Plant Spirit Medicine: Healing with the Plant People and the Standing People in Shamanism
In six parts, although the weekends can also be taken individually.
Dates: Ran in 2016. Will be offered again at some point
Working with the Plant People and the Standing People (the Trees) is a huge part of shamanic healing. Over these weekends we will be working to meet and develop a close working relationship with several Plant and Standing Spirits, learning their healing medicine and wisdom. We will explore the difference between working with an individual plant, and working with the oversoul of a plant species. We will experience some different shamanic ways of tuning in to plants and their medicines, including ‘groking’, shapeshifting and ‘dieting’. We will practice some of the different ways plants may be worked with, including ingesting, smoking, topical applications, burial, shapeshifting, and working directly with the plant spirit.
As well as exploring some specific plants and their uses, each weekend will also be centred around a theme. The themes will be…
“Learning about plants is fundamental to Shamanism and I would wholeheartedly recommend anybody who is committed to learning more about this path to attend these courses. I came away from these weekends in awe at the vastness of healing possibilities that are at our finger-tips, given freely by Plant Spirit. The Earth really is abundant in the amazing, sentient gifts that she offers us through plants, flowers and trees. Paul’s knowledge in this area, is astounding. I came away from these courses feeling nourished with healing, wisdom and experience. A great way to reconnect yourself to the magic of the natural world.” L.M., Cumbria.
