A Taste of Plant Spirit Medicine
Plant Spirit Medicine is an ancient healing modality reintroduced by contemporary American healer and shaman, Eliot Cowan. It recognises that plants have a living spirit and that spirit is the most powerful form of healing.
Pip Waller is a medical herbalist, author of two books, 'Holistic Anatomy' (2010) and 'The Domestic Alchemist' (2015) and a qualified practitioner of PSM who will introduce this fascinating subject in a one day introductory workshop at Pip's home in Llangollen.
Whist many of us have made sustainable choices in our diet and consumption habits, have we really considered the full healing potential available to us from plants?
The workshop introduces connecting and building deep relationship with nature and the plant spirits. It is good as a stand-alone experience to better understand what this extraordinary medicine is about, and to deepen connection with divine nature, or as an enticement to further study.
Pip will include an investigation of Woad (Isatis Tinctoria) from The Wild Dyery’s garden, a plant with a rich and mystical history in the British Isles that was used for thousands of years to colour clothing (and people!) blue. What are the implications of colouring our clothing with healing plants? Can the properties transfer to create positive health benefits? Were our ancestors more connected to the spiritual essence of their natural environment and is this the balance we need to heal our current environmental issues?
Join us to deepen your connection and reverence for the healing potential of plants on Saturday 12th November.
