Wednesday, March 20th, 6:45pm - 8pm — Full Moon Night!
All materials provided: including light snacks, refreshments, and adult libations.
In this class we will talk about the history of smudging and the properties of the plants commonly used to make smudge sticks. We will discuss the practical methods of collecting and drying herbs and flowers for use in creating smudge sticks. We will then assist you in making your own smudge stick using your choice of dried herbs, flowers, and crystals.
This class is taught by Andrea Julian of Saracen Provisions.
Smudging is the ritual burning of herbs to cleanse a space and set intention. The burning of dried herbs as a spiritual practice goes back to the very beginning of human history. Smoke itself is deeply symbolic — it ascends to heaven, as if bringing any prayers and intentions up to the gods with it. From the incense of Asia and Europe to the sage and cedar of the indigenous Americans, the smoke generated by plants has a primordial history of use as part of spiritual practice.
Since this class takes place on the full moon, we will talk about full moon rituals and setting intentions. You will learn how to create a personalized ritual, utilizing smudging and crystals, so you can set your intention for the next moon cycle!
