Prayer Pod ceremony:: Solstice 2017

On Solstice, Dec 21st, 2017.  The First Prayer Pod ceremony happened in Pennsylvania.

In a ceremony, I placed the 108 Prayer Pods on the Land, in the Western Burbs of Philadelphia—Berwyn PA.  

PrayerPods : request for prayers

Spirit speaks to each of us differently: in rich metaphors that we experience in a journey, sometimes with a flash of clarity and knowing in our waking day, and sometimes in dream state.  During the summer I had a dream, where I saw myself ceremonially placing seed pods in a hole on a hilly open landscape.  The seed pods contained prayers for healing the Planet.

Prayers for healing the Planet

During the summer I had a dream, where I saw myself ceremonially placing seed pods in a hole on a hilly open landscape.  The seed pods contained prayers for healing the Planet.

Since the Summer, I have been working on creating clay seed pods to be installed on the Earth. Each pod will contain a prayer for the Earth. The pods are made of local clay and the prayers are handwritten on paper. They will dissolve into the earth over the seasons. I am going to place the seed pods on the ground before December 1st, near Valley Forge Park in Pennsylvania.

Imagining :: Repetition

I had an opportunity to add the pods into a show in ArtSpace 1241, called Repetition this summer.  More importantly, this it gave me the opportunity to explore how the pods will be installed.

Started with a Dream

It started with a dream of the complete piece. and like any other dream the details have dissolved but the feeling, shape and concept remain.
In the dream i saw theses "seed" shapes, so I put up paper and started to draw what I felt.

Earth Healing installation

This past February, I was invited  to Elephant Butte, NM for an Artist-in- Residency program.  I went with the intention to do ‘something different.’ And different showed up! I created site-specific installations that expressed the energy of the place.

About a month ago, I had a dream where I saw myself ceremonially placing seed pods in a hole in a hilly open landscape.  The seed pods contained prayers for healing the Planet.

Started in a dream

It started with a dream of the complete piece.

And like any other dream, the details have dissolved, but the feeling, shape and concept remain.
 

In the dream I saw theses "seed" shapes in a hole in the ground, that is the same shape as the "seed" shapes. (seed-pod where not how I saw it in my dream, it is how my mind has learned to talk about them)

So I put up some paper and started to draw what I felt. Feeling and drawing. Then I tried to explore that shape in clay.
