The Herbal Medicine of Trees
Trees, the elders of the plant world, give us breath and beauty, and their leaves, barks, flowers, fruits and seeds offer us physical and spiritual medicines. This evening we will learn hands-on tree identification skills and explore many of the healing properties of the trees that surround us. A tasty “tree tea” will also be served.
Thursday, May 1, 8–10pm
Herbs are truly magical—they can awaken us to the magic available in every moment and help reconnect us to the natural world and our true selves. Lavender can help heal a broken heart; linden blossoms can open doorways for communing with fairies; and Artemisia helps us remember our dreams. Even a common culinary plant such as basil has a rich heritage of sacred and magical uses. Come learn how to use these and a variety of other herbs as teas, oils, and lucky charms. A “magical” tea will be served.

Herbs to Deepen Spiritual Awareness and Intuitive Wisdom
Plants can help us deepen our sense of connectedness to Spirit and cultivate trust in our own inner wisdom. We’ll explore ways to use herbs such as sage, grandmother cedar, cronewort/mugwort, cinquefoil, and rose as teas, tinctures, infusions, anointing oils, ointments, smokes, and baths—to help open our “third eye,” guide our dreams and trance journeys, create safe and sacred space, and evoke healing visions in meditation, ritual, and ceremony.
