About The Event
In this current technological age, if we wish to learn about anything, we have the convenient ability to Google all that we desire to know about. We have limitless information at our hands about absolutely anything from all sorts of perspectives. On one hand, this is remarkable and helpful. On the other hand, this can lead to overwhelm, confusion, and superficial understanding.
When our ancestors wished to learn about something, they had to learn directly through experience. In the context of herbal medicine, they learned from the plant itself.
This was achieved through close observation of the shape, form, color, growing conditions, etc. that indicated its medicinal qualities. There was a pathway of communication that existed between plants and people, The plants don't have voices to speak, but rather a language of their own that is translated through their very genetic makeup.
As humans, we can perceive the messages of plants by shifting into a perception of increased awareness. Moving out of only using our mental faculties to learn and stepping into learning with all of our senses engaged.
These plant ceremonies are a way to remember the lost art of learning from the plants themselves as well as having an intellectual understanding of them. When we reorient the plants and the whole of nature as healers, teachers, and guides, we humbly ready ourselves to grow and evolve. These ceremonies also lend an opportunity for you to go inward and connect to your inner sense of wholeness, leading to a renewal of vitality and connection to life.
This is for anyone looking to learn about plants from a holistic perspective and how they can be used to facilitate healing and growth. If you feel called to deepen your connection to nature in the company of a like-minded community, this is the space for you.
