Wildcraft ~ Dreaming with Plants

THE COURSE : THE VENUE : BOOKING

 

A practical year long course exploring our spiritual connection to plant spirits of the British countryside.

THE COURSE

What level of experience is needed?

You'll need at the very least basic understanding of shamanic journeying and/or meditating. Openness and willingness to work with plant spirits, the spirit of nature within a British pagan/shamanic context.

What will I learn?

Eight practical, experiential workshops where you will learn, through ritual, mediation, shamanic journeying and physical interaction with plants, how to connect and interact with the spirits of these plants to inspire, grow, heal and deepen your connection to self and nature. Through practical techniques and ritual you will encounter a variety of British plants and their spiritual essence, their magic, their healing, allowing the plants to carry you on a journey to truth, wisdom, insight and learning. These workshops will include basic plant identification, foraging techniques and shamanic techniques to harness the power of these plants. You will also craft a 12inch deer skin foragers drum, an offering pouch and silver branch (a bardic 'rattle').
