A Druid Herbal for Lughnasa
August 19 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm$45.00
The priests and priestesses of the ancient Celtic lineage, the
Druids, lived seasonally with the Earth, creating magic with Nature and the Elements. We will journey
with Celtic/ Irish goddesses Brighid and Maeve and their specific powers for the autumnal season of
Lughnasa. We will discover herbs to nourish the physical and spiritual body during this time, create a
moon ritual + seasonal spellcraft and tree connection. You will leave with a Lughnasa herbal tea blend
and an ancient hazel nut potion.
