From the Forest Witch: Fall Plants & Rituals
Altera Thomas Wright
In Altera’s area in Idaho, the forest, meadows, and mountain sides are incredibly beautiful and inspiring, filled with life, healing and magic. It is impossible to not feel a deep spiritual connection to the land. Each season has a variety of plants, herbs to gather and process for eating, medicine, or magic. In this class Altera shares a few favorite plant allies whose fruits she gathers during the Fall months- Elderberry, Hawthorn, and Rosehips. This class offers: a description of each ally, exploring their healing and spiritual aspects; recipes, how to incorporate the plants into your home apothecary, ideas for your magical practice, the importance of ethical, mindful wildcrafting and honoring the plant spirits. Safety precautions-if you are unable to gather and process your own plant material, options on where to purchase supplies will be offered.
