I am so thrilled to head off to one of Provence’s most beautiful regions to learn more about the healing power of plants and herbs in Sault among the lavender fields of Provence. We will spend our days surrounded by the healing fragrances of aromatic plants and learn the fundamentals of herbalism. Any plant-lovers out there, who want to join us?
Sacred Nature is holding a 4 Day Herbal Workshop in Provence June 23-26th and there are just a few spots left! This immersive workshop is in the heart of Provence, the center of aromatic plant medicine. The healing power of plants and aromatherapy have been something I have been learning about over the past few years with my own health, so am thrilled to delve deeper. And, best of all, I will be attending along side my herbalist sister @risingrootswellness as she expands her expertise to the plants from Provence!
Here’s more about the workshop and what to expect:
“During this workshop you will be submersed into the world of herbalism; from learning the fundamentals of herbal medicine making, to diving deep into the plant spirit realm. You will learn all about local medicinal plants, how to identify, make medicine and build an intimate relationship with them. Discover the basics of herbal alchemical spagyric preparations, embark on shamanic journeys and learn about the properties of local plants and herbs that have been used as medicine for hundreds of years. This will be a fun interactive workshop and a unique opportunity to connect with like-minded people, and friends from the green realms.”
This first summer workshop will run for four full days, from 10 am – 6 pm from June 23-26th, 2019.
Here’s more about the founders of Sacred Nature:
“At Sacred Nature, we specialise in high-quality, intimate tours where we delve into the most remarkable medicinal plant sanctuaries on earth.
From tropical rainforests, high and wild mountains, to the poetic and rich landscapes of Provence, you will have an authentic experience connecting with mystical cultures who maintain a deep connection with nature and spirit alike and who still possess ancient wisdom that so many have forgotten.
More than a tour, what we offer are sacred journeys, where you will not only discover the healing power of medicinal herbs, ancient healing practices and different cultural traditions, but rediscover your own sacred nature. We are sure you will live a transformative and authentic adventure where you will deepen your connection with nature and with yourself. “
The workshop will be held on private land, in a charming old farmhouse situated next to a beautiful forest, just outside the magical medieval village of Sault. Sault is famous for its lavender fields and proximity to the legendary Mont Ventoux.
Sault is an exceptionally attractive village, even if just to sit quietly on a cafe terrace for a while, both because of the historical centre and the beauty of the surrounding landscapes, a visit is highly recommended.
Among the streets and squares in the centre of Sault, there are some fine 16th century stone houses to admire, often with decorative and ornate doors and windows and first floor balconies.
The location of Sault to the east of Mont Ventoux, a popular Tour de France cycling challenge, make it a popular destination with cyclists. It is also an important centre of the Provence lavender industry, and a centre for those wishing to see the magnificent lavender fields in flower – it is part of the popular route de la Lavande which passes through several towns and villages in the lavender growing region.
Sault is also an excellent base for exploring the region, with numerous small villages waiting to be discovered within a 20-kilometre radius. Among those, we have visited our favourites include Simiane la Rotonde, the little villages of Reilhanette, Aurel and Brantes, and the thermal station at Montbrun-les-Bains.
Scenic destinations close to Sault include the Gorges de la Nesque and the Montagne de Lure. There is an attractive pathway that follows below the cliffs in the Gorges de la Nesque, while the Montagne de Lure is a barren mountain area which is also home to a small ski station.
