The veil is thin and the Ancestors are close during the mystical season of Samhain. The priests and priestesses of the ancient Celtic lineage, the Druids, lived seasonally with the Earth and so too may we. We will journey with Celtic/ Irish goddesses the Morrigan and the Cailleach and their specific powers for the winter season of Samhain. We will discover herbs to nourish the physical and spiritual body during this time of nesting and resting, dreaming and stillness. We will learn how to dress a candle blessed with a spell for the season, connect to elderberry and learn how to make a deep dark syrup for the immune system. We will discover herbs to create a tea to nourish and quiet the body and the mind, to connect us to and celebrate the dark. Two full scholarships available for this class for BIPOC, please email email@example.com. $25.
