Plant Meditations with Bridget's Apothecary

May 1st, 2018 6:30pm - 7:30pm

(Mostly) First Tuesdays of the Month~~May-October

This is a monthly donation-based class where we come together and explore a single plant. We will gather as a group at the start time and pass around some of the herb to be explored. This might be in tincture form, or a tea, or perhaps some of the raw, fresh or dried herb. After receiving a portion of the herb, you are invited to find a spot for yourself in the garden and take 20 or 30 minutes to notice the effects of ingesting the herb. Perhaps you feel moved to walk the entire time, perhaps to lay down, perhaps you feel energy moving in the body, or a certain part of you feels stimulated or relaxed. Maybe a faraway memory comes back to you, or you keep thinking of a specific person. When we come back together all are welcome to share with the group what they experienced. One way to participate in this, is to do so “blind”, that is, without knowing what herb you are receiving so as to remove any preconceived notions you have about the plant or its healing. Knowing what plant we are meditating with at each gathering will always be an option, but I ask that if you choose to know, that you not share what the plant is, so that others may experience their meditation without that label if they wish.

No Pre-registration required. Donations welcomed.
