Learning from our other ancestors
The Earth offers many forms of nourishment, wisdom, and healing. Some are meant to be loud, offer contrast from our reality, or immense emotional warmth; these are often medicines to be consumed under the guidance of an elder or other seasoned wisdom keeper. Other plants offer much softer, nuanced, and subtle energies which also are highly medicinal. The latter can be consumed regularly and even many times a day. These plants are often more common, and nature intended them to be common so that we can access them more easily. This is the paradox – what’s often most instructive to our consciousness is not necessarily ‘exotic’, but is under our noses (pun intended) or in our backyards.
Join Mimi Young, shamanic intuitive and plant spirit educator of Ceremonie, for a 4-hour intensive pre-recorded course that includes in-depth and hands-on learning from non-entheogenic (non-psychedelic) plants and their spirits that are still immensely powerful in our daily and esoteric practises. You will renew your connection with plants, heighten your intuitive abilities to communicate with plants, and be transformed by their potency and wisdom.
