Online Network Gathering

Tuesday 15th October 2024  7-8pm online 

We are delighted that The Seed Sistas are joining us for an online exploration of plants and herbal medicine for the Daisy Days.

Plants infuse their lives with meaning and wonder that they long to share with you. What can we gather from our gardens, hunt in the hedgerows and forage from the forest floor to nurture us in the days after a dear one takes their last breath? Which herbs have traditionally been used for body care? Which plants can soothe and comfort ourselves? Can the medicine of the plant world assist the passage of the soul?

We believe the days between someone’s last breath and their burial or cremation are so important that we have given them a special name – the Daisy Days. We look forward to exploring together with Kaz and Fi from their wealth of knowledge how we can connect with daisies and other plants to support, orientate and comfort us during this time -the living and the dead, on all levels.

Come along and ask your questions about this important time too.

Kaz and Fi are The Seed Sistas, herbalists, authors, eco-activists, who run social enterprise Sensory Solutions Herbal Evolution. They have two books, speak at conferences around the world and run programs for learning about herbs both online and in person. Their passion is connecting people back into the medicine of the plant world that grows around them.
