Greetings Plant Lovers,
With the snow swirling and swirling out the kitchen door; here I sit all cozy in the fire’s glow — pondering my passionate work with plants and wondering where your work will take you?
Tuesday January 28th, 7 – 9 pm will be our next The Ginkgo Tree Herbal Class. We will be meeting here at The Ginkgo Tree, on our family farm. We have a great night planned! As always guests are welcome for a fee of $25.00 (depending on space and pre-registering). Please note: herb course is the last Tuesday of every month (no class in December due to holidays).
We will open classes with a ceremonial blessing of our teachers and students. The ritual of smudging can be defined as “spiritual house cleaning.” Thanks to our friend from the Chippewa’s of Georgina, Laurie Hoeg, who will perform the ceremony. We will also have our “Tea of the Month” taught this month by Tracey Winterton. Tracey will provide plant materia medica and a sample cup of the tea. Its so fun to try and experience new teas!
We are like the flowers in the meadow
We each take different shapes and forms
We grow and evolve
We are like the blossoms
We bloom and then wilt
We rest and go dormant, a natural stage of life
We are like the seeds on the wind
We are blown and lifted up up up
We are scattered in all directions, not knowing where we will land
We are like a sprout in the warm moist earth
How will you choose to grow?
This month’s class (January 28th)
Setting Our Intentions for 2020
Lets Get Inspired by Aku Dunyo Richter
We are so excited to have Aku speak and inspire us on her personal relationship with herbs!
Together, we will all set some clear intentions on our herbal journey, supporting and uplifting one another. We will learn to listen to our intuition ~ our body and soul knows what it needs. We will spend some time with our teas and tinctures ~ Is one speaking to you? Everyone will go home with a sample of the plant that you felt a yearning for intuitively.
Please RSVP, looking forward to seeing you all soon!
