Magical Herbalism Workshops
Based on "A Woman's Book of Herbs" 
by Magical Herbalist, Elisabeth Brooke


You are warmly invited to Magical Herbal Winter Retreat, an intuitive herbal retreat in Edinburgh, Scotland with Herbalist & Author of "The Woman's Book of Herbs" & forthcoming publication: "As Above, So below", Elisabeth Brooke Magical Herbalism.

Working intuitively with herbs allows us to connect deeply with the character or virtue of the plant, which is often overlooked in book-learning materia medica.

Herbs are more than the sum of their parts, they can be our guides as well as our teachers, if we take the trouble to get to know them as individuals.

Sitting silently and tuning into individual herbs we discover their virtues and their actions on our physical, emotional and mental bodies as well as their use in ritual and ceremony.

What that gives us is a profound knowledge of the character of the herb, which we have experienced personally, so we can choose the correct remedy for treatment or exploration.

Experiencing a herb in this way is a never to be forgotten experience, you will always remember how they made you feel.

As teachers, herbs can show us our path, help us with our shortcomings and guide us on our healing journey.

No experience needed, just an open mind and willing heart.

Each day will be a stand alone experience while both days can be booked as a weekend immersion.

We will be working with different plants each day and different ones from the previous workshops in Scotland. 

In this retreat we will consider the Magical Herbs of Winter - the element Water and the Phlegmatic humour.

On Saturday: We will be working intensely with several phlegmatic herbs and how they affect our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual bodies.

On Sunday: A more didactic day looking at the theory and practice of the element Water, the Phlematic humour and how to use it in your practice or as a tool in preventitive medicine.

We will be working with material from Elisabeth's upcoming book: As Above, So Below - Traditional Western Herbalism (Aeon books, February 2019)
