For millennia people have made medicine for the body and psyche through direct relationship with nature. This knowledge is our birthright. Awakening our senses to the energetics of healing is something we can access with intention and creativity. In this class we will look at the history, myth, science, and art of magical herbal preparations. We will experience first hand local shamanic plants and learn to make our own tincture for creativity and enhanced intuition. Our work with plants will open us to further transformational healing and connection to the natural world.
*Please bring a towel or small blanket to sit on, as we will be working on the floor.
