Awakening the Dreamer Symposium
Nov

11:00 AM11:00

Awakening the Dreamer Symposium

Awakening the Dreamer is a transformative educational program developed by the Pachamama Alliance that explores the challenges facing humanity at this critical moment in time and the opportunities we as a human family have to create a new future.

In Awakening the Dreamer, you'll look squarely at the state of the world—where we are and how we got here—and then explore what role you can play in bringing forth an environmentally sustainable, spiritually fulfilling, socially just human presence on this planet.

Awakening the Dreamer was created in response to an invitation from the Achuar people of the Ecuadorian Amazon to work in partnership to shift the dominant culture of consumption and alienation to one that honors and sustains all life.

You'll start with an examination of the ways in which the current "dream" of the modern world is impacting the environment, our relationship with one another, and our own sense of purpose.

You will explore how this all came to be, and confront the powerful unexamined assumptions that are at the heart of the current crisis we are in—as a species and as a planet.

You’ll hear about the new story emerging at this time in history—a story that recognizes how profoundly connected everyone and everything is.

You will come to see that a new future is possible and that a huge, unstoppable movement is already emerging and in action, committed to creating a new story for humanity.

You’ll look at actions you can take, on your own and with others, and new ways of being that are consistent with your vision and stand. And, you will have the opportunity to go deeper with the programs of Pachamama Alliance’s Up to Us engagement pathway.

Join us for an inspiring and engaging experience!

midsummer mugwort magic & wildcrafting
Jun
24
2:00 PM14:00

midsummer mugwort magic & wildcrafting

DATE CHANGE: We'll now gather on Sunday, as there are severe thunderstorms predicted tomorrow. Follow the link below to register. Thank you!

 


Commonly thought of as a weed in modern times, Mugwort is a highly versatile plant that has a vast history of medicinal, culinary and magical uses.

The scientific name is Artemisia vulgaris, after Artemis, the Goddess of the Hunt. Vulgaris means common - yet Mugwort's effects are anything but. This plant is associated with the moon, feminine energy, and can be used for divination. Mugwort induces lucid dreaming and aids in astral travel. On a more practical level, it aids and stimulates digestion, acts as a topical astringent and anesthetic, and so much more.

In this experiential workshop, we will learn how to identify and respectfully harvest local wild mugwort. With our harvest we will make smudge wands and crowns in honor of Midsummer's Eve. We will also undergo a plant journey meditation and commune with this magical spirit. You'll walk away knowing how to work with mugwort in practical, culinary, and magical ways.

Please bring a journal and a pen, and a basket or bag for your wildcrafting haul!

This workshop will be held rain or shine.

If you have any questions, email jordan@ostaraapothecary.com or liz.neves@mac.com

healing plant walk & experience - every other friday
Mar

to Oct 26

healing plant walk & experience - every other friday

**Final walk of the season is on October 26! Please check the MINKA calendar for updates.**


Every plant has medicine. We all knew this once, yet in only a few generations many of us have forgotten. Fortunately the memory is still there, deep in our bones. Here is an opportunity to remember.

Deeply rooted amidst the layers of built environment, healing plants are thriving. They are waiting to teach us resilience and other important lessons. Join us to learn from these wise teachers, our elders, the plants. 

We’ll begin class at MINKA Brooklyn and head out together to Prospect Park to explore the healing plants that grow all around us. Using all of our senses we’ll experience the plants, and connect with them in meditation. We’ll drink a nourishing infusion, either a plant that is currently growing in the park or one that is in season in our bioregion. In case of inclement weather, we’ll connect with the plants indoors, tasting infusions, looking at specimens, and in meditation.

Investment: $18-33

This workshop will be held rain or shine. If you have any questions, email: liz (dot) neves (at) mac (dot) com

heal the past to heal the future: a family tree workshop

heal the past to heal the future: a family tree workshop

My 3rd Great Grandmother, Elizabeth Hyde

My 3rd Great Grandmother, Elizabeth Hyde

We are the result of generations of relationships. Relationships built on love & war, tension & tenderness, of happenstance. As humans we have many opportunities to empower ourselves and each other. Opportunities to establish connections that nourish ourselves and the whole. We have a responsibility to break the patterns that no longer serve us. Going to our roots and working with our ancestors and family lineage can help move forward to live our higher purpose and embody our luminous selves.

Session 1 : Journey to the Past

Session 2: Shapeshifting: Creative Family Tree building/Exploration

Session 3: Shaping the Future

We will work creatively to envision our family tree through meditation, journeying, and collaging. Please bring as much information about your family tree as you can. Also please bring personal objects for the altar and for your family tree.

We look forward to holding space for this unique approach to healing!

MINKA Holiday Bazaar

Come shop for your holiday gifts, meet local makers, and get your mini healing sessions on all at the same time!!

MINKA brooklyn's first annual holiday bazaar is filled with beautifully crafted magical goods, healing practitioners, and card and palm readers!  You can pre-book your mini sessions by emailing info@MINKAbrooklyn.com!

I've made some beautiful herbal goodies, sacred jewelry, personal talismans, and will be offering gift certificates for my services as well. 

Support local healers and makers for meaningful gifts this holiday season, or get a little self-care and goodies for yourself!
