Hot Springs NC ✨ Lauren Haynes (of Wooden Spoon Herbs) and Ali are co-facilitating an overnight retreat centered on honoring our relationships with the plants & fungi that grow around us. We'll be staying at the historic Sunnybank Inn, a bed and breakfast and hiker hostel along the AT.

Plans together include...
✔️hike to the top of Max Patch, a serene grassy bald (pictured here) that is home to many medicinal plant relations
✔️a class on Southern Folk Medicine (we're gonna determine our individual constitutions through the lens of this lineage!)
✔️discussion of the edible and medicinal mushrooms of the Southeast and safe foraging practices
✔️a kava chai ceremony to open our ❤️s
✔️an evening soak in the nearby hot springs
✔️morning tea ceremony
✔️plant meditations + exploring our intuition
✔️quiet alone time, if you'd like 🌟The space we want to hold for this weekend is open, relaxed, improvisational, and group-directed. We look forward to co-creating with all those who join! 🌟 Our weekend begins Friday evening and ends Sunday mid-morning. The sweet staff of the Inn provide us with six vegetarian meals over the course of the weekend. 🍉🌽 🌟 Call Sunnybank Inn at 828-622-7206 to register or visit link in profile for more info.

Joe and Ali of Forest Folk Fungi will host a conversation about the many benefits of medicinal mushrooms. We'll discuss how developing relationships with these powerful allies can promote physical wellness as well as spiritual wellbeing. From teas, extracts, and powders to delicious recipes, we'll learn how to work mushroom medicine into our daily lives. They will also share information about cultivating gourmet and medicinal mushrooms in our homes and gardens, how to find edible and medicinal mushrooms in our Southeastern forests, and safe foraging practices.

This class will be held in store, in a smaller setting so we can only hold 15 people. We greatly look forward to this night. We will have light snacks & local tea provided (from our new Forest Folk Fungi tea).
