A few scenes from last year’s Harvest Festival 🍂 Our next event is coming up this weekend, Saturday, September 7th @spontcel in JP. Join us for a day of free herbal classes, yoga, an herb swap and a lively local market. Find out more at @herbstalk . I’ll be offering an outdoor talk at the event at 1pm: “Circling Together: Darkness to Hope.” The full description is below... 💚✨#herbstalk #herbstalkcommunitygardens #communityherbalism We are living through challenging, tumultuous and unprecedented times. As our global consciousness expands so does our awareness of the collective wounds of the world, which can leave us feeling overwhelmed and powerless. In this circle we will feel into the darkness and trauma of these times. We will then tap into the medicine of plants, movement, meditation and — most importantly — community to envision a more hopeful future and a more harmonious way of being on this beloved planet. Come willing to share and ready to receive.
Late summer abundance: elecampane flowers, rose hips, sage, hyssop, echinacea, fennel, calendula... making medicines with all of these healing beauties 💚 #herbsforeverydayliving #homeherbalism
Circling together ✨ If there’s anything I’ve learned over the past decade of teaching and facilitating community events it’s the realization of how powerful it is when people come together with the same intent, wishes and vision. There is much we can do and accomplish on our own, but it pales in comparison to what a like-minded, heart-centered group of people can create, shift or heal. This is why everything I do in my work is now centered around bringing people together to learn and share with one another, specifically about the healing qualities of the natural world. I’m so grateful and honored to do this work and I invite you all to take part if you feel called — there are many, many teachers and guides out there whose work is also to connect us back with Nature. The world needs us all to come together with a new vision and a different way of being and living on our beloved Earth. Here are a few ways you can connect & learn more coming up in the Boston area: 🍃 @herbstalk ‘s Harvest Festival on September 7th at @spontcel in JP: free herbal talks & plant walks & a local marketplace 🍃 Herbs for Everyday Living: learn how to connect with the herbs in a warm & supportive environment; taught by @herbqueendom 🍃 Land, Spirit & Season: my newest offering which involves a small circle of women following the seasonal cycles, and stepping into our power as stewards & guardians of the lands we live upon I truly believe these tumultuous times are calling for a return to the Earth, for connecting our hearts with her heart, and for awakening a deep part of ourselves that has been forgotten and repressed for too long. Now is the time to remember our true selves in relation to the Earth, and to one another.
When we gather together beauty and magic are created; when we remember and honor the earth harmony is restored. ✨ Many thanks to our flower crown sisters who joined us last night and @clairefdelevingne for a powerful ceremony. In gratitude 🙏🌿💫
Joining with you all in the #moonteacircle and sending love out to all the living beings and lands who need our solidarity. What the external world shows can easily lead us to despair... but please keep holding your light and keep hope in your hearts. Our vision for the world — the kind of beautiful world we all want to live in — will help us continue on.
Our first flower crown ceremony is this Sunday, August 18th. Together we will connect with the realm of flowers through teas, essences, meditation and of course by creating your own flower crown. I’m honored to co-create this offering with the inspired @clairefdelevingne . More details are in my profile link - a few more spots remain for Sunday! ✨🌸🌻🍃
