"Mugwort opens up chambers of ancient memory within the brain, bringing to one's dream life stirring visions of past and future that overflow with magical imagery. The symbols that dance through your Mugwort-touched dreams pull out the cobwebs of our forgetfulness and assist us in remembering old, unwritten ways of healing and living that attend to the needs of spirit and soul.” Judith Berger, Herbal Rituals
This event will suit anyone who:
needs alignment and grounding
wishes to connect with plant wisdom, Mother Nature
wishes to open up to innate healing abilities
has an interest in visioning and lucid dreaming
About Artemisia Vulgaris (Mugwort)
Known as The Queen Witch of the Hedgerows, Artemisia Vulgaris has a plethora of benefits. She regulates menstrual cycles, eases painful menstruation and menopause onset. She has been used to induce abortions, promote labour or to expel afterbirth and brings protection, divination and alignment when used in a ritual context. She enhances astral projection, lucid dreaming and altered states of consciousness fostering prophetic dreams and visions. As well as this, she is a powerful initiator for those new to the world of natural medicine and healing with the ability to open you to your healing abilities, thus setting you off on a healing path.
Artemisia Vulgaris is a most certainly a powerful ally!

IMPORTANT NOTE (PLEASE READ BEFORE BOOKING)

Please also contact Shashay if you are trying to conceive, are pregnant or lactating or if you are already an active lucid dreamer. Do not consume Artemisia Vulgaris for more than one week continuously as can cause nervous problems, liver damage and convulsions. Some people have topical allergies to Artemisia – test some on your skin before using. Any issues with dryness may be worsened by Artemisia.
This will be a nurturing space regardless of your experience, belief or non-belief. So please, come along! All are welcome!
Short practitioner Bio:
Shashay from SoundSeva is all about sharing her knowledge and wisdom and Artemesia Vulgaris has been a powerful initiator in her life. Artemisia taught her to follow her healing path with faith and confidence and led her to life-changing Maestros of human, plant and nature form. In facilitating both 1:1 healing and group events, Shashay is committed to authentic service to share her 25+ years of skills and experience in meditation, personal and spiritual development through the complementary therapy modalities that she has accumulated over those years. Activations and teachings from Buddhist monks, modern mystic Thomas Hubel, plant medicine practitioners, and Maestro Shamans from Britain, North and South America further nourish her service, while her previous formal work background in Adult Mental Health and Childrens Social Work lends psycho-social and holistic underpinning knowledge.
An eternal student; she continues her shamanic and plant medicine apprenticeship and walks a Healing Path with a sense of service, compassion and gratitude.
