Magical Herbalism Workshops



Magical Herbalism Workshops

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.

Magical Herbalism weekend

hosted by Nourish and Flourish with Fiona Morris 

Day 1: Magical Herbalism Workshop

The First day will be more experiential: we will be working deeply with several herbs and also doing a guided meditation.
Day 2: Elemental Herbalism Workshop. The second day will be  more didactic, focusing on the Temperament of Air, the Sanguine humour and its plants and physical indications in health and sickness.

We will work intensively with several herbs which are in season, this is the best way to tune into the deep knowledge  we all have within us. There will be time for feedback and group sharing  as well as a deep guided meditation to contact your own inner guide.

We will be using material from my new book Traditional Western Herbal Medicine  (Aeon Books, Feb, 2019)
