Green greetings to you all, friends, students, and mentor-ees.
Once again, the little bulbs of Holland burst forth in color to enliven the last days of spring. It sure is nice to sit back and enjoy the work I put in months ago when I planted those bulbs.
Something new is blooming everyday now. I have chosen some real wildflower beauties to share with you this week. But not to worry, not only are they beautiful (and beautifully dressed in becoming shades of white, yellow, and blue) they are medicinal too.
It is almost time for my semi-annual workshop at Rowe Center
in northwest Massachusetts. This year it is the first weekend of May and we are gathering to celebrate the trees. Rowe Center is one of those special places where they get everything “right:” the food, the energy, the accommodations, the teaching spaces, the wonderful staff. I guarantee that our weekend together absorbing the medicine of the standing people will be relaxing, renewing, and, as always, filled with stories, songs, recipes, and the magic and mystery of the green nations. I hope you will join me.
Speaking of workshops, I still have openings available in the Green Goddess Apprentice Week
and the Green Witch Intensive
this summer at the Wise Woman Center. These events always create a community of women focused on learning to love themselves and learning how to use simple herbal medicine, the Wise Woman Way.
We’re coming to the end of our core curriculum on cedar. I trust you have found one or more ways to invite Grandmother Cedar into your life. Soon we will switch our focus to plantain, ever useful, ever peaceful plantain, the bandage plant. If you haven’t already, now is the time to choose a mentorship level so you can enjoying the special core curriculum, special teleseminars, videos, and more.
Here is a recipe for new greens salad, made from plants you already know. Enjoy!
