Ethnobotanist Kathleen Harrison will teach a workshop about universal forms of plant-related rituals, which are rooted in cultures around the world. She will weave these methods into stories invoking intuition, healing, protection, ancestors, and courage. Wherever your people arose from, there are ways of working respectfully with nature's intelligence, principles of ritual, and your own roots, to be genuine in your plant relationships, and to help calm the world.
