About the Workshops:
Laya’s two hour herbal workshops are inspired by the indigenous practices of plant spirit communication. The belief and understanding that each plant has a spirit and understanding how to access information from plants by calling in their spirit for guidance. This involves meditating with each plant, the practice of listening, experiencing the plants medicine with teas and tinctures as well as plant material.
We will dive into the plant’s physical medicine and also explore different herbal preparations.
After having experienced these workshops, you will have developed a good understanding of how to communicate with the plant, the healing medicine that it offers, how to prepare herbal medicines, measuring safe dosages,
