Learn Something New
This year's featured presenters:
With Wendy Snow Fogg, Herbalist/Educator/Field Witch
Wendy serves as High Priestess to the Coven of the Green Fire, a coven of herbalists, witches who honor the ancient path of the plant healers, Mother Earth Gaia and the God/Goddess in all living things. Growing up playing among the forest plants and stones, Wendy’s journey with the healing Plants began with a small garden of herbs gifted by a friend in 1984. The spirit of those plants guided her to healing this life and together they co-created a place of learning, healing, teaching, sanctuary. Misty Meadows Herbal Center in Lee, New Hampshire, founded by Wendy in 1989 has blossomed into that sanctuary place and over the years hundreds of students and visitors have found their healing among the gardens, fields, forest paths and woodland labyrinth.
A Journey Through the Labyrinth
With Tracy Andryc
Tracy Andryc has been sharing her love of the labyrinth since her first walk on its path in 1998. She sees the labyrinth as a universal tool that can be used in a magical/spiritual context, regardless of your religious path. Tracy is a Veriditas Certified Labyrinth Facilitator, Certified Birth Doula, Reiki Master and owner of One Path Labyrinth Ventures. She takes a holistic approach to her labyrinth work by incorporating other modalities such as crystal grids, sound and sacred dance. For almost two decades, she has facilitated workshops and rituals on the labyrinth and other topics at venues throughout New England. Tracy lives in Massachusetts, with her husband, three adult kids and three step-kids, happily playing with clay.
Alyssa is an artist, musician, and businesswoman local to Albany, NY. She has been creating jewelry for over 25 years, and uses the energies of natural stones to create meaningful accessories to help people focus on their life goals. She offers stone readings and divining stones workshops to those interested in further exploring the metaphysical properties of gemstones.
Jeff has spent the bulk of his adult life in a search for the ineffable. He has studied Taoist Sorcery within both the Quan Zhen and Zheng Yi branches of Taoism, learning some of the hidden secrets few in the west have been privy to. He has also studied with a personal student of Tom Yellowtail in the traditional Medicine ways of the Absaroke. Though not culturally of the First People, he has learned to appreciate the mindset and the system of teachings on how to relate appropriately to the unseen world. He has immersed himself in his ancestral path of ancient teachings that originate from the European pre-Christian Pagan metaphysics and spiritual path which are currently under reconstruction and reclamation. Jeff is a Pharmakeute and initiated member of the Ash, Birch and Willow Tradition, training directly with Raven and Stephanie Grimassi.
Bety Comerford is a shamanic healer and empath who has helped many people understand their empathic gifts and heal those parts of themselves that keep them from living a fulfilling life. She and Steve Wilson are the authors of The Reluctant Empath, The Empath's Quest: Finding your Destiny and The Empathic Ghost Hunter (to be released later by this year by Schiffer Publishing).
Kate Holly-Clark is a storyteller, artist, jeweler, poet, and feminist. She’s been published in Breath and Shadow, Three Drops From A Cauldron, and others.
