Altar Crafting and Online Sharing

Add to iCal or Google Calendar


You are invited to a shared spiritual practice with the Salal + Cedar community.

During the coming week take some time to create an altar and spend time there. No rules, just suggestion and invitation: Simple or elaborate. Your first or your 712th. Ephemeral or lasting. If you are able outdoors, near a window, or incorporating natural elements. Build one, or more than one, come back to it later, notice how this kind of practical, tactile, praying feels for you. Make it solitary and secret, build it together with your household, leave it for others to add to. Add food to entice wild and feral collaborators. Remember an ancestor or a loved one. Celebrate a colour. Create a pattern. Beautiful or ugly, happy or sad, asking or telling, all of the above.

If you would like to, take a picture and share it with us on the facebook post, or by email:

If you wish, write a little note about your experiences. Those who wish to can join in a time of online reflection on Saturday, May 23 at 4pm online. E-mail for the link and we will send that out later.
