In this exploratory workshop, we will sit in circle with each other and with Calendula officinalis with the intention to open dialogue between ourselves and this gentle, sunny plant ally. Whether you are wishing to get to know Calendula for the first time, or have a relationship to Calendula already and are wishing to deepen in connection, you are very welcome here to join us. We will open the circle with a meditation and tea, and there will be space for everyone to share of our experiences. All are welcome to bring their personal experience of connection to Calendula into the circle to share and learn with others.

Discussion and a handout of information about the layers of medicinal, energetic and spiritual properties will be available as well. Please bring a journal and pen, and an open heart!
