Magical Herbalism Workshops
are based on my book: A Woman's Book of Herbs
Working intuitively with herbs allows us to connect deeply with the character or virtue of the plant, which is often overlooked in book-learning materia medica.
Herbs are more than the sum of their parts, they can be our guides as well as our teachers, if we take the trouble to get to know them as individuals.
Sitting silently and tuning into individual herbs we discover their virtues and their actions on our physical, emotional and mental bodies as well as their use in ritual and ceremony.
What that gives us is a profound knowledge of the character of the herb, which we have experienced personally, so we can choose the correct remedy for treatment or exploration.
Experiencing a herb in this way is a never to be forgotten experience, you will always remember how they made you feel.
As teachers, herbs can show us our path, help us with our shortcomings and guide us on our healing journey.
No experience needed, just an open mind and willing heart.
