Introduction to Botanica Magica
Thursday, Jan 24, 2019
6:30pm – 9:00pm
Spiral through the Elements of Air, Fire, Water and Earth and the magical powers and blessings associated with each. Ally with herbs as alchemical thresholds to the liminal and learn how to create herbal incense and spell bundles, lunar infused oils, ritual baths and teas, and herbal charm jars. We will call in Irish goddesses Sheela na gig, Brighid, the Morrigan and the Cailleach to co-create with us as we find the beauty and power in remembering our magic. You will leave with two magical herbal potions made in ritual. This is a condensed class of a 4 week series called Botanica Magica which will be on offer next quarter.
