Doctor, Destroyer, Diviner, Delighter: Women & Sacred Plants

The image of the woman in her garden is an archetype that crosses all time and cultures. The Goddesses of myth and antiquity—as well as real women of the ancient world—were closely associated with medicinal and sacred plants. Wisdom, Grace, relief of sickness and suffering, and visions of the Divine were some of the possibilities offered to the person who consumed these women’s preparations of fruits, berries, leaves, or roots. But in our times, women’s distinctive contributions to plant medicine and plant magic is no longer widely understood or appreciated. This session will discuss some of the ancient and modern women who used their knowledge of sacred plants for magic, inspiration, medicine, seduction, and prophecy.
