“No tree, it is said, can grow to heaven unless its roots reach down to hell.”   – Carl Jung

Did you know that the image of witches flying on broomsticks comes from a psychedelic folk practice of the middle ages? Or that much of the lore surrounding Christmas can be traced back to Northern European shamans working with Amanita muscaria?

“Poisonous” plants can be powerful medicine. When understood and respected they guide us to our whole self. They are fierce teachers, helping us embrace what we’ve been taught to avoid.

In this introduction to poisonous plants we will discuss some of the lore, magical, & historical uses of these oft maligned allies. These plants can be great allies to healers, therapists, and anyone interested in supporting themselves or others during difficult times.

We will also review safe ways to work with these plants (hint: don’t ingest them!)

Kathryn has dedicated her life to the study and practice of non-duality and inner work. She is the author and illustrator of “Here You Are,” a collection of original minimalist tantric paintings and straightforward non-dual writings designed to guide you into the present moment, into your body, and into your heart. She teaches meditation classes and workshops on poisonous plants and various spiritual topics. Kathryn also works one on one with people looking to remember their authentic Selves through the use of tarot readings, dream interpretation, herbal medicine, intuition building, mindfulness, shamanic journeying, creative expression, and meditation. She graduated with a degree in fine arts from Naropa University, a Buddhist-inspired university, in Boulder, Colorado, and did a sacred plant medicine apprenticeship with The Gaia School of Healing in Putney, Vermont. She is currently finishing up a Hakomi training, a type of mindfulness based body-centered psychotherapy.
