About the Course
Spell Crafting is a Witches most intimate tool in the craft. Spells are as varied as the witch and as complex as any one of our personal relationships. The effectiveness of a witch's spell depends on the witch's:

- Clarity of intent and their ability to release the outcome of the spell
- Understanding and respect of the elements involved in the spell
- Quality of their relationship with the spirits

Plantae Magicae:
Deep Study of The Green World


A Once Monthly Drop-in Salon With Emma Day & Ren Carothers

One Wednesday A Month, 7:00-9:00pm
Jan 24th, Feb 21st, Mar 21st, Apr 18th, May 16th, June 13th,
July 25th, Aug 22nd, Sept 19th, Oct. 17th, Nov 14th 
Cost: $20-$35 Sliding Scale Per Class

About the Course
In a modern world so removed from the wild green how do we, as plant-loving devotees, get back in touch with the language of the botanical? We believe a deeper level communication with flora can be forged through meditation, intention, sensory & emotional impressions. This is a class for those interested in engaging with the subtle vibrations of the plant world. Put simply, we believe that you can learn a lot about a plant and its medicine by sitting with it! Let’s get together with some plant friends and see what sensory and emotional impressions of their wisdom arise for us.

After these plant sits, there will be opportunities to share your experience and discuss with the collective. There will also be teachings about the featured plants from the perspective of western herbalism and European folk traditions and magical practices.

This offering will meet Wednesday nights once monthly January through November, featuring different plants each month. You are welcome to drop-in and out of the series at any time.

No prior experience of any kind is necessary to enjoy this work, only an admiration of plants! This is a simple exercise of tuning in to your extrasensory perceptions, which will be reviewed and discussed at each meet up. Although this concept may feel daunting to new-comers, it is a straightforward meditative process that can be honed merely with practice.

Registration: Preregistration is not necessary (drop-ins are welcome), but appreciated so that we can get a headcount of materials needed. Cost is $20-$35 sliding scale as you are able to afford. RSVP via blackspruceherbals@gmail.com.
