One of my missions in life is to spread the word about the wisdom and healing power of plants. I want everyone to know how beneficial plants are when we are feeling unwell or out of sorts; if we have the ‘flu or we are feeling anxious. There is a plant remedy for every ailment and upset.
As 80% of humanity uses plant medicine as their primary source of health care and as more Westerners return to herbal medicine, the healing power of plants is well known. Not so many people know about the wisdom of plants. Few know how the plants can be our allies in life and how they help us to connect on a deeply spiritual level with the Goddess, our Mother.
The plants were Her first children and as our elders they are ready to bring us on a magical journey to remind us that we too are part of nature.
So, back to my mission….to share other aspects of plant healing. I now feel that it is time for me to offer a course of Wise Woman training.
“Plant Wisdom and The Goddess – Wise Woman Training”
is a one year course from Samhain to Samhain during which time we will travel the Celtic Wheel of the Year meeting with our plant allies and with the Goddess in her various forms. We will celebrate the eight fire festivals, weaving myth and reality in this world and in other worlds, rekindling a love for and a relationship with our land and with the Earth.
We will recall our Celtic heritage through folklore, story and music, remembering how our ancestors respected the Goddess and we will come to understand that everything is alive and filled with spirit. We will spend time in Nature here in Connemara, walking the land, wandering the sea shore and observing the plants. The land in Connemara is imbued with an unseen presence that can be felt when walking with gratitude for the Beauty of Nature.
We will craft our various magical tools, (beginning with our Crane Bag), at each of the fire festivals and you will learn how to journey with the Drum and with Dance. We will practise ritual and ceremony and you will learn how to make an altar, how to work with gifts from Nature as you prepare for a Vision Quest that will take place at the end of the course.
At every step, the plants will be with us, forging our reconnection to Mother Earth. As we journey with the plants to the Goddess we will undergo personal transformation, remembering that Love is all there is.
