SPRING EQUINOX MUGWORT DREAMING Mugwort Healing with Sound and Gong Bath

GBP 20.00 - GBP 45.00



Mar 23 2019 18:30 - 21:30


"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.

 Maggie Rose and I are hosting this candlelit evening Mugwort tea ceremony, to thaw out from the ice and darkness of Winter and to warm-up towards the light of Summer. 

Ostara or Spring Equinox is a potent time of year to banish what no longer serves, to call in what we need, and to celebrate Mother Earth and Green Man. Mugwort, Sound and Gongs can assist with this, making space for new growth and alignment.

So, we ask ourselves…What do we need to banish to allow new growth? What do we need to feed our seeds and shoots to help them to grow healthy and strong? Are there any new seeds to be sown? 

This event will suit anyone who

  • wants to celebrate Spring Equinox
  • wants to set intentions for the next cycle/season
  • wants to release/banish obstructions and resistances that no longer serve  
  • needs guidance on how to nurture ideas, healing, projects, etc
  • needs healing, alignment and grounding
  • wishes to connect with plant wisdom, Mother Nature 
  • wishes to connect with sound medicine 
  • has female hormone related issues
  • wishes to open up to innate healing abilities

About Mugwort (Artemisia Vulgaris)

The Dreamers or Witches Medicine

Regulates menstrual cycles, eases painful menstruation and menopause onset 

Has been used to induce abortions, promote labour or to expel afterbirth. 

Brings protection, divination and alignment when used in a ritual context. 

Enhances astral projection, lucid dreaming and altered states of consciousness; fosters prophetic dreams. 

A powerful initiator for those new to the world of natural medicine and healing. 

Mugwort can open you to your healing abilities, setting you off on a healing path. 

About Sound and Gong Baths

A gong bath stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system - the space where healing takes place

'Re-tunes' and clears stuck energy. 

Induces deep relaxation and meditation and stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system - the space of 'rest and digest' where healing occurs. 

Vibrates away stress and strain 

The sound healing resonance complements Mugworts protection and alignment qualities, and may enhance visions offering prophecy and insight.

PLEASE NOTE: You MUST read the 'contra-indications' below before booking. 

NOTE: Cacao is on offer as an alternative upon request. Or just come to enjoy the guided meditation, softer sounds and gong bath.
