January 6, 2018 all-day

Since the beginning of time humanity has turned to the plants and the natural world for guidance and healing. Our ancestors knew from experience that the natural world was wise, and that the plants offered special doorways to its wisdom. This knowledge is as important for our people today as it was for our ancestors. Today we know that plants are generous and kind beings who want to help us and share with us.

In this one-day workshop, Eliot Cowan will introduce you to the wisdom of the plants. Through stories and hands-on experience with the plants, Eliot will guide you to their world where you can begin to learn how to feel, hear, and know the teachings of the plants and what they have to offer us.
