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

December 15 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

WINTER SOLSTICE – Dark of the Light Workshop

As our environment is fully rooted earthward and our focus turns toward the liminal and dreaming spaces, we focus on restoration and peace so that our bodies can relax and allow more being than doing. Much like the plants, we need to honour the depths of ourselves and keep our roots protected so that as the light returns we can rise rooted and strong again for another glorious spin around the sun. We will also craft an herbal beeswax based balm.

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.
