NEW! Ceremony of Life: Cultivating Sacred Practice and integration with plant teachers
When we acknowledge and honor plants as sentient and spiritual beings, there's an invitation to hold our own lives in a sacred manner. Honoring the wisdom of our beings and our lineage which resonates and connects with the wisdom of the plants sets the container for deep spiritual work and celebration of this miraculous experience of living. By cultivating this relationship through practice we can deepen intimacy with ourselves, integrating mind, body and soul through awakened perception and presence. In this workshop we will explore how to create an embodied practice of holding plants as teachers and guides for our sacred paths.

There is mystery and enchantment in the way that relationship between plants and humanshave evolved. For many generations much attention and listening was given to our beloved plant allies as our ancestors cultivated a relationship with plants where they could learn from them and their effect on us as medicine teachers and healers for ailments of the body and soul.
In the Amazon, our largest apothecary and home to some of the most dedicated and ancient stewards of the earth, the practice of plant dieting and courtship is still alive and present in many traditions in the area.
In this 3part class series we will be introducing some different methods of communing and inviting the spirit of a chosen plant to share with us their wisdom and medicine uniquely available for each of us. We will also learn how to incorporate these practices as part of your daily protocol to connect with source and our true nature.
