Herb walks are an exploration of nature, deeper than your regular walk-in-the-park. You will learn to identify flowers, herbs, shrubs, and trees appreciated not only their beauty, but for food, clothing and medicine by cultures young and old.
Suitable for adults and children alike, it’s a great way to explore many local ecosystems. Get to know the greens that thrive right here in Calgary!
$15 for adults, $5 for kids

Get back to the very beginnings of Flower Essences in this special 1-day class! In ceremony in the great outdoors, we will connect with the flowers in the fullness of their bloom, learning intuitively how to accept and use the gift of their energies for growth and healing. Personal experiences with the flowers will be shared and compared, to form a compendium of knowledge from our local flower spirits!
If the sun shines, we will create a special essence with the Sunshine Method for you to take home, so you can continue learning from the energies of the flowers.
