Majikal/Medicinal Herbalism

Many people have found their way back to the basics using herbs for health and wellness. What people fail to realize, is that most of these herbs are available locally, both cultivated & wild. Matthew will teach about common and esoteric herbals, ways to prepare them, and how the medicinal and the majikal cannot be separated.

Shamanic/Ethnobotanical Herbs

From the dawn of man, humans have used herbs and herbal preparations to expand consciousness. In this workshop, Matthew will cover ancient to modern civilizations' love/hate relationship with conscience expanding herbs. He will touch on readily available botanicals, and ways to open pathways within the mind and spirit.
