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
