Plant Spirit Healing with Liddy Flewwelling, N.H.C.

Plant Spirit Healing with Liddy Flewwelling, N.H.C.

 

Plants are the most successful organisms on the planet and they have the unique ability to create food, oxygen and tissue from sunlight. The latest scientific research shows that they are intelligent beings who have the capacity to store enormous amounts of information while being highly efficient in communicating and making decisions. Indigenous healers have known this about plants for centuries and have recognized that it is actually the spirit of the plant that does the communicating and healing. In this lecture we will explore how to communicate with the spirit of a plant. Through entering the daydream of the plant and through a traditional dream journey we are able to connect with the spirit of a plant and learn how it can help us in our lives, from making decisions, to healing long standing issues, to bringing a greater sense of well-being.

Join us as we learn how to align with the plants and listen deeply.

 Liddy has worked as a healer and teacher in holistic medicine in Montreal for over thirty years. After studying with Eliot Cowan, author of ‘Plant Spirit Medicine’ nearly 20 years ago, she began working primarily with the spiritual dimension of plants. She has also completed studies with Pam Montgomery, author of ‘Plant Spirit Healing’. The plants however continue to be her greatest teachers!

Liddy has created a beautiful deck of Plant Spirit Healing cards called ‘Messages from the Plant World’. This deck can be used as a daily source of inspiration as well as to determine which plants we can use to heal at a body, mind and spirit level.

Liddy currently works with and offers classes in Plant Spirit Healing. She also guides Vision Quests, Sweat Lodges and other shamanic ceremonies. Consult her website at www.liddyflewwelling.com for more information on her classes and offerings..

Mushroom Walk - Keith Williams & Basma Kavanagh

Mushroom Walk - Keith Williams & Basma Kavanagh

Mushroom biodiversity echoes through the multiple roles mushrooms play: landscape architects, poisoners, food/providers, healers, jesters, clothiers, psychopomps, neural-networks-of-the-world. This immersive workshop will be limited to 15 participants but will be repeated a few times throughout the day and will focus on ways of seeing and ways of being…ideas of mushroom/human relationships that have emerged from our reflections on twenty-plus years of mushrooming in Nova Scotia and beyond.

Keith Williams, like the mysterious mushroom, is many things. Trained as a mycologist, he has worked in the fields of education, agriculture, ethnobotany, and community development and has enjoyed living, eating, and mushrooming across Canada and overseas. He is currently inspired to the point of obsession by gardening.

Basma is a poet and artist with a life-long interest in plants and fungi.
