Retreat with Rachel Corby
plant whispering & sacred elixir making
This weekend is an opportunity to explore the world of plant spirits and the sacred nature of plant medicine making. You will be introduced to the art of plant whispering, which involves direct communication with plant spirits and results in deeply personal messages from the plant realms.
During the weekend you will learn unique processes to help reawaken your ability to learn directly from plants. You will develop your own unique relationship with the plants we encounter and gain an understanding of their individual personalities, sacred medicine, spirit essence, and guidance.
You will learn to listen to your own body wisdom and work with your senses to understand each individual plant nature; beginning the communication process with plants, body to body. Dropping deeper, into your heart, you will practice direct perception and using your heart as your primary organ of perception.
Once practised, you will communicate directly with the feeling of the plant to understand it's spiritual medicine. Dropping further still you will enter the dream state, to journey and adventure with plant spirits where they can show you their realm, a true deepening of your individual relationship with each plant we study. You will cement your relationships with the plants we meet by making sacred elixirs from their flesh to remind your body and spirit of the medicine they gifted you during your encounters.
You will learn:
The physical, spiritual and emotional medicine of plants.
Plant spirit communication.
Shamanic journey to meet with plant spirits.
Harvesting plants in a sacred manor.
Remedy making such as tinctures, oils, salves, decoctions, infusions.
Elevating an herbal remedy into a sacred elixir.
The art of plant whispering.
You will gain:
The confidence to make and use plant remedies and elixirs.
Direct access to plant wisdom.
Personal medicine for you and where you are on your life path.
The confidence and skills to forge new connections in the plant realms.
Our weekend together will be a time of letting go of what you think you know and allowing the plants to teach you directly. This work is highly experiential, you will learn through experiencing, a method which touches each of your senses and your heart, and so becomes easier to remember than simply learning from books.
At the conclusion of our time together you will have the confidence to treat yourself with home remedies and make your own wild and sacred first aid kit. You will have found plant allies and spiritual medicine from the plant realm. You will also have developed a deep connection to the plant realm and have cultivated a sense of belonging among your wild green relations.
