After offering a Land Acknowledgement we’ll begin with a teaching on sacred plant medicine history and types of plants used for specific intentions or ailments. We’ll discuss sustainable harvesting and alternatives to overharvested plants. We’ll explore lineages and proper offerings according to ancestors as well as the land we are harvesting from. We’ll visit the Andean and Native American Medicine Wheel gardens and explore what medicinal plants are planted there and their unique purposes. You will have private time to commune with the plants, practice "ayni" (sacred reciprocity) and gather fresh sprigs for your bundle or medicinal remedy. We’ll intentionally work with the plants as we further discuss ways we may benefit from the medicine of the sacred plants for cleansing, purification, protection, medicine and more. We’ll explore ancient ritual and ceremonial uses in various cultures around the world and discuss the importance of ritual embodiment. We’ll conclude our time together with a tea ceremony with delicious seasonal herbs from the garden.
