About The Event
Part of walking the path of the witch involves forming relationships with plants as both healers and poisoners, bringers of blessing and bane. The poison plants of old have always been powerful allies and guides in the work of the witch, seer, mystic and healer, offering wisdom about honoring boundaries and fear, the birth-death-rebirth cycle of life, the ways of the spirit world, and more.
This will be a three-part series with the first class meeting on Friday September 21st from 7-9pm, the second on Friday October 5th from 7-9pm, and the third on November 9th from 7-9pm. Time will be spent doing a trance with at least one plant per class, and will also be spent in discussion and lecture. Direct interaction with the spirits of the plants is one of the best ways to build relationship with poisonous plants in particular, and this will be our focus for the evening. We will cover:
- The history of the witch’s relationship to poisonous plants of the temperate regions
- The rich folklore of baneful plants and their role in mythic consciousness
- How to safely interact with and prepare medicines, amulets, and more from these herbs
- Tending relationship through gardening and practical advice on cultivation
Cost is $30, though no one turned away for lack of funds. Please bring a journal, and an offering for the altar.
