Rooted in the Heart, Seeded in the Soul is a two-day workshop that we prefer to teach at Dragon Waters or any other location with access to extensive gardens. It does require knowledge of shamanic journeying.

We are so fond of plant spirit work, and it is so essential to our work with herbs, that we teach this almost every year at Dragon Waters. See also our book on plant spirit journeywork, Rooted in the Heart, Seeded in the Soul.

Many tribal shamans are masters of herbal healing and work deeply with the healing energy of plants. When asked where their knowledge comes from, they tend to say, "The plants told us how to use them for healing."  Even those shamans who are not herbalists traditionally use plants and plant energies in their work, as costume, as "decoration," in many kinds of purification, and sometimes as aids to the journeying process.

We believe that you will be much more effective in your shamanic practice if you have an active relationship with plant spirits.

In this workshop, you learn about traditional plants of power and the plants most important to your growth. It is our usual blend of lecture, discussion, journeywork, practical work and ceremony that will take you to the lands of Spirit, the herb gardens and the herbalist's kitchen so you may experience plant energies on many levels.

Advance registration is required to attend all Church of Earth Healing classes and workshops. See the Schedule  for when and where Rooted in the Heart will next be offered.
