In a modern world so removed from the wild green, how do we as plant-loving devotees, get back in touch with the language of the botanical? Just because plants do not communicate in words does not mean they are not conscious. They are very much sentient beings, and highly intelligent, ancient ones at that. They are in constant correspondence with each other, the Earth, and potentially us – if we simply listen.
A deeper level communication with flora can be forged through psychic attunement, meditation, intention, and paying attention to sensory and emotional impressions. To read about a plant and its uses, history, and healing aspects is one thing, and a powerful thing at that. But to see and sense and deeply feel these same things in our inner selves is another, even more powerful thing. It can be truly life-changing to re-learn the art of receiving information from our subtle perceptions and from the plants themselves. Many of us were told as children that plants can’t talk, nor can trees or stones or rivers, and so we forgot how to listen and how to understand them.
Won’t you join us in rewriting that story for ourselves?
This is a class for those interested in engaging with the subtle vibrations of the plant world. Let’s get together with some plant friends and see what of their wisdom arise for us as individuals and in community. After the plant sits, there will be opportunities to share your experience and discuss with the collective. Teachings about the featured plants from the perspective of western herbalism, European folk traditions, and magical practices will be shared.
Class will be held on Wednesday nights once monthly January through November, featuring different plants each month. You are welcome to drop-in and out of the series at any time, $20-35 sliding scale. No prior experience of any kind is necessary to enjoy this work.
