Men's Medicine Shield Weekend

Come join your brothers as we get to know one another in the way of the Native Warrior. Spending time together, sharing meals, doing a Sweat Lodge, and just talking will allow us to gain knowledge of each other and ourselves.

We will also create individual medicine shields. Your medicine shield is the representation of you. It is to be placed at the entrance of your Lodge, so that all who enter will know who they can expect to encounter.

Bring items you think would belong on a Shield, (stones, feathers, beads, shells, or anything else) to add to the mix of craft items for building Shields. You will also need your camping gear, food and drink, (we will have a pot luck meal following the Sweat Lodge on Saturday Night) and anything else you think you may need.

The Men's Medicine Shield Weekend will be on Friday, March 13 through Sunday, March 15 at All World Acres in the Tampa Bay area. The gathering will be facilitated by Grey Ghosthawk;

The full event admission cost is only $30. This includes all activities and camping for the entire weekend. Admission will be $35 at the gate. Please register early which will greatly help the facilitation of the gathering.

There will be a potluck feast after the Lodge on Saturday night so please bring a food item to share.

Please note that this is a weekend experience. Please make plans to attend the entire gathering.
