Plants of the Hedge

 

Introduction

In Occvlta we understand witchcraft as a path that seeks to explore the limits of existence and grant us access to the Otherworld. Its aim is to bring us together with Otherness by transcending the self. In order to reach that state of Otherness, we feel it is necessary to interact with the Hedge, the boundary between Worlds, the barrier between the natural and the supernatural.
If we look at folklore and customary traditions, we will find that the Hedge is often represented by the area enclosed by a fence or a deep thicket of thorny bushes that protects the domestic world from the outside: a very powerful symbol that has been installed in our collective unconscious up to this day. This concept will serve as a Letimotiv in this course to be able to create an individual practice of Witchcraft, in which each attendee will create his/her own method of Hedgeriding with the help of the Land and Plant Allies of his/her choice.


With the help of occult herbalism we will discover the Plants of the Hedge, those that facilitate accessing the Otherworld and to carry out other practices associated with witchcraft, and we will try to discover their secrets and their role as allies in Spirit Flight.


We will offer a historical and folkloric framework in which to place the individual experience, perhaps serving as inspiration and a starting point to interact with the Land and its hidden aspects.
We believe that this course can help create a nexus between witchcraft and herbalism and the poison path, a practical starting point with a theoretical base to inspire us to create our own practice.


Who is this course aimed at?
This course is aimed at those who wish to work on primitive witchcraft and similar mysteric paths with the aid of the Land and the plant kingdom, so it would be recommended to herbalists, witchcraft practitioners, and those who walk the path of poisons, whatever level they may have.
