Well, the first Scottish Radical Herbal Gathering is almost upon us and I’m very excited to be delivering a talk with them this year. The programme for the weekend looks amazing and I look forward to hearing the contributions from others talking with anticipation.
For me, it will be the first time I have talked at length about the subject of folk magic and herbalism so I’m excited and perhaps a little nervous about it in equal measure. (Que the chamomile tea and kava perhaps!)
As part of the presentation on the day, I put together a small chapbook of the main themes covered in the talk given to those who attend. I thought folks here might want to have a copy so, I have provided it below (and it also means if I don’t have enough copies printed off it will be available online, yeah to forward planning!).
The little chapbook doesn’t cover all the topics and practical things I hope we have a chance to do and discuss but it does have a nice broad overview of the main points. It might also become a wee reminder of what was discussed in the time that follows.
The Chapbook is below and the mp3 spoken charms we will discuss are below this .
I hope you all find it interesting
