December 2nd, 2017 : The Magic of Menstruation


The Magic of Menstruation

Sat December 2nd from 10am – 6pm

Suggested Donation: $100, none turned away for lack of funds

Who: Anyone who bleeds, has bled or will bleed is welcome.  Children most welcomed for any or all of the day.

Description…I firmly believe this knowledge is foundational to all who walk this world with a womb, and that reclaiming relationship with the magic of menstruation is essential to shift the tides towards healing at this time.  In the pre-modern world and still today in indigenous cultures that have retained their traditional ways- young women were given this knowledge and wisdom in sacred initiation when their moontide arrived.  In this workshop we will reclaim the sanctity of our moontime (menstrual time) and reclaim our womb wisdom and feminine power.  This workshop is for all who bleed, have bled or will bleed.

During this day together we will… 
 
– Explore ways to reclaim our relationship with the power and magic of the moontime through personal ceremony
– Explore and discuss cultures with traditions that honor the power and sanctity of menstrual blood
– Endeavor to untangle ourselves from the shame we inherit in “the curse” that our permeated our culture in regards to menstruation
– Explore ways to teach the young ones who have yet to menstruate about the power of their bodies, so that they don’t have to undo the wounding as we have
– Explore concepts and constructs of patriarchy and the effect this has had on the feminine spirit, discover techniques to reclaim the feminine spirit in our own selves to be vessels of divine love and creativity

Intro to Folk Herbalism: 10-week Intro Series

Begins Monday January 8th 2018 and runs 10 consecutive Mondays

Fee: $275 for the series.

Description… The Wise One lives inside and is longing to be remembered and reclaimed. Their rhythm is the rhythm of Nature, their rhythm is the rhythm of plants.  The Wise One knows how to be in relationship with Nature, the plants, the moon.  Deepen your connection with the Wise One within and empower your inner streams of wisdom and wild.  

In this class we will learn herbalism the Old Way, by mixing equal parts practical knowledge with intuitive empowerment; awakening our ability to learn directly from the plants themselves. We will reawaken our inner Wise One, the one who knows how to be in relationship with All Things, the one who knows the ways of healing and of herb craft. 

We will learn to make medicine in a sacred way, learn local plant allies whom we can find around our homes, and learn foundational techniques to ground our herbal studies in the sacred, wherever they may take us.

Over the course of this 12 weeks together you will…

  • Activate and deepen your connection with the Wise One within and your inner wisdom stream 
  • Awaken, empower and hone your own intuitive self while learning to communicate with and co-create with the plants
  • Learn the medicine of healing herbs through direct experience and take these intuitive skills to weave into your life, craft, or healing practice
  • Learn the foundations of Plant Spirit Medicine and how to work with plants as spiritual allies
  • Learn how to make sacred the art and craft of herbal medicine making

As a person who has been interested in herbal medicine for a while,studying with Lauren gave me the tools to go deeper and opened me up to information that I never knew I could access. The plants are much more then material objects and this class taught me how to create a deep relationship with them, I am so happy I found Lauren and would recommend her classes to anyone who loves herbs!”

“Lauren does such an amazing job of showing how to deepen our experiences with herbs in a sacred and spiritual way. She taught us how to make even the simplest acts while preparing herbal remedies so much more profound. I learned a great deal about tuning into the different qualities of the herbs and began to trust my own instincts as a result.”
