Location: WytchWood, 5 Edmonton Terrace, East Kilbride G75 8AS - Map link
On arriving, you enter through the Garden Of The Goddess, a woodland themed garden honouring the Goddess and The Fae.
What To Bring
You need only bring yourself, your love and respect for plants, a curiosity for communing closer with them and an open heart.
If you would like, the following can be helpful:
A bottle of water (this is useful when we work shamanically in circle). Water will be available.
A notebook and pen (if you would like to jot down some notes)
Outdoor clothing (the weather can be unpredictable and we will be exploring the Medicine Wheel garden outdoors. If the weather is prohibitive, we’ll be working more indoors!)
Shoes that are easy to slip on and off - we'll be going between the gardens and indoors and it's easier to have footwear that you can put on and pull off easily.
As WytchWood is in a residential area, on street parking may be limited. If you are attending with a friend, it is a good idea to car share. If you are unable to park on the street, free parking is available a short walk away at Tesco Metro in the Westwood Square.
If coming from Glasgow, the no.6 bus will drop you around 2 minutes walk from WytchWood; bus no.18 stop is around 5 minutes walk away. If coming from Lanarkshire, bus no.201 will drop you 2 minutes walk away. Train stations are a little further away, around a 20 minute walk from either East Kilbride or Hairmyres. At Hairmyres, the bus no.201 departs from Hairmyres Hospital grounds.
Guidance & Ground Rules
You are invited to experience the garden in your own meditative and sensory way and free to touch and smell the plants within the garden. Please however do not pick or taste the plants - not all plants that are grown at WytchWood are suitable for internal use or consumption.
We will be tasting some of the herbs from the garden - if you have any existing conditions that require medication management please check if there are any herbs that are contraindicated with your prescription medication by consulting your GP/other medical professional and medical herbalist. If you have any sensitivities or allergies regarding herbal teas, flowers or pollen this workshop is unlikely to be suitable - please do consult your GP, a medical professional or other qualified professional/herbalist if you have any concerns and before booking the workshop.
WytchWood is a working garden based my healing practice and place of work, but it is also mine and my family’s home. You are ofcourse free to use the toilet facilities when required, but it is not an ‘open house’. We welcome respectful visitors but please be aware that it is a private home and garden in a residential area.
As such, WytchWood house and gardens have neighbours on both sides and to the bottom back of the garden. They are ofcourse free to enjoy their gardens too and we conduct the workshops with minimal intrusion with this in mind. Their enjoyment of their garden may coincide with the times of the workshops and while it is generally a quiet and peaceful space, there may be some noise.
This also works the other way too. My work is sacred and shared only with those who understand its sacredness. This means that the full extent of my work is not generally known. While I am sure it is clear to neighbours that there are 'witchy goings on', sacredness is a very important aspect of working with energy and Spirit, and this is a crucial understanding for any apprentice or practitioner. In these workshops I share some of the sacredness with you and I ask that if there are any questions pertaining to the medicine of the plants and their esoteric uses, or craft in general, that these are discussed indoors during the tea ceremony.
As we work indoors, we will be sharing the space with my animal family, currently three cats. They are incredibly friendly - Luna in particular enjoys visitors. If you have an allergy to cats please do let me know as soon as possible as you will be unable to attend the workshop.
My cats are indoor only cats - this means that all doors open to the gardens need to be closed as soon as they are opened. I will ensure this but it is important to inform you of this to be mindful.
Please be respectful of the space, gardens and all of their inhabitants. WytchWood is tended with love.
I thank you in advance for your respecting of these guidelines. I look forward to sharing the magic, spirit and plant medicine of WytchWood with you!
