Class # 121
Class Title Plant Spirit Medicine Series, A 10-week Immersion into Plant Spirit Medicine, Psychic Plant Communication & Herb Magic
Instructor Lauren Herold
Details This 10-week immersion will guide you safely into the realm of plant spirit medicine, or working with plants as spiritual allies. It was not so long ago that the laughter of trees and songs of the green were simply a part of the Way of Things.  While all knew that plants spoke, the role of the healer, or cunning one, was to be in deep relationship and apprenticeship with the plant spirits themselves. It was these relationships that were called on for healing.
Awaken, empower and hone your own psychic senses and intuition while learning to communicate and co-create with the plants.   Learn the medicine of healing herbs through direct experience, and take these communication skills with you to weave into your life or healing practice. Class will include hands-on sacred medicine making experience, guided meditations, and herbal teachings.  Much fun will be had throughout! This course also serves as an introduction to the craft of herbalism and walking the way of Herbalist in the Folk tradition.

You Will Receive…
Direct experience and deeper relationship with your own psychic senses and intuition
Understanding of the language of plants - how they communicate with you & how you may better listen
Practical tools for building relationship & spiritual authority within the natural world
Techniques for incorporating plant spirits into healing for self and others

This week we will learn how to make herbal creams and essential oil spritzers. Creams and lotions are truly magical preparations that bring two liquids that repel one another, water and oil, together with the help of an emulsifier. Creams and lotions have a short shelf life and are one of the preparations that manufacturers put a lot of preservatives in that can be toxic to your health. Essential oil spritzers are all the rage on the market right now, but many are made with synthetic fragrances that can cause serious allergic reactions. Come learn how easy and cost effective it is to learn how to make your own therapeutic products.

Tinctures and glycerites are one of the more expensive preparations to purchase on the market, yet are relatively easy to make and are far more cost effective when make at home. We will also cover how to effectively dilute down essential oils to make them safe to use by making alcohol based essential oil spirits.
Students should bring 2 one ounce sized tincture bottles and 1 one ounce sized tincture bottle with a spritzer top to take product home in.
