About this Course
From midsummer to midwinter, many cultures and spiritual traditions celebrate and honor their ancestors. Some believe that the veil between the human world and the spirit world weakens as the darkness of winter descends. Plants and herbs are often used to open the senses and inspire visions and lucid dreaming. Many of these same plants provide resilience in the dark days of winter.
Join herbalist Leah Wolfe on this seven-week journey to learn more about the plants of transcendence, the plants of visionaries, and the herbs for the thinning veils. Each lesson will include an in-depth discussion of the herb’s spiritual and medicinal uses, harvesting methods, recipes and activities and techniques to increase your intuition using plant energy.
