9c) Handcraft Herbal Smudge Sticks, Incense & Smudge Feathers
Saturday 2nd June 2018 – 10.30am to 4.30pm
We will be crafting with herbs I have grown from seed, with intent for their purpose and healing, together with wild foragings from local, good energy places.
Weather permitting, some of the day will be working amongst the herbs and flowers, in the quiet, meditation and healing part of our garden.
The energy in our homes can affect our health and happiness
Smudging is the burning of sacred herbs, woods or resins to purify and cleanse the energies in our homes. How many times have you entered a home or area and suddenly felt sad, angry or extremely tired when you didn’t before. This is sensing the negative/stagnant energy of the place. Maybe someone has been depressed, arguing, ill or overworked in there. As we clean our homes, it is equally important to cleanse the energy of our homes, workplaces, our auric field and our animals’. This workshop is designed to help you craft your own personal, different varieties of smudge sticks, incense, smudge fans and prayer ties and the correct way of using them. However, it is designed to take you a step further in connecting with the energy of the herbs that choose you.
What you can expect to experience:
• Beautiful guided meditation to connect with the energies of the garden herbs.
• Learn the spiritual energies of the plants, which ones call to you and why.

My spiritual practice is run on the edge of the New Forest and neighbouring old towns of Wimborne, Cranborne and Ringwood. They are all steeped with wise, old ways, traditions, folklore and country ways.
I have worked spiritually for many years and strongly believe in the healing properties of the wise old ways, working with universal energies, crystals, herbs and healing. I have used them extensively in my own life, work and for animals and will be sharing some of this knowledge with you on this workshop.
