Contemplating Plants: Coming To Your Senses
Robin Harford, Forager and Ethnobotanist - Foraging, whether it be for food, medicine or utilitarian uses can be a deep journey into Soul and a gentle way to ‘get out of our heads and come to our senses'. A way to experience the world and the plant kingdom through ‘new eyes’. A wondrous journey into wildness that comes from walking the Green Path. During this presentation Robin Harford will share through personal stories of meeting indigenous plantwalkers, poetry, and practical examples, the role foraging and contemplative plant focused practices have on ‘re-membering’ ourselves and reconnecting back to Gaia; the living earth. Welcome to the wonderful world of plants, imagination and mystery.
This video contains a 15 minute plant meditation with a plant infusion / tea, to understand the deeper qualities of your plant. The infusion used in the video is Mugwort, however, it can be any plant infusion you would like to work with.
To prepare your infusion, steep a herbal tea bag (not a mixture of herbs / plants, use only 1 herb / plant) for 30-60 minutes, longer if you have time, and leave in a cup close to you while you watch the video. You will be prompted in the video when you will need it.
