Sat 29th May at 17h – 18h30 Plant medicine and herbalism with Sanne
Sanne will be introducing you to different herbs that may support you through all of the phases of your menstrual cycle, as well as some of the different forms in which you can work with them. She will also introduce different plants intimately connected to the archetypes of the Maiden, Mother, and Crone, and how herbs can connect to different phases of your life and the growth processes therein. At the end of the class, she will guide you through a journey to allow you make contact with a plant that is here to share some of its wisdom with you for this particular moment, or even to make contact to your very first personal plant ally – if you are completely new to herbalism.
Sanne’s journey with herbalism started at the foot of the Andean mountains where she was introduced to the plant world by the Colombian women that she worked with at the time. She then later started to study herbalism back in her hometown in the Netherlands with her teacher Maartje, who holds such incredible wisdom and with whom she continues to study to this day. The plant kingdom has immensely enriched her experience as a human upon this Earth, and she is honoured to share with you some of the wisdom of our great plant allies.
