Medicinal Plants & Meditation

Have you ever noticed how you feel most at ease after a long walk in nature or a few hours in the garden? Well, there a good reason for that! For as long as we can date back, our ancestors have been doing something simple, yet incredible, that we know longer know how to. They were communicating with Plants. Before modern medicine, our healing came from the plant life that grows in our backyards, most of which we now regard as weeds. And our ancestors knew not only how to use these plants to treat ailments, but also how to communicate directly with the spirit of a plant to learn how to best use it's medicine, receiving teaching from the plant itself. Plant life is a whole world that most of us find ourselves completely out of tune with. Join us for an evening of reconnecting and learning how to engage in the simple act of connection that makes the heart feel full and loved. We will talk about simple ways to reconnect with plant life, have a tea ceremony, guided meditation with plants, and time to talk and share. 

Ages: Most suitable for adults of all ages.

Materials: No supplies are necessary, but feel free to bring a notebook for jotting down notes!
