The Herbal Immersion
In fact, it's going to be a day of Plant Spirit Medicine and not a bit about pharmacy and chemistry (which will be the focus of all my summer lectures and intensives). INSTEAD... this immersion will be to delight in the enchantments and magic and myth and story and connection to the green world. We'll wander through moist spring-damp trails to discover the freshest newest plants arising from the earth and green tips on the shrubs and trees we call medicine. Participants will also gather on the woodland-sheltered deck of a lovely retreat house for a -playshop- where they'll indulge in all things sweet: herbal honeys! Together all will make and sample a wide and enjoyable variety of honey-based herbal potions including syrups and elixirs.
Of course there will be lots of delicious teas and even samples of meditative herbs, as all will learn about the special, sacred, holy plants that bless our ceremonies. Everyone will also relax and experience a light-hearted plant spirit meditation so you can begin your busy spring and summer with the grounding of connection to the natural world. Fun! Tasty! Completely relaxing. 9:45am until 4:30 pm, $125, bring a bag lunch.
Directions: From Old County Road turn onto Great Plains (just off the VH end of Old County Rd). Proceed down about 1.5 miles. House is on the right, number is on the tree.
