About the Event
In these online gatherings, we request the wisdom of the plant kingdom and discover how we can work with them to support us in our self healing. We explore their physical properties, folklore, traditional and ritual uses and, as we shamanic journey together, we ask for their guidance and spiritual teachings.
In this get together, we welcome the spirit medicine of Sunflower. As we move from Autumn to Winter and the daylight hours become shorter, the Sunflower growing and flowering period may be all but over, we can still connect with its optimistic and sunny medicine when we need it. If you are able, please have a small dish of sunflower seeds with you - if not, please do not worry, they are not essential.
Plant Medicine events are every 2 weeks and at each one we work with a different member or aspect of the plant kingdom to connect, discover and honour their own individual medicine. The plant we will be working with may sometimes be in the title of the event and at other times we may be guided on the night!
How To Attend
You can secure your place by booking online. It is a closed online meeting where we (currently) connect through Zoom, an online webinar platform. You can participate either with or without video, on a laptop, smartphone, chromebook or tablet.
On securing your place, the online link and passcode for you to access the circle for the date you have booked will be in both the email that is sent with your ticket and in the reminder email sent before the event - each circle will have a different online link and passcode.
If you have a ceremonial rattle or drum or a plant, cutting or seeds of the plant for the circle, please feel free to bring these to the circle to use in our journeying. If not, please do not worry as I will drum and guide us for our journeying and, as we are connecting with the spirit medicine, a physical represenation of the plant does not need to be present with you. You do not need experience of shamanic journeying to join this circle.
Plant Medicine is held every 2 weeks - if you would like to secure your place for upcoming circles or regular participation, future dates are on the Plant Medicine Circle events page. You can also secure your place at future circles by booking several dates in advance here - each Zoom meeting link will be sent to you.
Late Arrival / Non-Attendance
The circle begins prompt at 7pm and will be a closed space at 7.10pm - arrivals after this time will be unable to join.
The fee is non refundable and non transferrable for late arrival and/or non-attendance. Please get in touch if you are unable to attend.
Creating Your Sacred Space
To prepare for the session, find a quiet place where you will not be disturbed and which feels comfortable and warm. You may wish to have a plant or flowers present in your space during the circle. Depending on the plant we are working with at each circle, it may also be useful to have a little of the plant or to source a picture of the plant to reference but this is not required to participate.
It is often useful to have a pen and paper to hand to write down any experiences you may have during the shamanic journeying time of the webinar and a blanket handy for during or after the shamanic journeying.
After The Circle
Be sure to drink plenty of water afterwards. If you feel a little light headed, eating a light snack can help, as is resting if you need to.
