Curse & Thought-Form Unraveling:
Practitioner Training & Initiation


With Ylva Mara Radziszewski

Date: Saturday, September 29th - Sunday, September 30th | 10am - 6pm

Cost: $325 (Sliding Scale Available)

About the Course
Within many cultures and spiritual cosmologies there are beliefs, stories and customs around curses and disruptive spiritual bindings; their origin and their cure. In this course we will explore the nature of these disruptive and potentially limiting bindings with a focus on learning safe methods of unraveling and clearing their energy and impact. Cures can present in a number of ways such as: limiting, repetitive or obsessive thoughts and/or patterns, chronic illness, bad luck or feelings of being overshadowed or under attack. They may originate in as many ways as their symptoms manifest. Curses may have been intentionally or unintentionally cast, inherited from last life or ancestral events, through personal or cultural beliefs, or from past oaths and vows to name a few.

 

Some objectives will cover in this course:

- Methods of identifying and tracking potential curses, thought-forms and bindings

- Safe and effective ways of interfacing the energy of potent disruptive spiritual bindings

- Clearing the field of a curse from places, objects and circumstances

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.

Invasive Plant Medicine | 9.14.18 | 7pm-9pm
Examining the layers of belief we hold about invasive plants is an interesting and transformative process, one that can shine a light into biases that we didn't even know we were holding, and hopefully bring about a more balanced way of being in relationship with the living world. Many if not all invasive plants are medicinal in some capacity, and present in abundance in rural and urban areas. We will talk in depth about a number of Washington's "invasive" plants and how to use them for food, medicine, and as guides for how to live well in changing times.

A Witch's Herbal, Part 1 | 9.21.18 | 7pm-9pm
Part of walking the path of the witch involves forming relationships with plants as both healers and poisoners, bringers of blessing and bane. The poison plants of old have always been powerful allies and guides in the work of the witch, seer, mystic and healer, offering wisdom about honoring boundaries and fear, the birth-death-rebirth cycle of life, the ways of the spirit world, and more. Time in class will be spent in discussion and lecture. Direct interaction with the spirits of the plants is one of the best ways to build relationship with poisonous plants in particular, and this will be our focus or the evening. Please bring a journal and an offering for the altar. This is a two-part series with part two taking place on Friday, October 5th. Registration: $30 per class, although no one turned away for lack of funds.  RSVP via blackspruceherbals@gmail.com and register here.
