Mugwort Lucid Dreaming Workshop
Wednesday November 23
Mugwort or Artemisia vulgaris is known as the Oldest of Herbs, Una; having the power to invite us to enter lucid states. Acting directly on the pineal gland also called the ‘seat of the soul’ this herb is a magical doorway in the liminal worlds. We shall be exploring her medicine, folklore and magic on this sensory workshop. Plenty of tastings and connection with plant spirit. We shall be working with a meditation based on yoga nidra to delve deeper. Please bring pens and paper, a large mixing bowl, some lunch to share and an open heart.
On this sensory workshop we will be tasting, touching, smelling, drawing and smoking mugwort to delve into a joint exploration of her many gifts.
