+There is an option of weekly drop-in for $45. This covers the herb tincture as well. This option is only available for YYJ folx so that they may get their herbs on time.
REGISTRATION: Please follow this link to register. Registration by January 25 for Canada wide so I can mail out herbs accordingly and they make it on time.
WHAT: Each week we will focus on a plant growing abundantly in the Pacific Northwest of Canada and go through a drum journey, guided meditation, Ada’s personal uses, how to use, plant attributes (including astrological), and growing conditions. This is a really great opportunity to connect to wild plants often overlooked by traditional Western herbalists, awaken your inner intuitive gifts, and communicate with other consciousness in a safe space.
