Event description

Description

Hi I’m Kathie, medical herbalist at thewyldeherbalist.com and founder of Into the Wylde. As well as the medicinal side of herbs, I also have a deep fascination with, and wonder for, the emotional, spiritual, historical and folkloric side of these wonderful plant allies. Getting to know the character of a herb in this way deepens our understanding of how it can be used and we start to create a mutually beneficial relationship with it.

And I love sharing this with you, so that we can all get a bit more acquainted with these herbs, many of which grow and live amongst us in London.

In this series of workshops I aim to bring to you one plant a month to journey with and get to know on a deeper level. As a group we will:

  • Experience the plant on a on an emotional, mental and magical level through meditating with the plant
  • Experience the plant on a physical level, with our senses and through imbibing it as a water infusion
  • We will then take a break and reveal what plant we have been working with
  • Then delve into the literature to find out about the properties of the plant, its uses and its habitat as determined by science and clinical use, plus the folklore and beliefs surrounding it

Takeaways will be:

  • A deeper connection and relationship to this plant ally
  • Understanding better how to use this herb in your daily life
  • And a better understanding of any insights this plant may have for your life
  • How to nurture or forage for this plant

Each month’s herb will only be revealed in the middle of the session, so that we get a true chance to work with our intuitions, and each month the herb will be different.

Please bring a notebook for any notes, plus any art materials you may feel inspired to use in the session.

All workshops are limited to 11 people and tickets are on a first come first serve basis, via Eventbrite.

I can’t wait to meet you!
