Completed my Traveling Meditation Altar! Rather than going nuts with decor I tried to keep it close to nature as possible. I lined the lid, bottom and inside of the Altoids tin with real birch bark that Paul brought home. Then I pasted a Chakra card that came with my stones on the lid, and did a bit of decoupage for the OM. Crystals: Rose Quartz, Clear Quartz w/Buddha and Amethyst. The candle is sitting on the back of a pocket watch; only missing a small pack of matches.

[Representing North] Altar of Extinction by the Reclaiming Tradition (my path - TB) for the California Grizzly Bear. One of a series of altars for extinct species. Simple large black cloth is effective and mournful.
