This weekend I will be contributing to the Plant Consciousness Conference in London. My presentation will be
The Curriculum of Thirteen Moons – Working with the Sacred Plants of the Druid Tradition
Working with plants in a sacred or magical way lies at the heart of indigenous spiritualities and earth religions. Many of us are drawn to these ‘Old Ways’ because they combine a sense of deep spirituality with a love for the Earth and Her creatures. Any sense we might have of being split between Spirit and Matter, Inner and Outer, the committed and the detached, even the mystical and the magical, can be healed when we work with solid, sensual beings – such as plants, animals and humans – in a sacred way. A rich heritage of plant lore exists in Britain and we can trace this heritage at least as far back as the Bronze Age. In exploring these gifts we can discern at least thirteen ways in which to work with plants in a sacred manner as we follow the ‘Old Ways’.
