With Storyteller, Green Witch, Herbalist & Author of Healing Magic
Robin Rose Bennett

New 7-Week Live Video Training Starts
Thursday, September 15, 2022

 
 
 

Delve into what it means to be a Green Witch — to recognize the sovereign consciousness of plants and their ability to provide physical healing, spiritual guidance, and a loving community during times of isolation.

Harness the power and potency of plants by learning to prepare tinctures, infusions, and special medicinal potions that can positively transform your life and provide you with rejuvenation and inner peace.

 

According to the wisdom of the Green Witch, plants have the capacity to be our teachers, elders, and healers — offering sustenance to our body, mind, and spirit — if we know how to honor and work with them as beings that have tremendous power. 

Plants are magical creatures that often show up where and when we need them most, providing us with the right medicine at the right time — medicine for challenges we may not even be aware of, but may be impacting our ability to feel as healthy and joyful as we can. 

In fact, plants even have the potential to alter our consciousness, if we’re willing to open our minds and listen to their messages. 

In this extraordinary new 7-week course with herbalist Robin Rose Bennett,  you’ll discover what it means to be a Green Witch, as she guides you to listen to the wisdom plants have to offer, so you can live in a state of optimal wellbeing.  

As a Green Witch herself for over 30 years, she’ll show you the magic that lives within the plant world and uncover their therapeutic benefits — such as nourishing your body, reducing anxiety and depression, boosting your immune function, and releasing toxins

You’ll learn how to concoct your own potions, tinctures, and elixirs, which can heal you physically and emotionally — and provide you a gateway into profound spiritual connection.

With Rose’s guidance, you’ll create rituals that honor the moon, the seasons, and nature’s continual cycle of renewal.

She’ll offer easy-to-understand instructions for making your own herbal tonics and potions

And you’ll experience practices to attune to nature, while embracing your own power of self-healing. As you learn to inhabit the world of the Green Witch, you’ll unveil the abundant gifts that nature has in store for you.

 

During this empowering and healing journey, you’ll:

  • Begin a journey of spiritual connection with all living plants to relieve depression, anxiety, and feelings of isolation 
  • Enter the world and the way of the Green Witch — and learn how to incorporate this special mindset, ritual, ceremony, and preparation of herbal and plant medicines into your life
  • Learn how to make potent medicinal infusions
  • Discover why weeds are some of the most precious and potent herbal medicines
  • Celebrate the solar holidays — learn what they are, when they are, and why Green Witches celebrate them
  • Explore infused herbal body bath recipes for physical and spiritual healing
  • Learn about lunar and solar energies and what they mean for Green Witches
  • Discover the correlation between heart health and happiness
  • Be guided in weekly meditations, joyful songs, and gentle movement practices that help you connect to each plant you’re studying
  • Discuss eating as a ritual of gratitude and the benefits of singing for digestion
  • Learn about tinctures and how to make them
  • Experience a new moon ritual and meditation
  • Close out the course by preparing for a Samhain/Witch’s New Year celebration and participating in a new moon ritual
  • And much more…
 
 

As you hone your capacity as a Green Witch, you’ll begin to find harmony in all of Earth’s great elements and connect your soul to every living creature.

The course will begin near the autumn equinox — a time for expressing gratitude for the blessings of the year, and clearing the way for a new beginning. 

Each week, you’ll participate in transformative rituals, guided meditations, and movement practices to help you connect with the plants in a more meaningful way.

You’ll also discover which herbs and plants to use throughout the different cycles of the moon. 

And, at the close of the program, Robin Rose will lead you through a special Samhain/Witch’s New Year ceremony to honor nature’s bounty and the beginning of the spiritual new year.

Weekly Sessions Thursdays at 1:00pm Pacific

This course will feature LIVE teachings, interactive training sessions, experiential practices, and Q&A with Robin Rose. Each session will build harmoniously upon the previous ones, so you’ll develop a complete holistic understanding of the practices, tools, and principles you’ll need to understand plants as conscious beings who are here to share their wisdom and love with you.

Module 1: Healing Through Nourishment — Learning to Trust Herbs & Your Body (September 15)

 

Herbs are powerful healers and teachers. They heal through love as well as their complex chemical components.

In this opening session, we’ll focus on nourishing the ground of our being with plants and everyday rituals through herbal infusions and foot baths.

We and the Earth are mostly made up of water, so water-based medicines are a primary way to receive the greatest benefits from the herbs you ingest, whether you’re drinking them or steeping your feet in them.

We’ll begin with nettles and red clover, as they’re two of the most common, yet precious, supportive herbs in the world. You’ll explore the benefits of getting to know, respect, and love weeds/wildflowers, as well as the differences between a cup of tea and a medicinal infusion.

We’ll open with a centering meditation to help bring everyone into themselves and finish with a grounding meditation to bring us into a deeper connection with the Earth.

In this session, you’ll:

  • Learn how to make a potent medicinal infusion
  • Discover how, when, and why to make an effective foot bath
  • Explore why weeds are the most precious herbal medicines
  • Dive deep into nettles and red clover — their benefits, preparations, and cautions
  • Be guided through an opening centering meditation, and a closing grounding meditation
 

Module 2: Autumn Equinox & Seasonal Tonics — The Dynamic Dance of the Seasons (September 22)

 

You’ll explore the framework of the primary solar holidays that make up the Wheel of the Year.

Autumn is Witch’s Thanksgiving, and for Green Witches, this is the ultimate time of expressing gratitude for all the gifts that Nature provides.

We’ll focus on the herbs oatstraw (avena sativa ) and mullein (verbascum thapsus), exploring the abundant array of physical and spiritual gifts that these two plants offer.

We’ll discuss a variety of ways to receive their benefits, from teas to full-strength infusions to how to make a medicinal-strength full-body bath, to smoking dried mullein, and more.

Together we’ll do a moving meditation/ritual of becoming oatstraw so you can experience for yourself how this plant teaches the strength that’s found in fluidity.

In this session, you’ll:

  • Learn about oatstraw and mullein, including their benefits, preparations, and cautions
  • Discover the solar holidays — what they are, when they are, and why celebrate them
  • Explore infused herbal body baths for physical and spiritual healing
  • Participate in a meditative body practice you can do when you need to reconnect with your center and flow
 

Module 3: Moon Rituals — New to Full & the Phases in Between — Traveling the Inner Pathways of the Lunar Spiral (September 29)

 

This week we meet under a waxing crescent moon in the Northern Hemisphere, and we’ll explore the power of the inner psychic journey that we embark upon every month.

Living in a solar-oriented culture, the Divine Feminine energy of the moon has been submerged. When we fully reclaim this magic, our spiritual and physical health will benefit, along with the health of our world at large.

We’ll work with mugwort/cronewort (artemisia vulgaris), a plant famous for helping open the third eye (which Robin Rose calls the first eye).

Mugwort is a systemic healer, strengthening virtually every system of the body. When working psychically, it’s vital to stay attuned to physical wellbeing, so we’ll explore how this common roadside weed is really pure magic.

In this session, you’ll:

  • Learn about artemisia — its benefits, preparations, and cautions
  • Participate in a Waxing Moon Ritual Meditation
  • Explore lunar and solar energies and what they mean for Green Witches
  • Be guided in a ritual practice to help you stay connected to your intuitive wisdom
 

Module 4: Joy & the Cardiovascular System — Learning to Take Care of Our Physical, Emotional & Spiritual Hearts (October 6)

 

Your heart reflects the core essence of who you are in your soul.

Joy is the heart’s most profound medicine, and yet it’s not always easy to claim and feel joy in this time of relentless challenges both in the world and in our own lives.

How can herbs help? The heart and circulatory system offer a profound metaphor of the human condition of giving and receiving, emptying and filling.

Robin Rose will guide you through a meditative journey through the workings of your cardiovascular system to illuminate the magic that’s going on inside your precious body every moment of your life.

You’ll explore the amazing gifts of three wondrous trees: hawthorn — her berries, blossoms, leaves, and thorns — linden blossoms, and elderberries and blossoms. You’ll learn how to make medicines from these trees, and explore several recipes for elderberry elixirs.

In this session, you’ll:

  • Discover the correlation between heart health and happiness
  • Learn about hawthorn, elder, and linden — their benefits, preparations, and cautions
  • Explore joy as medicine
  • Participate in a meditative journey through your cardiovascular system
 

Module 5: Resilience, Stability & the Nervous System — Herbal Medicine & Earth Connection Practices (October 13)

 

Your nervous system holds the key to being able to engage fully in your life.

Herbal medicine and simple rituals aid enormously in being able to move through these times of evolutionary transformation with more emotional ease, greater mental clarity, and physical and spiritual peace.

Nervines can help with pain relief, deep sleep, and clear skin. We’ll hone in on the gifts of sedating skullcap (scutellaria lateriflora), uplifting St. John’s/Joan’s wort (hypericum perforatum), and anxiety-calming motherwort (leonurus cardiaca), the lion-hearted one.

We’ll also touch on the gifts of violet, who helps us feel our grief so we can hold it inside the larger container of our natural joy.

We’ll look at tinctures, what they are, how to make them with fresh and dry herbs, and why and when to use them.

We’ll engage in a simple meditation and ritual application of St. John’s wort oil. As always, you can use a different herbal oil such as lavender or rose if you don’t have access to the one suggested.

In this session, you’ll:

  • Learn about skullcap, St. john’s/joan’s wort, and motherwort — their benefits, preparations, and cautions
  • Explore the connection of the nervous system to emotions
  • Engage in a simple meditation and ritual application of St. John’s wort oil
  • Learn about tinctures and how to make them
 

Module 6: Digestive Health — Ingestion, Assimilation & Elimination (October 20)

 

This week, we’ll focus on herbs that help digest food, and in some cases are food. We’ll look into chamomile, a variety of basils, dandelion, and burdock medicines.

These herbs not only help with physical digestion, they can help us digest and assimilate our life experiences, eliminating what doesn’t serve us.

Herbs can help as antispasmodics, soothers, relievers of gas, and strengtheners of the liver, supporting bile production. No diet is right for everyone. This system invites you to become aware of what does and doesn’t serve you.

In this session, you’ll:

  • Discover the benefits of a “rainbow” diet
  • Learn which herbs can soothe upset stomach or nausea, and ease common complaints such as constipation, diarrhea, gas, cramping, and acid reflux
  • Learn how to make a digestive decoction
  • Discuss eating as a ritual of gratitude and the benefits of singing for digestion
 

Module 7: Rituals, Spiraling Cycles & Ritual Herbs — Daily & Spontaneous Rituals, Preparation for Samhain & New Moon Ritual Meditation (October 27)

 

In the closing session, you’ll explore herbs that can help you deepen your intuitive awareness and cultivate inner wisdom. We’ll dive into white pine (pinus strobus ) medicine, roses (rosa spp.), grandmother cedar (thuja occidentale), and more.

Halloween/Samhain is the Witch’s new year, the most profound holy day of the year, when the veils between the worlds are thin.

You’ll connect with ginkgo biloba in meditation in preparation for this Earth holiday. Robin Rose will also share about ways to incorporate simple, yet profound rituals into everyday life, as a helpful way to incorporate the reality of magic into your every waking moment.

We’ll conclude with a new moon ritual marking the ending/death of one cycle of learning together, and celebrating the birth of the new cycle of growth and evolutionary transformation.

In this session, you’ll:

  • Learn about white pine, roses, and grandmother cedar — their benefits, preparations, and cautions
  • Connect with ginkgo biloba in meditation
  • Experience a new moon ritual and meditation
  • Explore Samhain/Witch’s New Year

More Praise for Robin Rose Bennett...

 
“My entire family has been enjoying and benefiting from all of this beautiful medicine!”

My entire family has been enjoying and benefiting from all of this beautiful medicine! We love the infusions, the honeys, the digestive balls, the oxymel. I have been making pine infusions from the Aleppo Pines where I live, which has been so nourishing and healing. This class is changing my relationship to the plants that surround me every day, and has urged me to connect with plants in my community in this mutually medicinal way.
— Bianca Sapetto

“I have enjoyed your class immensely and I will keep your books as references and reread them.”

Oh, my gosh, I had such an aha! moment: When you talk about “wanting to want something is different from wanting SOME thing.” The way things are going in my life right now – that hit me like a brick. I’m going to use tonight‘s full moon to meditate on the concept and then maybe by the next full moon I will have an answer. I have enjoyed your class immensely and I will keep your books as references and reread them. Looking forward to your next book. 
— Lydia Kelly

I am actually speechless right now and so at peace and filled with contentment from the beautiful meditation.
— Lynne McNelly
