Backyard Herbalism

Otter Rose

Herbalism can be daunting to learn, but starting with just a few local plants can simplify the experience and help us to connect to our local environment. Many plants we find in our backyards, roadsides or local natural areas can have medicinal and magical uses. We will focus on identification of a few local plants and learn their medicinal and magical uses. 

Otter is an eclectic pagan, social worker, naturalist, and a Cofounder of Dandelion Pagan Collective.

Pagan InterPlay

Jennifer Dodson

InterPlay is a form of creative self-expression developed by Cynthia Winton-Henry and Phil Porter. At this workshop, we’ll do some InterPlay forms with gentle movement (adaptable as needed), and some wordplay as well. There is no wrong way to do InterPlay – it’s designed for creative self-expression.

We’ll start with a gentle warm-up, and then move to Walk, Stop, Run. We’ll do a little babbling, which is a spoken word form, and end up with either a hand dance or hand-to-hand contact. I’ll chose a Pagan oriented theme.

Jennifer is a certified InterPlay leader and a heathen.

Use the movement, breath, and stillness of yoga to prepare for experiencing magickal energies in sacred circle. Learn how grounding can be done with simple yoga asanas (poses), how the breath can clear your own energy channels to make you a better conduit for God and Goddess, how finding strength in physical movement makes you better at creating circle, and more. All poses in our class will be done standing, so you will not need a yoga mat, but you can bring one if you have one. Participants are also welcome to participate from a chair if they are unable to stand.

Kymberly is an eclectic pagan putting on public and private rituals for over over 10 years, and a certified 200 hour yoga teacher. She teaches Intro to Flow Yoga at Journeys in Yoga.
