Reciprocity in Relationship with Plant Kin

with Melissa Rose Schaefer Building true Gaian reciprocity with our plant kin means first shifting from extractive or distracted paradigms of plant medicine to one of deeper spiritual relationship. We are invited to listen deeply to the voices of the plant realm in order to understand how we may tend reciprocity with these beings, and the whole of the natural world, in both spiritual and practical ways. The deeper relationships forged through reciprocity offer us an opportunity to receive the fullness of the healing, wisdom and magic that the plants have to offer.   In this workshop we ...

Mindfulness in Microdosing

Eostar Kamala After the popular weekly Microdosing FAQ Zoom Calls and 6-week Mindfulness in Microdosing Courses that Eostar has been leading, she will talk about her experience in microdosing psychedelics in an intentional and conscious container. Based on her interviews with clients, Eostar found that many people who try microdosing on their own, don’t get much of a result because they do not persevere staying on a protocol over at least a few months period of time. They also often lack guidance or an intentional container.  “Mindfulness in Microdosing” is an answer to a growing demand ...

Re-membering a Unified Herbalism

w/ Morgan Brent The herbalism we know as a pleasantly quaint country craft, or lately, a more benign form of pharmacy, is far removed from its more perennial form, which runs the pulse of Gaian consciousness, and acts in accord with Nature's corrective influence in the human sphere.  This is largely due to the war on Nature which has been waged in its various forms over the centuries, most recently as the ‘war on drugs'.   As the rebalancing forces of Creation ease us into a ‘psychedelic renaissance’, we have opportunities to explore and co-create a ...

Communication with Plants, Animals, and Nature Beings

Ingrid Larson  Communication with plants, animals, and Earth is an innate ability that we all have. Do you have a special connection to a place that you would like to connect even more deeply with? Would you like to have a conversation with your pets, wildlife you’ve encountered, or other nature beings? Animals, nature beings, mountains, bodies of water, and Earth can all be excellent guides and teachers. Connecting with these beings is one of my greatest joys, and anyone can experience this. In this workshop people can ask questions of any being of nature and I’ll relay what they want ...

Offerings to Creator ~ a hands on approach to incense crafting

Cultivating Mediumship with Sacred Plant Medicines

Todji Kurtzman and Michelle Hawk Mediumship is the practice of communicating directly with spirits, or spirits working directly through us, and is the foundational practice of all Shamanic traditions around the world. Mediumship is an essential part of working with plant medicines, as it allows us to cultivate direct, personal relationships with the plant spirits. Nature spirits communicate by transmission through our primal consciousness. We can cultivate our mediumship practice with or without the help of sacred plant medicines, but it is very common for people to receive mediumship ...
