Event description

Description

The path of the Plantwitch is about magic and medicine that is deeply rooted in the world and in the web of life. It’s about a connection to the earth that is of all realms-- physical, emotional, mental and spiritual, and the way that we as practitioners, healers, and lovers of both the mystic and manifest worlds can blossom to our fullest potential and passion when we harness the power of the edgewalker and bring the magic of the other world into this one, every day, into a culture of constant disconnection and distraction by way of cars, concrete, social media, buzzwords, and processed food.

This weekend we will explore the foundational practices of the PlantWitch, beginning with an utterly witchy ritual to wake up your inner knowing, your ancestral memory, make a wild brew, and in-drink our knowing from a place of deep intentions for healing, the healing of our ancestors and descendants, and Mama Earth​, and ​culminating in Autumn Equinox ​Herbal ​Magic.

“..There is another way of seeing. One that acknowledges both what was and the mystery of what will be. One that recognizes each fallen tree and also greets the mystery...What is at once most threatening, and most powerful, about these witches of our collective ancestry, was their ability to see.”

-- Asia Suler, One Willow Apothecary

We'll focus our time together on these 4 essential elements of nourishment and healing:

1.) Mother Nature: Connecting to nature in viscerally, through magic, ritual, and opening our minds and hearts to her mysteries, we potently remember that we are channels for our work in the world, bringing a deeper power and effectiveness to all we do.

2.) The Divine Feminine: we are in the midst of an upwelling of feminine consciousness and reclaiming the wisdom ways of sacred ceremony, herbal knowledge, magic, surrender and deep presence.

3.) The Wisdom of the Body: When we awaken the power we hold in our bones, our cells, and the spirals of our DNA, we are able to harness the energy and self-confidence that comes from being in tune with our true selves. We'll open up our stuck places and move out of resistance and old patterns, bringing in fresh vitality through gentle movement, detoxifying herbal teas, and nourishing farm-to-table food.

4.) Soul-Care: When we attune to the care of our souls and spirits, we come into alignment with an inner-compass that allows us to move forward with clarity, generousity, inspiration and consistent momentum and motivation.

You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
For a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body
love what it loves.
-- Mary Oliver, "Wild Geese"
