Magick of the Shepherdess

The Mazatec indians of Mexico used the herb Salvia divinorum, also called Diviner's Sage, Herb of the Virgin, and Herb of the Shepherdess, as a tool to train apprentice shamans to use entheogens. The Mazatecs used Salvia d. in the form of a gentle infusion. North Americans have discovered this fascinating plant and use has become widespread over the last decade, generally involving the more intense method of smoking leaves or extracts. Many of us have discovered that the Herb of the Shepherdess is not necessarily an easy entheogen to work with, but with some persistence she is a rewarding ally who continues her work of training shamans. This workshop will discuss aspects and methods of use and will offer a short hypnotic introduction to the experience. Salvia d. will NOT be used during the session.
