03-19-2022 -Self-Devotion: Herbal Care, Potions, & Preparations
Taking care of the earth is taking care of yourself; you can't do one without doing the other. Contrary to popular belief, we don't only exist in the natural world—we're also an integral part of it. The plants we share our environment have always known this, and in this workshop, you'll attune to their wisdom, allowing you to not only care for yourself, but the land you occupy as well. Learn how to:
- Cultivate relationships with herbal allies
- Connect with plants native to the land you live on
- Communicate with Source through the natural world
- Draw on your own intuitive knowledge of herbs to craft personalized medicine
- Commit to self-care as earth-care with consistency
Which plants do you count as your allies, and which do you call your teachers? In this introduction to herbal allyship, potion and tincture-making, and plant magic, letty of Flying Dog Heart Farms will teach you how to connect with your chosen plant allies, and use your own intuition and ancestral lineage as a guide. Letty will overview the following concepts:
- Wildrcrafting versus cultivation
- Herbs and plant allies you can work with right now
- Reciprocity with the land you live on
- How to genuinely and meaningfully connect with indigenous groups in your area
This is a live workshop, with a recording available for 2 weeks sent out to all registered participants.
