Paper Prayer

Paper Prayer: Living Through Loss Counselling Society of BC

This Paper Prayer quilt is inspired by the tradition of Tibetan prayer flags believed to send out blessings on the wind into all pervading space. These prayer flags include powerful ritual utterances intended to transform bad fortune into good fortune. It is hoped that the making and hanging of this quilt will bring good will and compassion to all. My wish and prayer is that all hearts in this world will heal: “May we all learn how to be kind to ourselves and others. May we always approach ‘difference’ with care, curiosity and creativity.”


Downtown Eastside Centre for the Arts is auctioning Paper Prayer as part of the Fabric Arts Program 2009 – Community Quilt Project.
