A Five Petaled Herbal Practice; Summer Solstice (half-day workshop)

June 23 @ 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm

SUMMER SOLSTICE – Light of the Dark Workshop

Summer Solstice marks the light cycle as it begins to fall back toward darkness, growth and harvest become the focus, and supporting our energy to sustain this active part of the season. We will spend time outside identifying plant medicines and will also craft our own herbal oil to take home.

This is part of a four part series exploring fluctuating needs of our body in relationship to plants and the cycles of light throughout the solar year. Each workshop contains a learning component, a unique herbal tasting menu, as well as hands on medicine making.

Each Equinox and Solstice we will gather to apply the foundations of our herbal practice to the season at hand. Orienting your herbal practice toward the unchangeable cycles of light help to anchor us into a cohesive rhythm of sense of connection to our place here as humans, held between the earth and sky.

We will explore the following 5 concepts, and discover how they relate to each season: NOURISH, TONIFY, DIGEST, SOOTHE, and RITUAL.

Each participant will co-create a tea blend with Meghan, made with hand harvested herbs from her farm for that season to bring home.

Note: We encourage you to experience this full cycle of workshops but registration for individual workshops in this series is available.
