Many of us, especially if we are sensitive, are registering the fragmentations and disturbances or our present moment at deep psychic, soul, and somatic levels. Our media-scape seems to amp up this energetic noise just as we are seeking to strengthen our own guardianship of one another and our planet, claim our own aliveness, and actively work toward better realities. In this workshop, led by flower essence therapist Amanda Ackerman, we will work with specific mineral and flower essences whose safe and easy daily use can work as a kind of soul retrieval, also offering specific insight into the current collective issues we are traveling through. Regular applications of these remedies can promote unexpected, innovative, and deviant ways to unwind programmatic social norms, shrug off illusory medias, protect our world-building, and allow us to claim our own songs and vibratory integrity.
