THERE ARE TWO SPACES LEFT FOR THIS EVENT!

This is the SECOND Weed Walk Date in May! 

Memorial Day Weekend: Come delight in the discovery that wild food and herbal medicine is all around us wherever we live. Enjoy an uplifting and sensory educational experience identifying, sniffing, and tasting the wild local plants that are often dismissed as mere weeds. The plants you likely spend hours pulling out of your garden may become your new best friends when you discover that plantain stops the itch of a mosquito bite, dandelion leaves strengthen kidneys and ease blood pressure, and violets are rich in salicylic acid and can reduce headache pain! Nature is a marvelous teacher and ally and Robin Rose has been leading people on “weed walks” for 30 years. This will be a relaxing stroll through lawn and gardens and fun for all ages. 

$35 adults, children under 12 free, and 12-18 or students are $17

Location: Brown's Point Park near West Milford, NJ, Park and Ride. There is an 11:30 AM NJ transit bus that goes to this location from the Port Authority Bus station in NYC. If you need more information, please email my assistant.

May 1 @ 02:00 PM - 04:00 PM

One of the most common ways of healing self, family and friends is with homemade herbal medicines called “meals.” As Hippocrates said, “Let your food be your medicine, and your medicine be your food.”

There is medicine all around us. Our kitchens, including our spice racks, can be an abundant source of effective medicine for us, and safer than what we find in the pharmacy. Open your mind and your senses to the broader possibilities for creating healing feasts in your own kitchen.

WEDNESDAY JANUARY 19TH at 8PM! Magical Thinking or Delusion? The term "magical thinking" has come to mean something so different than its intended purpose, purporting anyone who can daydream can practice this delusional non-acceptance of reality and call it magic! Join me and Pam Grossman (Phantasmaphile and The Witch Wave Podcast) in a LIVE conversation on Instagram about the very REAL differences in passive "magical thinking" as it is known today, and true Magical Thinking as an active practice.

Join me in a virtual community gathering to celebrate the Solstice and the winter season in the northern hemisphere.

Rest and dream in the safety of deep darkness as you conceive the authentic spark of your own unique light and life and call forth the inner gifts you wish to rebirth in the spring. And together, we'll shine a light on justice and peace. Register here!
