Wildflowers & Weeds of the Canyon


Wildflowers & Weeds of the Canyon:

Flower Essences & Plant Communication


with Amanda Ackerman & Saewon Oh

Sunday, May 27  |  1–5pm


Please join Amanda and Saewon for a day in the canyon exploring the medicine of our local plants and wildflowers.  In this workshop, we will discuss the unique healing properties of a number of local plants as food, medicine as well as flower essences (vibrational remedies that address the psycho-spiritual and energetic aspects of wellness).  Immersing ourselves in the local landscape, we will take an interactive plant walk, forage, brew a meadow tea, explore techniques for plant communication and make a flower essence to take home.

The workshop will be held at a private outdoor location overlooking the Pacific Ocean in Topanga Canyon. The address & directions will be emailed to you once you RSVP. Space is limited. All are welcome. To RSVP please click on the link below.

Cost of workshop: $75, which includes a flower essence to take home
