Herbal Immersion: Tea Meditation & Monograph
Meeting a plant through direct experience in an immersive tea meditation and a monograph workshop.
Join in a tea meditation and interactive monograph discussion, held in the barn at Fair Harvest Permaculture Farm 2-5pm (1st October 2023).
This workshop may be for you if you are curious about deepening your relationship with the plants that grow around you, feel drawn to the path of the intuitive herbalist, often feel curious about herbal folklore and myth and want to learn about a plant's medicinal qualities and through a direct experience, in an accessible and collective way.
A 'tea meditation' is a blind tasting with one plant, where you will be guided to notice and experience what this plant touches within you. There will be some gentle movement, stillness, time for journalling, reflecting and optional sharing with the group.
Together, we will create a herbal monograph compiling our experiences and observations to learn the qualities of this plant deeper.
We will wrap up by discussing different herbal preparations or rituals we may wish to use at home to continue our immersion with a chosen plant.
Herbal folklore, plant spirit medicine, intuitive herbalism, evidence-based herbalism, and traditional herbalism are all knitted into this immersive 3-hour workshop.

About the facilitator:
Tamara here. I am a student herbalist, workshop facilitator and permaculture teacher who began studying & immersing in the processes of grass-roots herbalism, Intuitive and Traditional Herbalism in 2019. Over the past 4 years, I have become immersed in both Permaculture and herbalism grass-roots education/living and completed a Diploma of Western Herbal Medicine in 2022, and various Permaculture courses 2020-22. My recent approach to herbalism is informed by my Health Science studies and various grass-roots herbalism movements worldwide that aim to make herbal medicine knowledge accessible.
This workshop is directly inspired by time spent immersing with the herbs at the School of Intuitive Herbalism (2019, 2023), check out their website if you'd like to know more.
Through my workshops, I aim to highlight the importance of learner-centred learning, skill sharing, personal connection to plants for healing, community-sufficiency building, as well as the joy that slow and simple home herbalism can bring to our daily lives.
