Women’s Herbal Medicine Circle
**** Please note dates have changed ****
Re enchant your everyday life with plant spirit medicine. A women’s herbal medicine circle where you will learn to tap into that inner part of you, that’s always been there, that wild intuitive part, where the magic of this world resides. We often hear people say we learnt what plants we could or could not eat by watching animals. Animals instinctively know what medicine they need from the natural world around them. But we are animals. We were once wild. We did the same thing. And then we forgot. In the great domestication of the human species we enforced upon ourselves an amnesia causing civilisation. The connection to our inner wild, our intuition, our instincts was lost.
In this medicine circle you will learn how to reconnect and how to layer in your daily life the many petals, blooms and leaves of herbs that are magic, opening the gateway to the energetics of their healing properties as well as their functional, practical alchemies.
