Want to hone your intuition and take your plant knowledge up a notch? Join us at Charm School Vintage the first Monday of every month from 7:30-8:30 pm for our ongoing series of donation-based plant meditation circles.

A Plant Meditation, is a guided meditation intending to help one connect to the natural world and one’s inner knowing via the medium of plants. We study one plant per class, tasting, smelling, and feeling the plant in tincture, tea, or possibly other forms. We proof the medicine in very low dose, sit with the experience, and share our discoveries to come to an understanding of a common thread. A trained herbalist will provide some light teaching about the historical and contemporary use of the plant after the proofing. Enjoying the beginner's mind technique can be beneficial to anyone. No experience in herbalism needed. This is a fun way to meet new plant allies, and a very effective way to develop confidence in your intuition, and most importantly, you will learn much from sharing and witnessing other's experience.

Please arrive a few minutes early so we can start promptly at 7:30 pm, bring a notebook for recording your observations, and refrain from caffeine or large amounts of food for at least an hour before. There's no need to sign up, just come and we hope to see you budding herbalists there!

**Plant Meditations are part of Charm School's ongoing series of community classes. This costs $5 and will be donated to Herbalists Without Borders / United Plants Savers, but no one turned away for lack of funds. You can register online with the option of paying in person.**
