What is a prayer shawl?
A prayer shawl is a knitted, crocheted, sewn, or woven shawl that has been made in a meditative gesture, prayed and blessed with the intention of providing healing and comfort to a person in need. This person may be going through any number of emotional traumas related to loss of a loved one, illness, injury, divorce, etc.
Who is involved?
Anyone who chooses to knit, crochet, sew, or weave can be involved. You do not need to be a member of a specific faith or belief system to make a prayer shawl. You may or may not know the person who the shawl is for when you start to make it or you may have the intention of making it for one person and it goes to another.
While this is strictly a non-profit venture money and time is put forth by volunteers to make these wonderful shawls. If you feel the need you are welcome to donate in order to facilitate the production and dispensal of shawls (yarn for future shawls, money to help with purchase of yarn and shipping costs, or a made shawl!)
If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, wish to participate or make a request for a shawl please contact:
Rev. Naware Danaus, RMT of PhoenixFlame Healing Center
