2011 Looking back at a Magical Year, 2012 hints of things to come…
2011 was a turning point year for me, because it was when I got bit with the herbalism bug big time and by the end of which I was on what I knew to be my path as an herbalist and healer.
In the course of the year I completed an herbal apprenticeship and, while I was doing that, I had also been studying with two other herbalists so that was like doing two and half apprenticeships. It was a year filled with attending numerous plant walks, herbal workshops and my first herbal conference
It was the year which began with informal consultations with others about their own healing and the year when people started asking to buy my tinctures, glycerites and herbal infused honeys and I started selling them. And the year I started to be asked about teaching private lessons and workshops.
The year I started wild crafting, building my herbal library, collections of medicinal herbs and herbal medicines that I had made. And more.
A beginning but what an amazing and magical one!
And in 2012, I’ll be teaching, consulting, growing medicinal herbs, assisting other herbalists in their teaching and much, much more.
I also started this blog very informally in 2011 at the encouragement of others and in 2012 I’ll start the more formal work here and developing this site.
So magic just grows!
