WHAT: Herbal Salve Workshop
DATE: Sunday 1 March
MORE: Herbal Salves are made by mixing botanical-infused oils with beeswax (or caranuba). They are an inexpensive and easy way to benefit from the healing properties of plants and can be made at home. Depending on the properties of the plant used, salves are used for everything from soothing chapped and dry skin, calming rashes and insect bites, healing minor burns and wounds, and alleviating muscle aches. With so many potential benefits, herbal salves can be useful homemade remedies to have in your medicine cabinet.
In this workshop, the student will gain hands-on experience making an herbal salve from scratch using the cold, solar-infused method. We will demonstrate the step by step process of salve making which includes using organic herbs to make a botanical-infused oil that students will prepare in class and take home for their own DIY salve. We will cover the healing benefits of lavender and calendula and students will also take home their own ready-made lavender salve. (The method covered will be general and can be substituted with the student's herb of choice when making it at home).
WHAT: THE YOGA OF PLANTS: THE INSTINCTUAL RE-EMERGENCE OF NATURE COMMUNICATION
DATE: Saturday 28 Februrary
MORE: We have evolved alongside plants since the dawn of time, their medicine facilitating ritual and reminding that we co-exist as intimately connected members of the larger community. We as humans have separated from the natural world as our home, and in so doing forgotten the great sensitivity we possess to intuitively experience truths in nature. Plants communicate in ways that we are not accustomed to any longer. Together we will reignite our instincts by experiencing plant communication techniques from a variety of indigenous and contemporary traditions, including journey work supported with shamanic drumming by Erin Rivera Merriman. As we relax into personal somatic knowledge, and group sharing of emergent wisdom, we will collectively arrive at a new awareness of the vibrant landscape of plants. This will enhance our ability to wild harvest plant medicine as well as help us to access the pleasure that arises in embracing the natural world as an extension of the self.
