Frolic with the Fairies, Dance with the Devas
Plant Spirit Medicine Just For You
with Susun Weed

chives-798538_960_720

Expand into oneness with the Earth, with Nature, with Green Blessings and Susun Weed. Get ready to open yourself to the inhabitants – visible and invisible – of the CoSM forest. The tree devas welcome us. Flower fairies giggle at us. And the plants themselves seek us out.

 You’ll have an extraordinary time spending the day learning about forest walking and the myriad practical, medicinal, edible, and spiritual uses of trees and forest ephemerals. An opening talking stick ceremony allows you to help guide the class so it meets your individual needs, and offers you an opportunity to share your health concerns.

The last part of the workshop finds us picking a wild salad and enjoying it with herbal vinegars and oils (and perhaps and herbal wine) during our dinner time. With song and story, with humor and imagery, Susun wants to open your heart and your mind to green magic and green medicine.
