IN BLOOM: A FLOWER ESSENCE WORKSHOP on the MENDOCINO COAST

Saturday, May 20th & Sunday, May 21st at various locations in Mendocino, CA

This weekend of flower magic is devoted to learning how to make potent flower essences. Flower essences are energetic remedies used in herbal practice and self-care for supporting vibrational shifts in the soul and spirit. They are accessible and simple while being powerful and an incredible creative practice. In this two day workshop, we will visit incredible locations around the spectacular Mendocino Coast and forests to find flowers that we wish to make medicine with. We will enter into ceremony and work mainly with flower essences but will also cover gem essences, animal essences and environmental essences. Because this class is a sleepover, you will also learn some great dream work techniques for working with your flower essences and discovering how they might assist you in healing. Students will ground into the work through honoring the medicine of place here on the Mendocino Coast. 

Each student will leave with a few flower essences that they have made themselves, as well as opportunities to trade with other class participants.
