  • Awakening Your Natural Capacity to Speak with the Spirits of Plants

    Plants are fully aware beings that have intelligence and spirit as well as a great deal of wisdom that they are willing to share with us, we need only learn how to hear them.
    In this workshop, participants will learn how to not only speak to plants but to speak with them through an easy and effective method called ‘dream journeying’. Dream journeying is a two-stage process of getting to know the nature of a plant and then dreaming in an intentional way while still awake to meet and commune with their spirit.
    This way of dream learning from plants is available to everybody. You do not need years of specialized training to awaken this gift inherent within you. By dream journeying to the plant people, you will develop an intimate, two-way relationship with them and learn directly from them of their wisdom, blessings, messages and medicines.
