DEC 20 // SACRED SMUDGE STICKS

65.00

11A - 1:30P

Smudging is a ritual of burning plants for cleansing, ceremony, prayer, and healing. Sierra Valley's Aurora Wellise will cover the folklores, medicinal and magical qualities of a variety of plants, flowers, herbs and common weeds usable for smudging. The ceremony of burning smudge sticks can be a part of your daily routine that blurs the lines between sacred, secular and artistic balance. These notions will be a continuous part of the conversation. Aurora will hold space for each student to grow in the cultivating of their own healing relationship with plants. Everyone will make their own uniquely beautiful and powerful smudge stick.

PROVIDED SUPPLIES:

ABOUT AURORA WELLISE

I am enchanted by plants. They are beautiful, generous, playful, powerful, ancient healers. My fields of work and study have reflected this interest: anthropology and ethnobotany, design through heritage craft, farm to table restaurants, & holistic skin care. But even at its deepest, this only scratched the surface as it was mostly practical & academic. A few years ago, after moving to Sierra Valley, I was floored by the abundance of old, wise & deeply medicinal plants living in my very yard. I found that I could understand plant medicine directly from them, and that I could also reference this wisdom through scientific and herbal doctrine. It has since been my work and my passion to study plant medicine and to learn directly from plants. I literally live and breath plants, and have never been happier.

My company is called Lawless Botanics. I make herbal tea blends, tinctures, medicinal vinegars, smudge sticks, amulets, protective sacred wreaths and create practical rituals ways to honor ourselves, our ancestors and the natural world. My teaching is a growing edge joining our sacred and our secular lives.

“Plants are always honest, they never lie.” -Aurora Wellise
