – 1pm.
