It’s almost here! Our six day long herbal/healing extravaganza will be here in no time at all, from August 1st through 6th. While I love all of our events I have to say that these longer gatherings really allow for the group to get to know each other deeply and intensely and also facilitate much more in depth workshops that would otherwise be possible. And this one is really my baby too, bringing so much of what I love together to be shared with other women from across the country.
For the first time ever, I’ll be teaching a workshop specifically on the application of the Animá Medicine Wheel to herbal and healing energetics, the basis of the Medicine Woman Tradition’s approach to dynamic, constitutionally based and wildly weedy medicine. There will also be the obligatory long and rambling herb walk along with delicious wild food feasts, plant gathering and many other exciting workshops.
This is one of the most lush and beautiful times of the year in the Gila, when the plants and river are just overflowing in their bounty. We’ve been having warm days with coolish evenings thanks to the annual rains. August is a gorgeous time for swimming in the river, walking through head high wildflowers and tasting all the delicious wild treats.
I have carpooling opportunities from Albuquerque, Tucson and Boulder happening so please let me know if I can hook you up with a ride. As always, this event is on a by donation basis, so please don’t use lack of funds as a reason for not coming if you feel really called to attend.
While this is a women only event, exceptions for small children or young women will be made on a case by case basis.
A special thanks to ALL you beautiful plant people who have helped spread the word about events and opportunities. Special thanks to Darcey and Ananda for encouraging others to come to the Medicine Woman Gathering!
