Plant Exploration Intensive
A Goethean Approach
The Plant Exploration Intensives are an opportunity for those with a keen interest in medicinal plants to deepen their knowledge, understanding and connection with the plants. Each Intensive session will explore one particular medicinal plant.
The plant exploration intensives are a richly rewarding way of deeply connecting with the plant we are studying. A full day is spent with the living plant or tree as we use many different modalities which involve all our senses as we seek to enhance our understanding of the plant.
The day starts with deepening our observational skills both as individuals and as a group, as we study the living plant. The next stage of the day has us moving into individual study of the plant before coming back together again to synthesise what we have learned. The method of exploration is based on the works of Goethe. He developed a unique approach to science that brings acute scientific observation together with the intuitive senses enlivened through the creative process.
The day will involve meditation, drawing, painting, music, poetry, dance and creating medicine as we allow the plant to weave it's magic through us.
For anyone who works closely with plants this is a transformational process where you will find deeper levels of understanding of the plant's medicine - even for plants you think you know well.
