As the days shorten, what a perfect time to make cordial. The craft of cordial is an old time skill that is so wonderful and delicious that it has continued through to our time. A cordial is an alcohol infused with herbs, spices, and fruits to create an elixir that can be sipped solo or mixed into other libations.
You are invited to join for a delectable evening that includes 2 styles of cordial making with a focus not just on taste, but also on the spirit medicine of the plants. And of course, there will be cordial to sip!
With an enthusiasm for plant spirit medicine, magic, and all things delicious, Amy Semler has been blending cordials with intention for over 15 years. Having studied with Karyn Sanders and Sarah Holmes at the Blue Otter School of Herbal Medicine, DeAnna Batdroff at the Dyhanna Center, and Gail Julian, she uses her knowledge gained from these teachers of how plants bring their medicine as healing on spiritual, emotional, and physical levels to create libations for the mind, body and soul. As a herbalist Amy brings this same knowledge and respect for plants as an offering for her clients. Living in Sebastopol, growing and ethically harvesting plants as medicine is a passion of hers that leads to a deeper understanding of how to be in balance and respect the gifts of nature.
