“Medicine is the daughter of dream” – Iamblichus
On this day we will explore some of the rich story and myth around the plants as we welcome the solstice season. We will focus on these tales and places the plants lodge in our ancestral histories when we do our plant walk. We will see how the stories help to illuminate many aspects of the plants that might otherwise remain hidden. We’ll talk about dreaming and how to use plants to deepen or flavor our dreaming and work with dreaming herbs in our recipe demo. For our plant sit, we’ll have the chance to explore being more creative than usual. We’ll provide you with prompts to write your own story (with words or images!) with the land or a plant, drawing on the inspiration of Dr. Sharon Blackie’s work with Celtic mythology and the living world. If the weather is right, we may make a flower essence together.
