About The Event

Stoking the Inner Flame: Herbal Support for Staying Healthy Throughout the Winter

We will be working with a blend of plants rather than just one plant for this month's class. The plants in focus are particularly helpful for keeping our immune systems and our spirits strong as we venture into the colder, darker months of the year.

In addition to learning about the healing abilities of each plant and how you can work with them this season to stay in optimal health, you will be making your own tea blend to take home with you :)

If you tend to feel depressed during the winter months, you are not alone. It is a major shift from the exuberant, outward-focused energy of the warmer months. Winter is a time of deep rest and rejuvenation where we have the opportunity to slow down, turn inward, and tend to what needs our most attention. This class will help you draw upon your inner fire to keep you warm, hopeful, and in high spirits no matter the weather outside. 


About these Monthly Plant Ceremonies:

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.  

What to expect throughout the ceremony:

-Materia Medica (information describing how the plant has been used 

therapeutically throughout the ages) including herbal actions on the body, folklore, and spiritual qualities

-Personal stories and experiences with the plant

-Ingesting the plant itself by eating, drinking tea, etc. 

-A guided meditative journey to connect deeper to the plant and its effect on you

-Space to journal, draw and reflect

-Time for sharing your experience with the group and listening to the experience of everyone else
