Plant Spirit Journey with Rachel Corby
Meet with a plant, at first physically using your body and your senses to touch, smell and nibble. Become aware of your body wisdom, and how your body and the plant communicates, something that we usually either don’t notice or simply ignore. You will then be led on a shamanic drum journey (no experience necessary) to meet with the spirit of the plant and ask if it has a personal message or some medicine for you.
This session will close with an opportunity for everyone to share their experience, so that we can all learn from each other and deepen our understanding of the plant’s individual and unique character.
Rachel has been leading groups in shamanic drum journeys to meet with plant spirits since 2006, regularly leading workshops and retreats on connecting with plant consciousness. She runs a rewilding apprenticeship every other year, and part of personal rewilding is acknowledging the “livingness” of other non-human beings; be they plant, animal, rock, water.
She is the author of 4 published books, all of which have been about plants and /or rewilding. The most recent of those was published in October 2019 and is titled “Rewilding & The Art Of Plant Whispering”. The focus of that book is communicating with other species, primarily plants. Acknowledgement of the sentient, intelligent nature of plants (and other beings) leads to a whole new way of being in the world.
