Plants that Speak, Souls that Sing
Weekend at Dilston Physic Garden
Ready to open your heart and explore the green world a little closer?
Join this practical and magical weekend to strengthen your connection with nature and open up to plant consciousness for guidance, healing and inspiration to enrich your path and broaden your understanding of plants.
We’ll explore how to follow your intuition, feel with your heart and build sacred relationships with key plant allies to enhance your day to day living and enjoy a more harmonious connection with yourself, with others and your environment. Simple exercises will guide you on a journey of transformation to meet the spirit of plants while at the same time aligning with your true nature and sense of purpose. You will be encouraged to open your heart and physical senses and be introduced to the Shamanic practice of plant spirit healing with Shamanic drumming, ceremony and movement to enable a deeper exploration of and interaction with plants. Each participant will also have the opportunity to receive a “limpia” (cleansing), a curandera (Medicine Woman) technique that Fay has learned from plant healers in the Amazon.
Dilston Physic Garden is alive at this time of year with many of the trees and plants at their best, flaunting an abundance of fruit or flowers. It’s a magical place to spend the weekend to absorb the vibrancy of the garden. There is so much to attract your physical senses and the vitality of high summer emits a powerful energy that tugs at your extra senses. It’s hard to ignore the hum of a garden so full of life. Your response to the sacred wisdom keepers that grow at Dilston Physic Garden will be unique as you journey closer to your true nature and back to wholeness.
I love nature, I feel healed and so happy in nature. I feel a deep connection with nature, but I don’t fully understand it, this is why I love Fay’s innovative workshops. They are exactly that connection which I’m trying to tap into, in order to have a better understanding of nature spirits.

What to Expect
Day 1: Today we will be landing in the sacred landscape of the garden and exploring our sacred relationship with plants through our physical senses. We will be using methods like meditation, breath work, journaling and observation to explore plants in a new way. We will be spending as much of the day as possible outside with the plants that call to us, using the Herbology hut as our home base and shelter.
Day 2: We journey deeper into the realm of plants with plant spirit shamanism and healing. In our sacred circle we will create ceremony and experience plant limpias (cleansing with plants). We’ll also use the drum to experience a shamanic journey to connect with the spirit of plants to add another dimension to our experience of plant medicine. There may also be an opportunity to make a sacred medicine to take home with you.
The content of this workshop is inspired by Fay’s journey with plant spirits as a former flower farmer, gardener and Shamanic Practitioner. The weekend covers concepts detailed in her new book Plants that Speak, Souls that Sing. Read more about Fay’s plant spirit journey here and check out her new book here.
