Part initiation into deeper relationship with plants and their mystery, part introduction to the plants that gave us the Meldings; this day is for you if you are intrigued about plants and healing and would like to learn more.

Expect meditation, shamanic style connection with plants, herbal knowledge and plant history. There will be oportunities to try Meldings, practice selecting them for self care and for spiritual practices as well as lots of opportunity to discuss your experiences and to share with others. Sarah and I teach from a place of deep respect for the Earth, a love of stories and all things mystical with a healthy irreverance for anything too serious!

Find out which Melding plant is most like you and take a little time to focus on what you want for yourself.  You will  select three Meldings to take away with you as part of the course price. 


A perfect blend of plant lore, herbal wisdom and shamanic practices. 

With Sarah Atkinson, Medical Herbalist
