''I wanted this blanket to encompass the safety, beauty and connection that make Full Moon ceremonies special. These ceremonies were how I bridged the physical and spiritual world, and was the first type of ceremony I ever attended. I connected deeply with the Full Moon – our grandmother – who in the physical world for me was an incredible matriarch and someone that passed away at a pivotal time in my life. When I attended a Full Moon ceremony for the first time, it felt like I could continue to have a relationship with her and like I was being wrapped in love, much like the purpose of this blanket.
Full Moon ceremonies give us an opportunity to connect with our Grandmother Moon, who guides all water on earth – including the Great Lakes, oceans, rivers, and the water that makes up most of our physical bodies. She represents femininity and life cycles – including our moon times and birth – since where there is life, there is water.
“Ceremony” brings you comfort and warmth, and was designed to look like we are sitting in a Full Moon ceremony together. There are ribbon skirts on one end, and ribbon pants on the other – representing how our modern ceremonies are inclusive and welcoming of all identities. I included berries and water to include the elements brought into ceremony. The skydomes along the sides represent the connection to the spirit world. Finally, the symmetry represents the importance of duality and balance, a teaching we must always carry in our bundles. '' -Morningstar
