 Wisdom from the Plants workshop

Wisdom from the Plants: A Plant Spirit Medicine Workshop Series in the Poudre Canyon

Saturday, September 22nd, 2018 - Connecting with Roots-- Earth Medicine: How Plants Guide Through Rooting Down into our True Nature

Join staff Certified Herbalist Brita LaTona for this workshop series to connect with the power of plant medicine for transforming and healing our lives.

We will delve into the practice of “Heart Perception” and what it means to tune into healing from a psycho-spiritual perspective.

In some cultures disease is looked at as a primal disconnection from our True nature, and a basic forgetting of who we are. In this workshop series we will discover tools that can help aid us in this deep remembering again.

We will explore Plant Spirit Medicine, ethnobotany, metaphor and symbolism with plants for healing, herbs for meditation, and more.

We will also create nature plant mandalas, practice stream of consciousness writing/journaling with plant allies, and learn about important sacred, local medicinal plants in this region.

Finally we will learn the basics of herbal medicine making.
