Tree Spirit Medicine: Hawthorn with Monika Ghent

Medicine from Hawthorn (Crataegus spp.): Following the Flow of Your Heart

It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.” Antoine de Saint-Exupéry


In this experiential workshop participants will receive the spirit medicine, wisdom, guidance and healing of Hawthorn.

The tree spirit medicine of Hawthorn is about following the flow of our heart, which aligns us with the intelligence of the natural world of which we are a part. This alignment helps us to regain the sense of wonder that we had as children and connects us to the aliveness and deep mystery of the world and within us. When we flow where our heart goes, we attune to the magic of life; we move in ease, love, deep connection, pure joy, adventurousness and trust. We are fearlessly open to whatever comes with greater understanding of our place in the world.
