Sensory Solutions Aims and Objectives
Our aim is to connect people with their local medicinal plants, giving them more autonomy in their health. We are primarily two herbalists who work together promoting herbal medicine, magic and connection to nature and the green world around us. Sensory Solutions is a Community Interest Company which basically means we place value in community and are a not-for-profit organisation.
We use a broad range of methods in our teaching to instill a deeper and lasting sense of connection with the plants. Methods include sensory experiences (the unleashing of individual senses; sight, smell, touch, taste, intuition), and creativity through drawing, painting, sculpture, singing, and active meditations. We believe that you need to experience each plant fully to get to know it.
Like people, the more we interact with the plants the more they reveal themselves to us, and the more confident we can be about using them for medicine. We engage people through consultations as herbalists, workshops, discussions, tastings, talks and herb walks.
The world is full of medicinal bounty and it is within us all to know how to enhance our lives emotionally, physically and spiritually. We hope to introduce people to plants or to deepen their relationships with the plant world.
We have worked with folk from all walks and stages of life, children, teenagers, vulnerable adults. We have toured festivals working with thousands of people who expressed an interest in herbal medicine. When people start to work with plants amazing things start to happen.
We run apprenticeships and retreats for those who want to take this interest further and are available to community groups, projects and organisations. As a CIC there are funding opportunities available if costs are an issue.
We live by our herbs....
We donate our time and offer support to many community-based projects and many people have supported us along our journey too. We are grateful for all the support throughout the years. If you feel you have the abundance to support our project please donate here.
