About the event

The deep intonation of an angelic name - the buzzy whistling of a plant's Icaro song - the augury in the calls of crows - all of these magickal practices involve sound being created and received. The vibration of sound is a powerful tool in our workings, and it can be made even more so in partnership with initiatic plants.

In this lecture, we will explore a few of my favourite herbs for enhancing the voice and hearing for ritual and magical use. We will talk about Calamus, an ally for making spells both true and useful, and Heimia, a rare Mazatec herb for ancestor communication and Nature scrying.

I'll share two flowers I love to work with for manifesting intent through mantra and automatic writing and trance speech- and both can be easily found at herb and tea shops. I will also talk about integrating a few more commonly-used magickal herbs and formulas which are not usually associated with sound work, but which can be brought into this practice.

This lecture will give a solid foundation for understanding the auditory and spoken aspects of magick in a new way, connecting to untapped aspects of familiar herbal beings, as well as exploring new plant allies to bring a richer sensory dimension to our practices.

About the Presenter:

Micah Abraxas Nilsson is the co-creator of Al-Kemi, a company making Spagyric and Alchemical extracts of herbs and minerals for healing, meditation, spiritual and magickal practice.  She has lectured at the National College of Naturopathic Medicine in Portland and Bastyr University in Seattle, as well as at many conferences on entheogens, herbalism, and magic. In her 32 years in this work, her focus has been in connecting directly and deeply with the plant beings, communing with them as both a healing and spiritual path. Weaving together the scientific and initiatic in her teachings, she helps others connect with the green spirit of nature, which surrounds and flows through us all.
