Sacred Plant Medicine Immersion...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This Sacred Plant Medicine Immersion is an opportunity to deepen your work with plant spirits and the sacred nature of plant medicine making. Each day you will work with one single plant allowing your connection to develop as you taste and study the body of the plant before journeying to meet the plant spirit. You will then deepen the experience as you harvest in a sacred manner and continue on to make remedies. Depending on the plant of the day the remedies you make will include two or more of the following each day: tinctures, liquid extractions, syrups, oils, salves, vinegars, foot baths, limpias, skin washes, decoctions, essences...

At the conclusion of our time together you will have the confidence to treat yourself with home remedies and make your own wild and sacred first aid kit. You will have found plant allies and spiritual medicine from the plant realm. You will also have developed a deep connection to the plant realm and have cultivated a sense of belonging among your green relations.

This work involves dropping into your body and working with your senses to understand each individual plant nature and begin the communication process with plants, body to body. You will also drop deeper, into your heart, to communicate directly with the feeling of the plant to understand it's spiritual medicine. Dropping further still you will enter the dream state, to journey and adventure with plant spirits where they can show you their realm, a true deepening of your individual relationship with each plant we study.
