Weavers Way Workshop: Solar Smudge

Wednesday, June 21, 2017 - 7:00pm to 8:30pm

Chances are you’ve heard about smudging, the act of burning herbs to transmute negative energy. In this workshop we will discuss a type of smudge called a "solar smudge" — remedies which are gently warming, granting of energy and vitality, and collected in summer for use in the winter. We will collect wild, abundant medicinal “weeds” for our smudges and combine them with pre-collected herbs — everyone will take home their own smudge.

$10 suggested donation / No one turned away for lack of funds


This workshop will be led by Geraldine Lavin, an herbalist, gardener, teacher, and intuitive artist hailing from Philadelphia. Geraldine was the Market Manager for Mill Creek Farm; and the lead greenhouse technician in the U. Penn Biology Department’s greenhouses and botanical garden. Geraldine started the Philadelphia Herbal Network (PHHN), which now has over 100 members. Today she practices clinical herbalism, formulates products, cultivates and wildcrafts herbs and gives workshops.
