Weave a world of plant wonder! (Weaving Crowns/ Wreaths into Dream Catchers) w/Angie Gregory Together we'll tune into the message of weeping willow as we interlace her branches into circular form.Hearing our own song we'll gather plants and flowers that we're drawn to and talk about the ways in which they can aid us on our journey. Threading them into our circle we'll have created a crown or wreath that we can draw from all year long. If time allows the option of turning them into dream catchers will further this hands-on project.

Spiritual Plant Bathing w/Venus Zephyr
As we enter the season of Autumn we find ourselves among the last days of the beautiful bounty of the natural world. With flowers, leaves and fresh plants we will gather the allies that the children are most called to and prepare a bathing blend that is sweet and fragrant for our young ones to enjoy. Plant Bathing is one of the most excellent ways of connecting children with the green world, through water, plants, sunlight and intentions we will create a meaningful ritual for our children as we enter the autumnal turning time.We will spend some quiet time talking and sitting with the sacred plants, singing and communing as we prepare the plant bath, and then frolicking as we immerse each other in taking the waters.
Children are encouraged to bring any flowers from their gardens, neighborhoods and doorsteps that might want to come along.
