Why Plant Spirit Medicine?
For thousands for years, humans and plants have lived together. We are family. Our plant relatives are generous and helpful, offering us food and medicine. Like us, plants have spirit, and their spirit can nurture and heal us. Plant Spirit MedicineSM uses the spirits of plants to bring us into balance and harmony. It is the shaman’s way with plants. A millennial practice known to all peoples, it was rediscovered in the West by Eliot Cowan, and has proved as effective in today’s world as in times past.

In this season of Late Summer we will tune into the energies of Harvest and Abundance. This is a time for nurturing ourselves and giving thanks for the many gifts of our plant allies and the endless bounty provided to each of us by our Mother Earth. It is a time for exploring our relationships with those who have nurtured us in countless ways and those whom we, in turn, nurture.
In this 4 hr workshop, you’ll be guided through both a Field Study and a Dream Journey with Western Red Cedar, Thuja plicata. Bring your journals or sketchpads and your best noticing skills. We’ll bounce between indoors and inwoods as well as inward and outward. We’ll spend individual time with a Cedar tree in the forest and then come inside for the Dream Journey component.
