April 5th: "Spring, the Uprising," with Joyce Netishen
- Spring, The Uprising...
Spring is filled with power and action, direction and purpose. It is filled with light.
In this class we will talk about the personality of spring and its myriad manifestations on the wheel of life, and how each and every one of us is extrinsically linked and connected to the same movement and dance of this season… and every season. We are divine manifestations of the same cosmic forces. We will talk about ways to engender and strengthen the way spring moves through us and explore some plant allies to help us along the way.
Joyce Netishen is an herbalist and caretaker of Fire Rose Farm, a small, abundant and magical herb farm where she teaches classes in the spirit and mystery of plant medicine, flower essences, and the wheel of life. Her apothecary is filled with an exquisite line of flower essences, handcrafted botanicals and rustic, handmade soap that she prepares in small batches and fills with kindness and beauty and offers to the community. She loves to write and take pictures.
