Wild Elixirs :

creating fresh medicines of potency 

with Jacqui Bushell

Herbalism is a path of passion, love and deep sensory engagement with our earth. It also requires accountability, as where and how our herbs are grown and gathered has great impact not only on their medicinal effectiveness but also on the environment. Come along, to identify and connect shamanically with our local medicine plants and experience deep communion with their essential nature. Learn how to ethically wildcraft and listen to a plant’s innate wisdom. Create dynamic fresh plant tinctures with radiant life force and prescribed according to wholistic vitalist principles. In this workshop, you will create your own wild elixirs experiencing how to bring forth the vitality of the plant so it can shine in the heart, body and mind.

Finding the

Goddess Within :

Tulsi the Goddess Plant

with Lis Conlon

Learn how connecting with and honouring the consciousness of a plant can assist you to connect with and honour your own inner archetypes; in this case your Inner Goddess.


Lis will share some of her own personal transformational experiences with Tulsi the Goddess Plant. She will teach you plant communication techniques to help you connect with Tulsi and gently support you through deep meditative states using her voice, instruments and sacred sound.


Lis will also facilitate a shamanic journey on her ceremonial drum to guide you to a rich inner world. In that intuitive state you will engage with the sentient consciousness of Tulsi and receive the personal messages that Tulsi has for you.

You will experience a beautiful “Music of the Plants” meditation to assist with deepening your appreciation of the energetic and electromagnetic impulses from Tulsi the Goddess Plant.


Time will be available to share and write your insights and experiences – be sure to bring a pen and journal.

Bush Wise

Pat has lived on farms or in the bush most of her life and is passionate about sharing knowledge. 

Learn what “weeds” and native plants we can eat, use as medicine or for other uses.


Taste-test some of the plants eaten and used by Australia's first people, such as bunya nuts and Illawarra plum pine. Discuss how early colonisers survived using bush foods, and learn how to use bush spices in your everyday cooking.
