Plants and Dream Lore

Join a small group of people this springtime for a class that focuses on plants and night
dreaming. Dreams have ways of informing not only personal magical practice, but also life and its processes. Certain plants have been used historically for dream divination and to enhance dream life in general. Creating a class that inspires folks to look to their dreams for
understanding with an added plant component will give space for the nuance and numen that comes through the dreaming veil.
Each week we will focus on a different plant and practice. A small amount of plant material will be provided for you for the week, to work with on a few of the nights. The plants are chosen based on their history; some were known to help with dreams, others for assisting with clairvoyance or spirit congress in general. Results will be discussed in an intimate setting, ideas
and inspirations will abound. This is a great opportunity for those who want to strengthen their dreaming practices, as well as utilize and learn about certain plants for additional assistance in the dream realm.

Schedule: Week One: Mugwort Anointing Salve, Week Two: Yarrow Elixir, Week Three: English Ivy Fresh Leaves in Muslin, Week Four: Rose Dried Flowers for Foot Bath, Week Five: Wormwood Fumigation on Charcoal, Week Six: Linden Dried Flower for Tea, Week Seven: Elder Infused Wine, Week Eight: Poppy Hanging Charm
