Making plant remedies is a great opportunity to connect in deeper with the spirit of a plant and learn from it.  This direct connection and communication brings more potency to the medicine you are making. Anyone can chop a herb and pour alcohol on it to get a tincture. But what happens when you do this physical process in co-creation with the spirit of the plant?  What happens when we listen and stay open to the plants wisdom?

We gain a medicine that is a thousand times more potent. We gain a medicine that will not only work on the physical body, but will work in the spiritual, emotional and mental realms, because you have touched and communicated with these in the process.

And in turn, the process will grow you.  We grow in ourselves being led through the specific energies that plant is already an expert at. We grow in learning directly about a plants properties by communicating with it.  We grow through the process so much that sometimes we don’t even need the medicine itself!

Anyone can hear nature’s messages, but it takes a little time, it requires deep listening, and the willingness to stay open.  We don’t need hallucinogenics for this, we are innately capable of connecting with natures wisdom (after all we are nature), but like any muscle it needs practice to strengthen it if it has become weak.

Our focus will be on deepening our connection with nature.  This is the real medicine!  We live in an age of disconnect.  How do we reconnect with our body knowledge and heart wisdom?  How do we reconnect with the real world around us?

Our connection with nature is a direct correlation with the connection to our own body.  When we realise this relationship, it becomes harder to keep treating her (both our own body and earth mother) in the power-over ways that have become so normal to us.  What if we started treating her with respect, care and love?  What happens when we listen to her?  This is the beginning of rewylding ourselves and the earth.

So let’s let go the rules, the old ways, let’s listen directly to nature.

Each plant spirit is as individual as each human.

Lets interact and create magical medicines from a cocreative space, with nature as our guide.

Each week we’ll make a different plant medicine so that you can learn the basics

tincture,

tisane,

flower essence,

homeopathic,

salve,

 and nature will be our guide.  She will be our teacher as to how we make and use these medicines.

As your human guide, I’ll provide you with practices and the materials to get reconnected and journeying deeper into nature’s realms….. and the rest is up to you and the plant spirits!

Amazing shamanic journeys, communing with nature realm and medicine making, so nurturing and supportive” LH

“I so appreciated participation in this course. Each week gifted me with inspiration and appreciation of a plant, spirit world and journey to form a deeper connection. Heidi’s facilitation was loving, clear and supportive. I enjoyed the harmony and alchemy between the metaphysicial and experiential processes. It was a beautiful reminder of deep listening and the healing that occurs in this space. Thank you Heidi.” RB

“The journey work I’ve done with Heidi has taken my connection to nature to another level, enabling me to recognize the spirit in all things, not just in the trees, but in the complex inner workings of all creation.” JC

 

Your facilitator, Heidi: With a long background (20 years) in herbs and homeopathy, I have always loved the grassroots aspect, the direct experience. I’ve held plant alchemy courses, nature connection (Earthwork) courses, and homeopathic proving circles over the years. While I’ve been lucky enough to have some of the best human guides in nature spirits and spiritual ecology…

(Dorothy MacLean of Findhorn, Kim Dudley (Hierophant School of Natural Medicine),  Kim Leyland (Foundation for Shamanic Studies), Jonathan Horwitz (Scandinavian Centre for Shamanic Studies), and Jane Hardwicke-Collings (School of Shamanic Womancraft)),

…the deep beauty of this work is that we are reconnecting with nature itself, that we are gaining guidance and information firsthand through direct experience and reawakening our core connection to nature.  For me this is where its at….  empowerment through direct connection to ourselves, and to nature.
