Medicine Man Pouches for the Mystical Being


Learn to custom craft unique vessels for medicine, amulets symbolizing magic or your favorite petite treasures from the wise healer, Bobby Aalbers. We’ll use American Buckskin, hand crafted antler buttons, beads, and woodburning tools along with your unique style to craft a bag that’s all your own. To complement the lesson, a mindful journey of intention and grounding mediation will lead the class, (offered by Shaney Aalbers, Bobby’s daughter & Make & Mary Lifted Yoga Guide). We’ll have special smoking herbs to go along with the experience too. To keep us on a high frequency, Electric Lettuce will also be in house.

From Shaney— Friends of the Make & Mary Community, allow me to introduce one of the Medicine Men who influences my path…the most. I have traveled to 19 countries, studied under a number of modalities, techniques, methods, plant medicine ceremonies and schools; and this is the Man who authenticates a path like no other that I have experienced. 

Bobby was confronted with a prostate cancer diagnosis in the summer of 2013. He was told to entertain the allopathic course or else this cancer would metastasize to his bones.

Today, my Dad grows his own organic, hand groomed flower, makes his own RSO and chooses the edge of relating to his diagnosis with the wisdom of the plant versus the path of surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation. My Dad, Bobby, shares his medicine with those who cross his path - fellow humans who battle insomnia, chronic headaches, seizures, and many of the stages and phases of cancer.

This Medicine Man is my favorite Motorcycle Buddy, my best coach, my most enduring friend and teacher. My Dad makes and creates so much. With time on our side I am plucking skills from his experiential wisdom, making, building, repairing. I invite you to share in this time of co-creating pouches for authentic magic and mystical wonder. 

More about Bobby Aalbers: Once a professional bull rider and rough stock cowboy, Bobby has been a skilled timber faller and logger (15 years). He was a Carpenter (home construction & remodeling) for 20+ years, a fitness center owner/operator for 17 years, and motorcycle Enthusiast for 51 years …and more.
