IN-PERSON TALK AND DEMONSTRATION
Come sit in the grass surrounded by the fragrant flowers of Stanley Park’s Rose Garden with Indigenous herbalist and educator Lori Snyder for an intro to flower essences and how they can support your well-being! During this in-person program, Lori will demonstrate how to make your own flower essence and speak to the ways connecting with nature can benefit us, including sharing some teachings from the Medicine Wheel and the Four Directions. Don’t forget to bring a chair or blanket for this outside program, and also a notebook and pen for an exercise you will do!
Lori stewards a medicine wheel garden at the Moberly Arts and Cultural Centre. She is currently working with the David Suzuki Foundation as a Butterfly Ranger and consulting with both the foundation and the YWCA at Evelyn Crabtree on native plants and their importance in our ecological relationship with other living beings. She is the Artist in Residence at Hastings Community Centre for 2021, offering the teachings of plant wisdom through various art mediums.
This program will meet outside of the Stanley Park Pavilion (located near the Stanley Park Bus Loop and Miniature Railway off of Pipeline Road). Please try to arrive at least 15 minutes in advance of the program.

We gratefully acknowledge that the land on which we gather and help steward is the unceded and traditional territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) Nation, and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nation. Since time immemorial, Coast Salish peoples have lived reciprocally with the land, harvesting and cultivating foods and medicines and practicing ceremony. The abundance of these lands and waters, which enables us to live, work, and play here today, is a result of the past and on-going stewardship and advocacy of the Coast Salish peoples.
