“There are certain things you can experience in life that change the way you view the world. A plant walk with friendly, hip instructor Becky is one of them.” – Angela H., Urban Foraging 101 attendee
Urban Foraging 101: Plant Identification & Meditation
Sunday, June 14, 2 pm to 5 pm
New Renaissance Bookshop
1338 NW 23rd Ave., Portland, OR 97210
Come along for a unique eco-journey through the urban wilderness of northwest Portland in which common weeds and trees are revealed to be food, medicine and poison. Our adventure will wind around the urban blocks surrounding New Renaissance Bookshop, eventually leading us back to the metaphysical store’s sacred event space, which is saturated with very positive energy. Here we will explore plant spirit healing work in a special guided meditation to meet plants in the non-physical realm. Here you will receive activations for your ability to commune with the plant spirit world and experience firsthand the wisdom and healing energy of these beautiful beings. This unique workshop is both an opportunity to connect with the plant world and also a chance to offer some much-needed healing energy to the Earth in the form of our attention, intention, and love.
Wear comfortable shoes. You may want to bring water and a snack, as well as a camera and notebook.
Fee: $40, reserve your spot by calling (503) 224-4929 or visiting the store. Drop-ins welcome if space allows.
