Dreaming Medicine

Xokiin Retreat Centre
Punta Allen, Mexico (south of Tulum)

January 29 – February 4, 2023

Join Abrah and Mark for a week exploring the relationship between the medicine in plants, dreams, the land, sea, sky, stars and in your heart. Traditional healers, including herbalists, have used dreams to gather knowledge of a plant’s medicine, illness and the path to heal. During this week we will take a deep dive into the what it means to dream, the many ways to dream and discover the medicine you carry, the earth offers, and plants give. This week offers you the opportunity to participate in both group and personal explorations, Qi Gong, mandala making and meditation. During the week we will also make some medicine with local plants. You will also have plenty of time to exhale, enjoy the beach, the breeze in the coconut trees, and the soothing warmth of the Caribbean Sea.

Upcoming Workshops with Margi Flint

Drop Pulse Testing: Confirmations with Drop-Pulse testing and Dowsing

Friday, May 28th, 2023  6:30 – 8:30 pm
At the end of an hour or so of verbal questioning I let my mind relax and share Drop-Pulse testing to confirm which of the herbs to use for my client. Test bottles containing tinctures, or dried herbs from the apothecary, or fresh herbs from the garden can all be employed. Clients love this testing, for they are directly involved in the process. They see the drop fall onto their wrist and note a response. When confirmed with a positive reaction the drop is experienced on the tongue. They are joining their energies with the herbs to feel a response, whilst I observe physical changes or feel pulse changes under my fingertips. As a practitioner I note pulse, pupil,color, tension, temperature, moisture and overall impact of our plant friends on the person sitting before me. Learn to relax your mind and share Drop-Pulse testing. Clients love this testing, for they are directly involved in the process. Test tinctures, dried herbs, or fresh herbs to sense responses.

Reading the Body: Visual Indications to Understand Organ Energetics

Saturday, May 29, 2023 – 10:00 to 4pm   &

Sunday, May 30, 2023 – 10:00 to 3pm

Reading the body’s colors, lines, facial, tongue and fingernail changes offers practitioners confirmation, or better still, initial direction for the herbs to be consumed. Some of these indications change when better health is achieved.To understand the importance of visual indications has been the foundation of my practice. Face, tongue and fingernails, toes, colors and the wide variety of lines and their depth is crucial for accurate understanding of energetic health. The physical body cannot be separated from the spiritual or mental aspects of self. Those skills taught by the late William LeSassier and then new indications from David Winston, and then Matthew Wood, have allowed me to find compliance with clients, narrow down the decisions about which herbs to employ with each client, and confirm my thoughts around which endocrine gland, organ system, or emotional state is under duress. The energetics appear on, in, and into words in unique ways with each person who sits before me. I do believe this skill needs to be introduced early in herbal studies.
