Workshop Spotlight: Sacred Intuitive Wild Harvesting

As medicine makers, connections to the natural world and its benefits are innate. Following the doctrine of signatures, tried and true ways, intuition; we carry knowledge wisdom and confidence in our medicine. It’s not always so when wild harvesting the plants. For many, the language of the plants can be sporadic, mixed and hard to decipher. We tend to fall to standards or schools of thought when it comes to harvesting. Though a good starting point, every plant is unique with its own story, ways to give and be used. When we tend nature’s garden, know the plants on a deeper level, connect with them and follow their lead, their medicine is better, the plants are healthier and you can leave nature better than you found her.

This workshop is suitable for Teens and Adults
