Flatbread, Fry Bread, & Tortilla’s – Sacred Food of the Ancients and Today

This will be a multi-day Immersion into the Sacred Art of all that is the Flat Bread.  We shall gather our ingredients, infuse them with Love, Healing and Nurturing Vibes.  This bread will be the bread we break, eat and share with our community, family and friends the entire weekend.  We’ll start on Thursday and be ready for our Banquet on Saturday.  Participation is open to as many who wish, all ages welcome!  There is nothing more sacred than caring for our loved ones, nothing more grounding than eating good, nutritious and wholesome food.  Join me and help knead with your own hands positive vibrations that will help us to grow and connect with each other.  I’ve always believed that a well nourished and healthy body, heart and mind can only impart goodness, spread kindness and quite possibly be the catalyst that changes a person’s outlook.  Let’s take care of each other. – Miria
