Something flashes just at the edge of your vision and disappears into the woods.
Faint music drifts through the air on a night when the air is thick with the scent of Apple blossoms.
Many cultures have stories of other worlds – faerie realms separated from our own world by a thin veil. Of people disappearing into worlds of wonder and peril – and those who come back to tell the tale coming back transformed. And in many of those stories and traditions, plants guard the entrance to those worlds.
In this workshop, you will meet plants traditionally associated with the border between this world and the realms of magic, and look at the ways the folklore about these plants relates to their medicine and their ecology. You will spend time with Hawthorn, Datura, Black Cohosh, Ghost Pipe, and Wood Betony, coming to know each plant in a new way.
Please wear comfortable clothes. Bring a notebook, pen, water, and food to keep you comfortable during the day. We’ll have folding chairs, but if that’s not comfortable for you, you’re welcome to bring your own chair or seat cushions. Many dining options are available in Old Town for lunch during our break.
Please call Humboldt Herbals at (707) 442-3541 with any questions or for additional information.
