Full Moon Plant Magic

Join us for an evening of medicine and plant magic in the Northeast Queendom led by Marielle Fisher, local herbalist and plant medicine person. 

Basking in the lingering rays of the full moon, let's call to our green elders.  We'll treat our bodies to deep relaxation, supported by, and in connection with, the plants. What wisdom do they have to share at this potent thyme?

Hand and rainbow flowers.jpg

You'll be invited to use herbal infused oils for self massage before we journey in with a plant ally. Listening deeply, we will learn from the plants themselves. With a rainbow of local herbs to chose from, we'll have the opportunity to invite plant spirits deeper in to areas of our bodies needing extra support as well. May we gather and remember how plants help us fully embody our own magic. 

Please bring a journal, and an item to add to the evenings altar.
Sliding scale donation of $15-30
Space limited so please register to hold your spot.

This gathering is full, if an opening occurs we will reopen registration.

Dreamwork & Visions with Diana

Dreamwork & Visions with Diana

Dreamtime is a place full of wonder, beauty and curiosity within the delicate strands in the weaving of spirit and interconnectedness. Join me in covering the basic understanding of dreamwork through to the communication, visitations, and visions in dreams.

Visions can be when you pick up on left energy that still remains in a space or in a persons energetic field. A vision can also be what some call "daydreaming" when in fact some of these day dreams are visions assisting you with current situations and/or foresight for what is to come.

This workshop is a safe, mystical, and creative time for us to delve deep into the meaning of our dreams and how to practice deepening your own dreamwork.

We will discuss levels/stages of sleep, the basic science of dreaming, what can influence your dreams in your daily life, your intuitive dreams and seeing the difference between subconscious conversation and foresight. Visitors from the spirit world, visitors from the living world, communication through dreams, and our deep connection to each other in the realm of dream time. Also how we can deepen our sleep with mediations, relaxing music, crystals and other methods.

You will leave this course with some newfound methods to practice deepening your dreamwork and how to deconstruct the meaning of your dreams along with many resources to support further understanding of dreamwork. A journal and coloring tools will be provided, bring what you might like to add.

Suggested donation $25 per person. Each attendee will receive a printed booklet to take home with all course materials enclosed.

Creating Invisible Boundaries

This workshop is geared towards healers, bodyworkers, intuitives and highly sensitive folks. The kind of people who can feel the subtle energies of others as well as shifts in the collective. People who feel emotional waves that don't always make sense and even physical pain - dreamers who dream lucidly about happenings near or far and folks who need a multitude of tools at all times just to feel safe and at ease. 

Is it a struggle for you to just go grocery shopping or gather in a larger group of friends or attend events? Afterwords do you feel completely drained and need a few days to recharge? It is important to understand that the Highly Sensitive Person is a reality and a struggle. Most folks do not realize that they are suffering from this very thing and others are not aware that their partners, children or friends are suffering with this as well. Dr. Elaine N. Aron, Ph.D coined the term The Highly Sensitive Person in her national best selling book published in 1996.

Together in an open, safe and supportive discussion we will talk about all of these issues and why they may occur, methods for adults and children, the shamanic and/or spiritual history behind this type of struggle and practices to support you - we will go over a list of tools for daily practice such as herbs, smoke medicines, minerals, visualizations, flower essences, meditations, quick and easy daily practices and a list of amazing resources for further information and support.

Refreshments will be served. Suggested donation $30 - includes a pink yarrow flower essence to take home.

Japanese Shinrinyoku or Forest Bathing

With Rebecca Beidler from Peace of Earth Farm

The Japanese concept of Shinrinyoku or Forest Bathing promotes the health benefits of spending time in nature (especially a forested setting) just being present, slowing down, and observing natural surroundings with all of our senses.

Rebecca will guide us on a forest walk involving slow, quiet walking with the invitation to focus on a particular sense or activity (for example- notice what is moving, observe the light and darkness, spend time touching trees/moss/water...). After each invitation the group will come together and share observations before moving onto a new sense. This guided walk ends by sharing a cup of tea made from some representative plants from the area. 

Additional refreshments will be served in the Yurt. Please dress appropriate for weather conditions.

Cost for this workshop is $10 per person.

Sacred Medicine Bag Making with Diana

Sacred Medicine Bag Making with Diana

The workshop will cover everything from the basic history of medicine bags, the intuitive process while making them, adorning and placing sacred objects within the bag and the healing properties that reveal themselves. 

We will discuss intuition and how to widen your own for healing purposes, how stones communicate, and how the spiritual, vibrational, and emotional healing you are needing becomes available to you as you work with your wider self. We will touch upon how we can empower others when we open our hearts to our own healing work and begin sharing this with compassion as well as the shamanic channeling that comes through in my process making these bags. 

At a very early age, I began learning sacred Native American traditions and have continued to honor this all my life. I researched immensely into Native American culture while achieving my masters degree and found that my draw to the culture had a connection to my heart and soul. After receiving permission from a member of the Yaqui tribe to make the medicine bags I began only a few years ago in this new found healing work. 

This workshop generally lasts three hours and costs is $35 per person. The cost includes one 2x4 deer hide medicine bag, with medicinals, crystals and feathers from Diana's personal collection. Bring your sentimental stones or objects that you may want to add to the bag. This is an enlightening and empowering workshop that is meant to lift your spirits up and leave with a tool to carry you forward on your journey. View the workshop outline HERE.

If you register before May 23rd you may choose your Bag size and color at checkout. Registration after May 23rd will get you the type of bags I have in stock, which are usually 2x4in dark tan deer hide.

Regenerative Breathwork

6:00 PM18:00

Regenerative Breathwork

With Alexandra Ma from Flybutterflyfly and The Wisdom Within You

Our breath is the sacred key to unlocking the depths of our own psyche, the unconscious and our full capacity to feel our stored emotions. Breathwork is a simple and profound practice that opens up the gateway for deep cathartic healing through simple breathing techniques. The practice is typically done laying down and in a safe environment where one is free to express themselves through making sound. Often times physical sensations arise in the body and participants may feel a change in temperature (so bring a blanket) as well as experience an intense emotional release. This journey begins with the breath and is carried on as a personal exploration. The sound of the singing bowls help to steep into the body and unlock resistance as well as melt you into safe space and deep peace.

Some people experience visions, insight on past life karma, this lifetime trauma release, states of bliss, physical sensations and major breakthroughs. Please come with an open mind.

The Breathwork Experience is not suggested for those with heart problems or high blood pressure. 

Maximum of 7 people. Cost $20. To complete registration send payment through Paypal to Flybutterflyfly87@yahoo.com or bring cash the day of.
