Beauty in the Darkness: Crafting Earth Altars in Troubled Times, PORTLAND OR

  • River View Cemetery

Join MorningAltars founder Day Schildkret & Life-Cycle Celebrant Holly Pruett for a day of beauty-making to honor the darkest season and the grief of these troubled times. Creating Earth Altars is an ancient practice found in many cultures to honor milestones, process hard emotion, connect with the land and ancestry, and just bring more beauty to our lives.

We'll gather for this rain-or-shine outdoor event at Portland's historic, nonprofit River View Cemetery, the region's leader in natural burial. Day will teach us his seven-step process to create impermanent earth altars, working with the land and found materials.

Spend the day in nature making art and meaning. Use your hands and creativity to express your emotions, intentions and blessings for the new year, and to ground the collective grief of these troubled times.

No experience necessary. Bring a sack lunch (or visit a Johns Landing business for lunch). Dress to be outdoors. In the unlikely event of extreme winter weather conditions, registrations will be honored at a springtime event.

Join Day Schildkret and Daniel Foor for a day of ritual tending in Wildcat Canyon to feed your blood ancestors and the many spirits of place with earth beauty and land art. As the autumn veils begin to thin, access to our loved ones on the other side grows stronger. We'll spend the day learning a seven-step process to create earth altars. Working with the land and found materials we'll ritually feast and commune with both our recent and older lineage ancestors for personal healing, empowerment, and the well-being of our families. Through shared time in embodied, heart-centered ritual we'll also honor the collective movement into Autumn, the upcoming Rosh HaShanah Jewish New Year holiday, and our connection with the land and peoples in the Bay Area.

No experience necessary. No one turned away for lack of funds. Expect some gentle hiking over the course of a day on the land. For details or to register, direct questions/paypal to: ancestralmedicine@gmail.com.
