Medicine making is an important life skill that is making it's way back into the kitchens of Canadians!! We will explore various methods of using wild boreal plants for creating a rich and abundant home apothecary; including wild teas, tinctures, plant essences, syrups, vinegars, salves, creams, and other herbal remedies.
During this weekend we will also learn how to connect deeply with the sacred, life-force energy of plants.
Sacred-Spirit plant healing involves meeting the plant spirit or energy to influence healing of the human mind, body, spirit, and heart. This energy can be engaged on many levels including through the chakra system.
We will delve into the spiritual anatomy of the heart, the center of the chakra system, through guided meditation and by co-creating a vibrational plant essence and various other medicinal plant preparations.
Learning to make herbal medicines, cosmetics and foods in sacred community will help bring a deeper understanding and awareness of the natural world. Once you have made your own you will see, feel, and smell the difference from the commercial preparations that are often toxic to humans and the environment we live in.
Each participant will leave with a nice collection of herbal medicines that they created during the workshop and a new perspective on the energy of plants.
