Tree buds burst forth, green leaves sprout open, petals protrude, each sign of new growth is the sounding of a celebratory bell in the bright air. We hear the sap song that rises in the trees, the wheel of the year spins into Spring. What are all of the ways that we honor Spring in the body and in relationship to place? This series invokes the vibrancy of the blossoming season while rooting down into the folk magic traditions of Old Europe. Some themes include: holy wells & water spirits, egg magic & oomancy, vernal kitchen traditions, chthonic forces of spring, sex magic, Beltane, hedge jumping, trees for the quickening season and more! Homework will be assigned such as creative writing, medicine making and relational readings. We will learn about the language of spring through reading vernal-themed folktales and poems.


We will meet every other Sunday from 5-7 pm EST on zoom
