Take a Plant Journey at Tulsi Medicine Experiential Workshop

Spend an afternoon in the radiant Tulsi Rose Garden, in Shelburne Falls, with Hannah Jacobson-Hardy and Sulis from 2 to 5 p.m., August 19, to learn about the medicine of tulsi and rose. In this experiential workshop, participants will get to know tulsi through all of their senses; they will taste, touch, feel and experience it vibrationally through drumming and communing with the facilitators and others in the garden.

Workshop attendees will sip teas, sample extracts and honeys, and smell the fresh plants growing in the garden while asking the spirits of each herb what kind of teachings they have for us. There will also be handouts, recipes, hands-on demonstrations and each participant will leave with herbal medicines to take for their home apothecary.

“When we slow down and listen deeply, the sacred teachings of plants can be heard. This is how herbalists and medicine people discovered many ways to communicate about the uses of herbs for thousands of years,” says Jacobson-Hardy.

This plant spirit journey is open to all with no prior experience necessary. Pre-registration required.

Cost: Sliding scale $35-$45. Location: 19 Depot Rd., Shelburne Falls. Learn more at tab=about.
