Sending down our Roots and remembering the Soul




Sending Down our roots and remembering the Soul


I studied Herbal Medicine in Ireland on an Apprenticeship course with Herbalist Nikki Darrel. We would often work outside learning directly with the plants, using our senses as well as our intellect. Becoming aware of our ability for non verbal communication and the intelligence of the natural world that we are a part of is a path to healing not only ourselves and others but our connection to nature. Our relationship to the plants we work with is what forms the basis for what is known by some as Plant Spirit Healing.

It was also in Ireland that I first came across the Labyrinth whilst Woofing at Carraig Dulra permaculture farm. The labyrinth can help us to forge a deeper connection with ourselves, helping to facilitate a sense of body awareness and bringing us in to altered states that are conducive to communicating with the plant kingdom. An awareness of the lower abdomen, heart and peripheral vision has been used by trackers and many hunter -gatherer cultures to tune in to the spirit of the land, animal and plant kingdoms.  I have recently written and illustrated a short book on this subject called, ”Re-wilding with the labyrinth”.

  1. Hi there,

    I’m looking at doing a herm labyrinth on my double-plot allotment. I wondered if I could meet up with you to discuss it?
