Humans have a long and deep connection with the plant world. We have been foraging for our foods and roots, picking stalks of medicinal leaves, gathering berries, and making our tools and shelter from wood, trees, and shrubs. In earlier times, every human would have had some plant allies, friends, enemies, or even strangers in the flora in their area of the Earth. They would cooperate with plants to gain powers and knowledge, to heal and to kill, and to grow food for men and animals.
Elie walks us through 40 plants from her gardens and neighborhood. She will discuss the planetary attribution of herbs and help us understand how to choose herbs and work with them as friends to our magics. This class will focus on the specific magical qualities and uses of herbs. The handout is included as a download PDF.
