Know Thy Self

One of the most basic skills anyone that uses trance needs is knowledge of themselves.  We all forget this or overlook it from time to time.  With this workshop we will be discussing why we should forge a relationship with ourselves, discuss ways to do make and maintain this relationship, and do a couple exercises to get us started

Presented by Rev. Robert Lewis

The Drunken Botanist

As Druids, we hold the nature spirits in great reverence.  And many of us also hold high regard for a different kind of "spirits".  But how often do we contemplate the relationship between the two?

In her book, "The Drunken Botanist", Amy Stewart explores the world of wine, beer and cocktails from a horticultural perspective.  Inspired by her book, we will present an overview of some of the most flavorful contributions of the plant world, from the humble potato to the more exotic star anise.

Wicked Plants

This will be a discussion on the less wholesome aspects of the plant world.  Amy Stewart's book "Wicked Plants" is the inspiration for this workshop on toxins, poisons, and plants that misbehave.

Indo-European Sacred Drink

Central to the ritual and mythology of the Indo-Europeans was a sacred drink, ranging from the ale of sovereignty and mead of inspiration of northwest Europe to the soma of India.  This workshop will present the evidence from the different Indo-European traditions, speculate on what an original drink and ritual would have been like, and make suggestions for how such a drink and ritual can be incorporated into modern practice.
